You're welcome.Thanks for the post. I actually found a guy on Reverb. He posted a brand new 20" bass that he built. I had not heard of them yet, I don't think. Although the snares he's built look like something recently posted over on Drummerworld. The bass drum looks GREAT! But I don't know if I want to add to my existing FrankenTama "hip gigger" kit, OR get a 3/4 piece in a used players condition.
Oh, the guy's name is STUBBELFIELD? Out of N.Carolina I think it was? Seriously nice looking bass drum, reasonably priced too.
Heck, now I'm back to considering the local Catalina kit with an 18" bass. . . . ..
YOU ALL HAVE THOROUGHLY MESSED ME UP AGAIN! Ha But you've given me more options.
I'll probably get tar'd and feathered for this, but this kit you're putting together is for playing Rock'n'Roll, right?
I would look more at the Yamaha Stage Custom Bop kit than the little Gretsch Catalina.
I've heard a number of those Cat's and they all seemed to have a bit of a weak bass drum signal.
The Yamaha's bass seems to come across with a little more gusto.
...JMHO, based on what I've heard from both kits, in person.
When you call the Stubblefield guy about his drums, listen real close....should be some slammin' funk goin' on in the back somewhere.
