I recently purchased a really nice Gretsch New Classic Maple kit with a 20/10/12/14. Beautiful kit, no question. But I have decided, like I already knew, for the music I play, small bass drums dont cut it for me. My original purpose for getting this kit was to use it in my studio which is where it is going. But of course I had to gig with it at least once. So I did. On Friday I played my Holiday kit with its fabulous 22 at an outdoor gig and that my friends is a fantastic bass drum. Last night I played the NC kit with the 20 and sorry...it just felt small to me. Out front it sounded fine based on my recording, but behind the kit, nothing like the Rogers. So, for me, live, it will only be 22s or 24s. As it should be.
