    Not to break your chops, but why do people keep ordering kits with 18x16
    bass drums? They are such an antiquated 80s Power Tom era thing. The rest
    of the kit is set up with traditional sizes, then you have that kick. I'll
    bet that kit would sell 50X faster had it been ordered with an 18x14. Then
    again, Sonor lost touch with musicians years ago. They don't make a single
    traditional size in their Delite line. What morons. Sonor that is, not you
    guys at the Drum Shop! :)

  3. Rob,

    I prefer trad sizes myself, but not everybody in the world has the same
    taste you do, Rob. Look in any catalog and the first picture you'll see
    of ANY drumkit is one in "power" depths. Sonor is only following the
    rest of the industry.
