22" vs. 20" Bass Drum

Post by HM » Fri Aug 29, 2003 3:40 pm

I am repairing some old drums to make a set. <BR>I have two good 20" BD ,. and a 22" missing <BR>skin and fittings, will I have a much deeper <BR>and dubby sound with 22" or is it not worth <BR>the hassle ?

HM: don't know if this is really true, but I've always been told that smaller drums &#40;especially bass drums&#41;have a better sound for recording than larger ones. Anyone else have any experience with different size drums? Peace. Dan
