What really got me thinking about it seriously was that I brought the 'small' drums kit into the house, and have been playing it alone and with my small group for a few weeks. (Just trying to make lemonade out of the lack of gigs that call for it)

In the end, I just really like the bigger sound of the 22" in a big band format. I readily admit that the problem may be my tuning of that drum, and I'll probably try some different things over the next few weeks to see what I can get it to do, but for now the status quo holds.

There's not any big advantage to standardizing, except having the exact same setup all the time. At the same time, I like being able to change the sound of my 'standard' six piece setup just by choosing different drums.


... And the early history of Swing is behind you.

We've seen the early Swing drummers. They incorporated larger diameter Bass Drums as part of their traps. I'm sure they simply played what was available; but that contributed to the accepted Swing sound - and for practical purposes that's commensurate with your ultimate conclusion.

I'm betting your tuning was on the mark Wink
