22" by 12"

I don't know. The only 12" deep kick I've ever played was a DW Frequent Flyer, but it was a 20 x 12. I didn't like the way it sounded. However, I'd love to have a vintage Ludwig 3-ply or modern Classic Maple 26 x 12. This sound haunts me.

Any thoughts on this bass drum size?

Ginger Baker on his his green DW Kit played two kick drums: 22" X 12" and 20" X 12". If it worked for Ginger it should work fine for you.
It's either all about the convenience, the sound or both.
