    Did Tama use beavertail lugs? C&C designed their lugs to be a modern Art Deco throwback to the old Beavertail style.

      It would look like you borrowed your Grandfathers kit for the night. I get it. It is just another trend going around. Old is new again. I like it much better than their long single lug, long tension rod kits. Buy what you like, and don't worry about what others think about it.

        I have the old school, four piece kit in my drum room. This is actually the real deal. 1940's Leedy kit. It has a cool vibe because it is actually old, not just pretending to be.

          God forbid someone wants a modern kit with a vintage vibe, burn them all!

            I love the short toms, and I also love the idea of them being the same depth. I had a set of 8", 10", 12" toms, that were all 8" deep, and they looked great, and sounded fantastic. I have owned and played many 22" bass drums, and I think 18" is plenty deep. They sound powerful, and are easier to transport then a 20" deep drum. I have also played 22" x 16", and 22" x 14", and they also sound great.

                I'm getting curious as to what color your thinking of getting.
                Do you have the option of getting black or nickle hardware.

                      Love the matching depth rack toms but I’d go with 8”, big fan of non-square floor toms, but I’d go with a 22x16 kick personally. Deep kicks look weird to me and don’t sound as good to me, personally. What finish are you going for?

                        22x16 is my favorite size too!!!!!

                          Heres what im thinking.
                          10x7 RT
                          12x7 RT
                          14x12FT
                          16x14FT
                          22x20K
                          13x5.5 Snare

                          Im curious to know what every one thinks of have 2 matched depth rack toms. I mean ive seen a couple of pics getting around and it looks great but does it sound ok? And are there any negatives? I preference the shallow toms cause im a short *** and like the toms alittle lower with out too much angle.

                          also whats ever ones thoughts on the 22x20 kick. Ive all ways been a fan of massive kick drums but recently i played a MHX 22x14kick and was so impressed by the depth and tone it wasnt funny!

                          Let me know what yous all reakon!!! Cheers!
                          My only suggestion would be that, if you plan to sell or upgrade the kit in the future, then I would change the 12x7 to 12x8 and the 22x20 to a 22x18.

                          The 22x20 and the 12x7 are not very popular (which is why most shell packs don't contain them) so you'd have a hard time selling it later. Many people won't by a kit if it has a particular drum that is an odd size. The 13x5.5 snare drum is also not very popular, but you can always resell a kit without a snare drum.

                          Of course, if that is not any of your concern, then get what you want.
