industry standard kick drum

We all know that the supraphonic is basically the industry standard snare - so is there an industry standard kick drum? A Pearl export 24"? A Ludwig 22" perhaps?

I'd say no - there are a lot of kicks that will work just fine for lots of things (but it also depends on the style of music).

For classic rock? Probably a lot of 20" Rogers or 3-ply Ludwig.. maybe Yamaha Recording custom?

Jazz? Gretsch

Modern rock? Steven slate samples.

95% agree, there occasionally is a rare gem that sparkles through and is completely natural, but unfortunately they are few and far between
