I just picked up a Taye GoKit (see http://www.tayedrums.com/drum_sets/gokit/) . . . and they have two 14" Toms available for the set, either a rack tom or a floor tom.

The rack tom is 14" x 7", the floor tom is 14" x 11". For ease of moving, I'd rather have the rack tom, but am concerned it may not give me the same low end as the floor tom. Thoughts?? Opinions??

To put it simply, you're just not gonna get much low end out of a go kit in the first place.

I'd probably go for the floor tom.
