Who would say 22/16/13 is more versatile than 20/14/12?

the 8X12 tom convert to snare (I did) didn't hurt either.

^ how I found it

20,12 (12) 16
Whoa! I forgot what brand my first "kit" was. I have one picture (barely) and I think you jogged the memory with that name. Someone trash picked them for me. No bottom hoops or heads anywhere...

I think it was 20-12-13-16, but who knows...

I played 12, 14, 20 for years, only kit I had.
I used to think I could make it work for everything, but now I feel bigger drums for a pop/rock setting is the way to go.
So have both!

LOL. I was playing pop and rock with a sub micro kit (an Odery Cafe with 14" bass drum), and recently went big with a Yamaha bop kit. Comparing the Yamaha 18/12/14 + 14 snare to the Odery 14/10/12 + 12 snare made me feel like I had graduated to a stadium size kit :) I do have some 20/12/14 kits that I am too lazy to lug around, a 22/12/14/16 kit that I will never use, as well as a 24/13/16 kit that, surprisingly, I am more comfortable playing than the 22 BD kit. There is something about a 22" bass drum that turns me off.
