    18x12 or 18x14? Or 20?

    About to order a new bass drum for my USA Custom Jazz Legends kit in Mardi Gras finish. It comes with a 16x12” bass drum and 12x8 and 14x14 toms. Super fun size to play but I need something with a fuller sound and a bit more volume. Has to be 18 diameter. USA Custom makes most sense, I guess...

    Advice: 16x12 or 16x14, or even 16x13 bass drum?

    Hello, I've been searching the market for a small bass drum to use with my Sakae Trilogy toms (10", 12", 13", 14" and 16" in gold sparkle finish). As a note: Sakae didn't make 16" Trilogy bass drums, hence this post. I already have 18", 20" and 24" bass drums so the "bass drum" thing is...
