    probably be a better bass drum than a tom. reason i say this is because of the rim. bass drum setup is more forgiving on a bearing edge than a tom. only way to find out is to try.

    you might need some new hoops for it as well. if you leave the bass hoop on you might be doing rim shots all day

    its not the head or rims, its the bearing edge. its not going to sing or tune well for a tom, even if you tune it low. but dont let us stop you, for $20 i would probably try it too.

    if you do it let us know how its turn out and pics!
