Honestly, the drum shell is going to be fine with either one... The heads and hardware are what makes a drum, in my opinion (obviously not in all cases, but for a JH/HS, most likely). Most new concert bass drums will have heads that are just fine, but the stand and mounting type will vary. If you can, I would say go for the field frame, and go for the Pearl field frame vs. the Ludwig. I currently have an old (80's era Ludwig) concert bass drum shell that I replaced all the hoops, claws, tension rods, and heads on and put it on a pearl field frame. Sounds great and was half the cost of buying a new drum and stand together. |
