Bass drums are like boobs....

smaller than 18" = A cups; with the right other parts, these can be acceptable and fun to play with...but let's face it, you are probably not going to make these your one and only.

20" = B cups; these can be enough in alot of cases, but you will often times find yourself thinking you need something a little bigger sometimes.

22" = C cups; big enough for fun, small enough to go wherever you want them to go, like home to meet mom and dad. You can live with these for life and be very happy.

24" = D cups; on rare occasions they can be TOO big, but not usually. They will get you alot of comments and compliments. Some will be jealous and start thinking they want some.

26" = DD cups; bigger than that and you are probably looking at fakes that are there mostly for looks not function.

Last but not least...the 23"...

23" = the alleged 'perfect' size; very rare and hard to find. you will probably see them on the internet or on stage, but you will never have them for yourself.

Steve wanted 20 inch kicks in his new kit, but for who knows what reason didn't get them, and I seem to remember seeing the orchard with a 20" kick a while back. Seem to be popular for death metal, maybe? I'm not a drummer, of course, but what about a 21"? That seems to me to be some sort of perfect in between. Kinda like somewhere between b and c cup. Perfect for some people anyway. haha

Steve didn't get 20" kicks because he got an Export Custom.  Pearl discontinued this line after the first year of production so he probably got stuck with whatever they had left in stock.

personally, i like to keep my options open, my right is a 22" and left is a 20". you get a kinda different sound outta this.  i like to keep a flat, leathery sound, and this combo works pefect.  hey chad, i like your theory, it was thought provoking.

Does the depth of the bass drum come into play here?  Like a 22x18 vs. a 22x16?

That's a 40x16 bass drum...and it's actually just there for show.  There's a 24x16 bass drum set up behind the big beast.  You could never play a 40x16 efficiently...there'd be zero response.
