Ok friends.
Need your opinion on a 14x18 floor tom.

Any thoughts?

For use in the studio. Live.

Pop. Rock. Etc.

What’s your experience with it. Do you prefer it over 16x18 etc

Do you have a link to the floor tom in question? I could not find it. I was able to find some 14x18 DW bass drums.... or other depths of 18" floor toms...

I had (technically still "have") a 16x18 floor tom. I did not like it that much. I drilled holes for spurs and a tom mount, put wooden hoops on it, and now it is the 16x18 bass drum for my bebop kit. And in that role I like it a lot.

I have played on a few kits that had 18" floor toms, but almost always they were a 'second floor tom' - set up to the right of a smaller 16" floor tom. Which was cool. But by itself, as my only floor tom, I did not care for it. It seems kind of limited/limiting.

depth hardly matters unless you put it next to an overly deep second floor tom: i'd expect somewhat different sustain then...

Maybe consider a "floor tom" like the one Virgil is using on his left here. Go to 21:23 near the end of the video:
