Over all the years has any bass drum left its mark on you?. Not in a recording...LIVE wether it be concert..jam session..club...drumshop. I remember years..MANY years ago listening to a friend's 24" ride cymbal and flipping over it. I leave the house and go on with my life only to think why haven't I ever owned one. In the course of my life I can still remember bass drums that turned my head. A 16x22 gretsch natural finish kit in a local club as well as a 14x20 blue gretsch drum blue sparkle again in a club yet I never ever investigated gretsch...why?. Is it odd that both drums were gretsch?. Both USA custom kits. Any of you crazy about a bass drum that you still think about and oddly never owned?. Maybe you were smart and acted upon your inspiration. Where was the kit at and what kind of BD was it?.
