Ginger Baker's main floor tom when he was with Cream in the '60s was always a 14x14 and that size sure worked OK for him playing rock.14” floor toms for rock is way too small.
In fact, it works for me too. My Legacy Maple kit has 8x12, 9x13, 14x14 and 14x16 toms and the 14x14 kicks a$$. It's all in the tuning (and in the touch, of course).
I voted for 22/14/12 because I haven't used a bass drum smaller than a 22 in close to 50 years. I like the heft I get from 22s. It's easier to dial-back a 22 than it is to make a 20 sound bigger.
