I have a tough time with 20's, I don't know what it is. Maybe I play too much rock.

Anyone here play a smaller 12x22 for sound or lightweight purposes ?

I picked up an old 12x22 Leedy ("SlingerLeedy") a couple of years ago. Great-sounding drum. I use it mainly on symphony gigs - either as part of a multiple-percussion setup, or as a secondary bass drum. (On one annual symphony pops concert, I have to cover some "section" parts from the kit, and it's nice to have a second bass drum that's closer to the sound of an orchestral bass drum, vs. the "thud" of a drum set kick.)

I played two sets Monday night with my 12x22 1960 Ludwig New Yorker bass drum.
It sounded fricken great!

If I knew I wouldn't kill the resale value of my Brooklyn kit, I'd cut my 18x22 to a 12x22.

Made a little portable set using a Keller 22x10 bd. Work pretty well for low volume gigs and great at practice time.

I have a 60's single tension Gretsch 12x22 bass drum that is fantastic! Killer drum for any application!

My special order C&C Player Date has a 12x22.
we need some video of this bad boy.
I'm out of town (in Nashville) most of next week starting Sunday but I'll see what I can do. I haven't recorded anything from the basement yet so it'd be a good project.
