I plan on ordering a shell pack in the next couple of weeks, and I have been tring to get as much information as possible. I am looking to spend around $700. My local Guitar Center does not carry DDRUM. I was tring to choose from a DDRUM defiant 7 piece (ebay. the single bass drum model) made out of basswood, or DDRUM Dominion Player AMX 4-Piece(musiciansfriend). My friend had a DDRUM Diablo which is made of basswood and I liked the sound of the kit. What is the difference in a snare that is (5.5 x 14) compare to (7x14) holding the type of wood constant. I like punk rock and rock music.
