I very much dig this set up! I am an idiot for having sold two 20x8 woofer bass drums & pine for one...22x8 would be a blast! Every time I come across a deal on a woofer shell I go through the same process of adding the cost of lugs, bearing edges, rims, wrap et al and the regret creeps back...mark my words though: I will rectify the situation!If you like the sizes you're using now, consider a "Woofer" type bass drum instead.
It allows you to fit on smaller stages (as BD depth is typically the factor that allows you to setup comfortably on stage, or teeter on the edge).
I have a 22x8 BD and it works great. You really don't lose very much sound, compared to a 22x16 or 18.
The main difference is you loose a lot of the boominess (so not as much muffling needs to be used).
Makes the drum much less clumsy to haul around too.
...anyway, something to consider...
