    Default Accessories Case/Bag Advice

    Following a few changes in the bands I'm now playing in, I now only need to take my full kit to gigs with both rehearsal studios having at least the drums in place with me just adding in my own cymbals and other bits and pieces as necessary. Consequently, I'm looking for a better way to transport/carry the items I need for rehearsal without having to take my full hardware case; essentially looking to be able to travel light whilst still having everything I need. I'm looking for something not overly heavy but will still stand up to wear and tear. The idea is that I want to be able to carry all I need in by hand; one hand for my cymbal case and the other hand for all the other bits. The kind of things I'm looking for this bag/case to carry include:

    Tambourine and mounting bracket
    Cow bell and mounting bracket
    Stick bag (usual mid sized)
    Moon gel
    Various spares such as snare wire straps, kick pedal spring, hi-hat clutch, etc.
    A4 folder containing charts
    Drum keys

    I've come across a few options online such as this one from Hardcase but would welcome any input from those with experience of such things.

    I would go to a couple of hardware stores first to see what they have. You could end up saving quite a bit that way.

    Everyone loves FREE... like this free drum forum. But like your car and even your drums, they require upkeep and maintenance and that requires money.

    Will you consider Shopping at Drum Bum to help support this forum?

    Or make a donation here.

    I know from working with Drum Bum through the years, that this forum is costly to run. It requires server fees, hosting, ongoing moderation, advertising, software upgrades, security certificates and IT work when it breaks. All in addition to the expenses that come from running a business. These costs are offset (hopefully) by members that click through to Drum Bum to make a purchase now and then, if not make a contribution to help keep it running.

    On behalf of Drum Bum, thank you for your consideration.

    I carry more stuff than that in my pockets, LOL. Honestly, for no more than that, Id go to Walmart and pick up a travel or sports duffel bag.

    If you want a more professional look, (or even tactical), you could do a cheap water-tight, lockable case from Harbor Freight or another on-line retailer. Line it w/foam and it will be quiet and protective as well.

    "Too many crappy used drum stuff to list"

    Play the SONG......not the DRUMS!!!

    "I think that feeling is a lot more important than technique. It's all very well doing a triple paradiddle - but who's going to know you've done it? If you play technically you sound like everybody else. It's being original that counts." ~ John Bonham
