Right now in my drum room I have 4 bass drums set up. Two 18's and two 20's. The 18's are both tuned higher with single ply coated heads on both sides. One of the 20's is like that as well but tuned lower and has a loose T-shirt inside. The other 20 has a pinstripe batter and an old Fiberskyn 2 on the front with nothing inside. None of the drums are ported. This is more often than not how I deal with bass drums, but after doing it for this many decades, I've tried just about everything possible.
