    This looks cheap to you?

    No offense, but kinda! It's all personal preference I guess but I don't like shallow kicks because they do look cheap. They may sound great I don't know.

    I totally disagree. I think it's super cool, and it's very classy. Sort of an homage to the super short, but very large bass drums from the 40's

    They do look vintage. And that is a nice looking kit. The drum fact is that it takes all different sizes to make all different sounds. Circumference and depth. They all have their place in the drum community. Would I play that kit? Heck yeah! I'd imagine that bass drum could make a pretty nice thump!

    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.
