Pearl Icon straight rack - proper hardware bag to protect it for transporting?
I've just upgraded to a reference pure kit with no bass drum mount, and I already have a lot of cymbals in my setup, so I am picking up the icon rack. Anybody have experience with frequently transporting their rack?
Mine will be in a large van full of all of the gear for a 5 piece band and I want to make sure the rack is as protected as possible. Not sure what the best options are going to be as far as what the size of it will end up being when it is collapsed. I was thinking of getting a dedicated hardware bag for the rack itself with all of the clamps staying on it, and all tom and boom arms, snare and hi hat stands will stay in my current hardware bag.
