I have a 20x16I have an all birch cheapo 18x16 bass and it sounds GREAT (proper heads, minimal muffling, good tuning of course). I am probably in the minority here, but I have always preferred the 16" depth for all bass drums regardless of diameter.
I played in country rock bar bands professionally for 20 years with an '80's GRESTCH 16x22 and got more comments on that bass drum than any other. I would get a 16x20 if I were in your situation. I currently have the 18" and the 22" in 16" depth, guess I need a 20" also.
