    Default stage custom birch 20 kick or a 22?

    Want to pose a question to all the stage custom guys out there, do you guys prefer a 20" or a 22 kick and why? Picking up one this weekend and I am torn on kick drum size

    I've played both, and i'd say get the 20. Better head response, nicer tone and thump and not too muddy sounding, i'd say thats the best all rounder and definitely my preference if I was buying the kit.
    Pearl, Natal, Ludwig, Tama, Slingerland, Premier Drums
    Zildjian, Sabian, Zyn Cymbals
    PEARL, LUDWIG, TAMA, YAMAHA, NATAL and DW Snares

    Roland, Dauz, FAT KAT and Koby Electronics, and loads of Percussion

    4 Kits and 8 Snares, and I still don't have enough!

    Which one would have the higher resale value?

    Is there a retailer near you that you can visit and compare the two options? If not, maybe buy a 20" and a 22" and swap them in and out depending on the music you plan to be playing. And, are you going to be gigging it regularly? If so, I'd definitely lean towards the 20" just for portability (provided it sounds decent).

    Is there a 26”? If so, go with that.

    Agreed, I had a silver sparkle oak custom at one time (miss that kit) and I had both the 20 and the 22 kick. The 20 was so punchy and had so much attack.

    Sounds like you’ve answered your own question!
