24" vs 26" bass drum, AKA "Useful vs a deep desire to 'just have'."

I owned a 26" for many years. While it looks and sounds great, it is a problem on the road. In addition to the space it takes up in the trailer, not every stage can accommodate. Now I have a 24" and am much happier with it. I will still use a 22" a backline on fly dates just for convenience, and I also own a 20" for small er venues and clubs where space may be an issue.

I love my 24x14 Ludwig Classic Maple. It's perfect to my hears.

If there's a better-sounding kick drum out there, I've not heard it yet.

I've said it before in another thread, but a 24"14 ludwig classic maple is my perfect sounding kick. Playing it felt like I was whacking a hippo with a paddle too, in a nice way.
