    Default drum bags and hardware bag.

    My question is a bout a harware bag. I have 9cymbal stands 2 boom arms on clamps and two pearl arms HH stand 4 mutli clamps and snare stand. My question is what size hardware bag should I get for all of this? The size I was looking at is 48X16X14 is this too big?
    Any thoughts would be great thanks

    9 cymbals stands take up lots of room in a bag ,,, i dont think 16x14 is big enough.

    If you're wondering about the Ahead Armor Ogio Engineered Hardware Sled with Wheels at 48" x 16" x 14" to hold 9 cymbal stands 2 boom arms on clamps and two pearl arms HH stand 4 mutli clamps and snare stand? That load could end up being too heavy for just one person? I've loaded 7 cymbal stands in a hardware bag with no wheels and it weighed a ton.



    As advertised. This guy looks like he could be pushing 200 lbs? Again, you can probably stuff it all in but it may be heavy?

    I have a large heavy duty plastic storage locker that I bought at Wal Mart for $20. It has a hinged lockable lid and handles and is designed to fit in the trunk of your car, SUV, truck, etc.. (Not one of those cheap Tupperware totes). Looks like a massive plastic tool box. It can hold all 3 cymbal stands and booms, snare stand, Tom mounts, throne, tools, supplies......basically everything except the hi-hat stand, cymbals and toms. It's heavy when fully loaded and requires 2 people to carry it efficiently, but it's a TON easier to make 1 trip as opposed to 5 when loading for a gig. For $20, it's effective and hard to beat. So far, it's held up just fine.

    Eh, I have ten stands plus a multitude of clamps - I use two hard shell golf bag flight cases. Search your local classifieds or Craigslist, you can usually get them for 30-70 bucks depending on type and condition. I scored an SKB golf bag case for $40!

    The Walmart lockbox thing sounds interesting though - I just bought a cart to load the shells on, so having a square case may be in the future...

    edit - forgot to mention - use two bags! My two totally loaded are still incredibly heavy. Trying to fit it all in one while it can be accomplished, will cause you to hurt yourself!

    I carried 4 heavy stands plus snare stand, hihat, and stool until i recently stopped using one of the cymbal stand.

    That was heaaavvvyyyy for me (a 21 year old, average fitness guy) to lift into a car, so 9 would be killer.

    As has been suggested, split it into a couple of bags (or get a rack-even though im not a fan of racks) and you'll be much better off

    I would also recommend getting at least 2 hardware bags. I have a bag for my rack, and that sucker is definitely heavy (no wheels), and then I have a hardware bag that is attached to a dolly type of cart. Getting that one is is a breeze. I also have a Rock N Roller cart. It's all about saving my back.

    its really not my biz, but , do you really need 13 cymbals ? are the stages that your playing on big enough to use a set this big ? that seems like a pretty big set to haul around for a local gigging drummer.

    Tom, I remember when I started playing, and had the 6 piece. Back then, I couldn't imagine playing a 4 piece. Fast forward to today, and it's a lot easier to get that 4 piece into the car, and setup is easier. No body cares that the kit is smaller, or that I have fewer cymbals.

    And yep, you guys called it a long time ago!

    Here's the proof:

    Only 9 cymbals. If I do an hour or longer set I would like to use my whole set. If not I will only use abot a 5 piece with 2-3 crash cymbals and ride and Hats.
