Re: 17-inch Diameter Bass Drum

Oh, I forgot to answer the question about the cost of the 17" heads. Offhand, I'm not sure but they didn't seem too expensive at the time. The drum came with a calfskin head, but I opted to not use...

Re: Wanted an 18" bass shell

Thanks for the suggestion, however, the Kellers are a bit pricey, and I would like a shell that already has lug holes drilled -- not that I'm lazy, but it would be easier.
