i think 10 since the stock availbility of replacement skin for it is much better than the 8's.. :wink:..just my opinion

Sound-wise and appearance-wise, a 10" tom would blend in better with your existing set of toms.

Since you have 12, 13 and 16 toms I would also recommend a 10".  An 8" is nice but its pitch is too high from your next tom which is a 12".  If your smallest tom is a 10", an 8" tom would be appropriate.

why better? :?

Personally I prefer the 13's for 2 reasons..I like the tone being close to the 12 and find it odd enough to be distinguishable; and 2..it saves me money when I buy pre-packs  :-D

So I guess if they were together it would be better? :?

I am just worried because I play with my ride on the right mount of the base drum (in between the left rack tom and the floor) so if I add 2 more toms on the left side I'm worried my hi-hat would be too far away  :| unless I do it like Neil Peart style where the toms are progressively going higher towards the left  :roll:(which I doubt I could play comfortably :|)

more inputs please.. :-D

well the reason y 14 would be better than the 13 is because....

10 and 12 has a  2 inch difference... meaning it has a wider tone difference....

lets say you tune the 10" at A and the 12" at C and the 13" would be D.. but if that was 14, that would be E

2 whole steps apart from each tom... you can distinguish tom pitches and tones more effectively...

and also the 16" floor is 2 inches bigger than the 14" 

pero kung may makukuha kang 11" na tom.. e di ayus... hehe... 11" 12" 13" 16" :D

A 10" tom is so practical. If you get the 8" youre gonna have problems regarding the drumhead (like jp said) and you would want to replace it w/ a 1o :lol:

thanks for the tip bro.. :lol:

my worry lang if I get both 8" 10" tom is my hi-hat position might be too far from my snare since I set up my kit with the ride on the right side of the left tom mounted on the bass drum.. :? So it would turn out na 3 toms on top kaya baka malayo na masyado yun snare..what you think..?

ok yan fernando ah..mura plus with the pinstrip set up  :-D but I have my eye on a pair of export expansion toms  :lol:

yun din una kong concern di ko malaman pano ko ippuwesto yung 8 at ung 10... kung yung 10 lang ok lang eh pero both 10 and 8 mejo lalayo yung hi-hat ko, kaya nag compromise ako sa ride,

ganto cya before the toms:


ganto na cya ngayon:


all fernando hehehe, cant afford ako sa ngayon ng mga high end eh...

OT: peeves kelan natin lalagyan ng reso tong mga toms hehehe

ako rin gusto ko malapit yung ride, parang pareho kami ni g0d5_g1ft pero nasa right side parin ng bass drum yung ride, napush backward/leftward yung hihat, tapos nagaral ako ng open hand playing. kaya yun ok na hehehe di namahihirapan unlike cross stick playing.
