Tom head for a bass drum? WTF?


Well-known member
Seems crazy, I know. But I am unable to find a low-volume 18" mesh head for my 18" bass drum. Seems the most difficult size to find! There are tons of 20" and 22" around, but 18" are harder to find.

How viable in the mid-term (perhaps things could change in a few months...perhaps the market evolves around Christmas time...) would be to fit in the bass drum a 18" tom mesh head with the impact zone taped for protection?

As for the beater, it would be a wood one. Just this one.

Any thoughts on this would be pretty welcome.
