Making sure that your drums get from place to place in one piece is an important part of playing percussion - but don't forget about your hardware, too! It plays just as big a role as the instruments themselves in your setup, and it deserves the right hardware and trap cases, gig bags and covers to transport it in style. Here in this section, you can find cases and gig bags for all the major support gear that goes along with your drum set, and the benefits go beyond just keeping it in good shape in the car or van. These cases also make it a cinch to stay organized, so you won't have to spend as much time getting ready before a gig: just grab your pre-packed cases and go.
Naturally, the best cases, gig bags and covers for your hardware collection are going to depend on just what's in that collection in the first place. If you use a rack system, you might like the Gibraltar Basic Rack Bag. It's a top seller thanks to its generous space and easy-to-carry design. For large pieces of hardware or to pack multiple accessories in one bag, check out options such as the Ahead Armor Cases Ogio Engineered Hardware Sled with Wheels - since you can roll it around, it's super easy to move. And of course, you'll also find gig bags for individual components here, like the Gibraltar Double-Pedal Carry Bag.
If you're expecting your travel to take you to some demanding places - if you're flying or setting out on a cross-country tour, for instance - it's worth considering some hard-shelled trap cases as well. The Humes & Berg Enduro Companion Tilt-N-Pull Case is a good example. It's simple to roll around, just like the Ogio gig bag, but it also has a super-tough exterior shell that can stand up to just about anything. For your smaller items, consider the Protechtor Cases Super Compact and Super Ultra Compact Accessory Cases to get the same level of protection in a scaled-down package.
There's no place too remote to take your hardware and traps when you have a good collection of cases, gig bags and covers to safeguard them on the way - not to mention making it just plain easier to take them along. No matter what kind of percussion setup you play or where you plan to go with it, there are great choices here to get the job done... so go ahead and take a look!
