    Birch, maple, mahogany, and several others are all great for recording, live, whatever, just different tones. Mahogany will be the deepest/mellowest and maple or bubinga (expensive) are usually the brightest, not sure where birch falls. Since it'd be a very low pitched drum (I'm guessing you'll get one bigger than your current one?) it might be cool to get maple for clarity, but really you can't go wrong with any good drum. Drums get a lot less of their tone from their woods than guitars do (just like an electric gets less tone from it's wood than an accoustic does), but it does make a decent difference for sure.

    Yeah, I'd probably go for a 16 inch depth with an 18 diameter, and I have a 16x16 right now.

    This one looks decent, and fairly inexpensive which is my main objective.

    Yup, looks good. Too bad you're not in Canada, the store I work for would probably have some killer stuff for you, but we don't ship to the US.

    I personally feel that this message board, Jacurutu, is full of hateful folks who don't know
    how to fully interact with people.
