    I usually play 1 up 2 down using a 12, 14, 16 combination and this works well for me. But, there are times when I will drop the 14 FT and go 12 to 16 and this also works well for me. I tend to tune my rack tom medium to low pitch as this is what suits the drum/head best to my ears. The 14 FT is a good drum but is far more picky about its preferred tuning and is why I drop that if I'm going to go 1 up 1 down. I typically play rock styles so this will also have a bearing on my choices.

    Mine's more of an 11, 18 22, the old Premiers have some slightly off measurements...

    The point on the progression is an interesting one, and why I believe 1 up 1 down is harder to play for lower level players like myself.

    Sure, you can do linear fills, but unlike say a 5 piece, it can sound a bit strange depending on the song and the result is you have to think about how you move between the drums a lot more. Rudiments become even more helpful to know and I find myself starting fills more on the FT, and I tend to play the snare in between the two toms more than i might otherwise. This is totally fine as Mitch Mitchell is my favorite drummer and he did this all the time

    I run 2 up for most gigs, but when I shoot YT videos, I use just whatever I need and end up 1/1 quite a lot. I will either go 10/14 or 12/16. I've never really liked 12/14, even for jazz. Lately I've been playing with the Benny Greb type 10/16 and I really like it. I just got an 8, so 8/12/16 is in my future.

    Edit - the 8/12/16 was a bust. The size difference between the 8 and 12 is so huge that it's hard to get the drum reasonably lined up. Oh well.

I don't quite have enough large classic lugs yet to complete the full kit, but the 12x8 toms used small classic lugs. If I use the 12" and steal the lugs off the two 13x9's, I can assemble the kick and floor tom. Not as true to "vintage" design, but it may be a nice mix of modern sizes with vintage shell sound. Eventually I can find some more large lugs and then add a 13" to the mix.

    I was using a 12 and 14 but it just didn't feel complete... so I added a 16 and I love it much better.
