Re: Can I keep my toms low on a 22" kick?

Re: should I jam with a big band???

Re: Are our ears tuned to tradition?

I'm guessing most of this has to do with consistent build quality. as for the sound there are so many foot pedals and electronics now that i don't think it matters. ButI don't play a guitar.
