I like shallow toms too though .
Then get the toms however you like them. The point was going shallow with the bass but not necessarily going that much smaller with the diameter.

Guys, timely thread here.....in need of a decent bop sized kit I can leave behind stored at a local private sailing club for our house band where we may play 4-5x/year, no more. Tired of schlepping the whole slingy kit and am of the age where loading in/out is no longer desired (snare, cymbals, few stands OK).

Sooooo, Ludwig Breakbeats? Catalina Club?.....are they total crap or will they get this limited job done? (jazz, lite rock, bossa genres, nothing heavy, i.e. older folks music).

Thoughts??
I don't know about Breakbeats but I've attended a few Jazz gigs where the drummer used a Cat Club kit and it sounded fine from the audience side.

Elvis....thx for that, and IIRC the late/great Tommy Wells did just fine and even recorded with 'em.

Anyone, more feedback....on both Cat Club and Breakbeats.

Thx in advance!

You're welcome.
Just re-discovered this video.
Cat Club with Paiste PST7's.
Hope this helps....


Here's a piece of gig footage with those drums, too....
