That would depend on the drum- most of them are bigger than that. The ones I've used measured a hair over 23" to the outside of the bead. BUT- you could cut the top out leaving a 1/2" ledge all the way around, and the bowl should drop inside the bead, and sit nicely on the ledge. I'll have to consider that on my next build.......
