I hear you, but like I said, sizing is almost everything to me and the only way to get what I want is by custom order unfortunately. If I could find a Sonor kit in a local store with a 15" floor tom and 7" deep rack toms (and 20" bass drum), I'd be happy to just buy that and not bother about what type of wood and how thick.And like the post above someone questions / gives advice on lay up . When in my opinion how can they really know what another another fella needs ??
Just make a kit put it in the store and I’ll buy it …I’ll not second guess whether I should had that inner ply scandi birch or Australian maple …..
I just thought I'd dredge the opinions of others who have gone through the same process while I'm at it, hoping that this helps others who are wondering the same things.
