    The wood hoops make it look legit, IMO. I wish there were more local Sonor dealers so I can try one out. The sizes are a bit too extreme for me to just jump on.

    Yeah, jumping right in with a 16" BD could be a bad move. The jungle riser that Pearl make is a good way of testing the water - fix it to a floor tom and see how you go.

    However, an 18x14 bass drum could actually take up less stage space than that, and give a better punch with the larger diameter.

    I've started to think if you are trying to save space losing depth is a better compromise on the sound than losing diameter. Of course a Jungle will sound better than a "flats" so there are limits too.

    That being said love my jungle kit - and lust after the 3007 jungle too.

    Here is my Yamaha Hipgig jr. out at play. It is a great kit but doesn't get used now that I have the Fibes mini kit.

    I love the looks of these compact kits but I'm not sure if the sound is for me.

    you wouldn't believe how versatile a 16x16 kick is! It's all about the depth, and tuned correctly, that little kick is a cannon.

    I drove a 10/11 piece horn band with one of the first gen Jungle kits. A B52 mic in front of the kick was all it took. The toms and standard snare mic up normally. Pure fire! and so much fun to play. The guys in the band were skeptical at first, not after the first set. Never fear the lack of power of a 16" kick.

    That said, I'm really enjoying the sub sonic whoomph of my 24 these days with a rock band.

    That's my 18x16 floor with wood hoops and claws. The gullwing style spurs from my 60s kit worked perfectly in the floor tom leg mounts! The wider ones put it really low and the closer pair put it up where it's perfect with my little Danmar riser. The 16x16 floor tom is on the other side of the room with a 24x14 bass drum and 13x9 rack tom.
    And here's my little Rogers 12-14-20.
