Any advice on specific drum sound

Hy evbd) Everyone's timbre-trained ears are welcome) Been stuck for a while with finding an instrument to provide sound from attachment. Guess it can be something relatively small and high tuned somehow...Any ideas how to get this kick in real world? Don't wanna to go into samples in the first place...the plan is oldschool - find a good drummer and give him a proper sounding instrument to play)

Sounds like two heads. Also sounds like more than one microphone. There may be a room microphone going on there. If so, probably all the mics on that kit are part of this sound; the kick isn't solo'd. Or maybe the outside head is creating that part of the sound. My guess is that this drum is a 22. Maybe a 24. Probably not a small drum. Medium to medium large. The batter head sounds thicker than an Ambassador. Probably a two ply with built in muffling like a Powerstroke or Emad. It's hard to really know this kind of stuff for sure, but that's where I'd start. The finish is definitely red sparkle, though.

Many thanks, amazingly helpful! Although I synthesized it with modo drum, using 18 x 16 kick with the batter had tuned all over the top...And some samples in superior drummer sounds like this with the same size. Maybe it could be 20 or 22 tuned high, especially with 2 ply head-agree...

P.S. But red sparkle - that's for sure))

Look at that. You actually said it's a sample in your first post. Sorry I missed that. It doesn't sound like a high tuning to me. It doesn't sound low either. What have you got for a kick right now?

I have some no name 18 x 16 kick with Remo Coated Ambassador and resonant head with a hole cut....but for now I guess, for this sound and this size it should be all solid.

That's definitely a small drum. But just start messing around with tuning and muffling and miking. Then try a thicker batter side head. Then try different drums.

Try to put floor tom horizontally.

There's A LOT of room sound going on in your posted sound. I think we're hearing some sympathetic ringing from toms, or that outside heads is kind high, and tuned up from the batter head.
