Totally agree... I love 14" floor toms!Yep, count me among the 22, 12, 14 crowd as well. My INDe kit has a 10 & 12rack with both a 14 and 16 floor, but I almost always use it with just the 12 & 14. For me, a 14X14 is perfect. The 16" sounds awesome playing it, but the added depth does not translate into the room as well as the 14" seems to do. Just my experience so YMMV!
Here's my old 12/14/24. I sometimes wish I had kept it because it was such a great sounding set. The 14x14 FT was one of the best sounding FT's I've owned, but I needed the money at the time and that huge 16x24 bass drum was a bear to carry.I love the 12/14/22 combo. I've definitely used it a bunch. Heck, I recently used a 12/14/24 combo (pictured).
Back in the 80's, I rocked a blue CB-700 kit in the ubiquitous 22/12/13/16/14x5 setup....Also, have a DW with these sizes but additional 13,16 for variations.
