Re: How do you pack your kit?
I've come to the conclusion that cases are a waste of my time and an extra storage hassle.
Cases 'are' an extra storage hassle, a good padded bag set not so much.
Going naked has its problems tho, if its raining/snowing you could be doing a lot of work wiping the drums/hardware dry. You're also flashing your stuff to people, people that might want it.
Its easier to carry the stuff in bags IMO. All my bags are one size over for quick/easy on and off, the benefits easily outweigh the negatives, the only one of which might be storage at the gig and w/bags its usually easy to find storage space, cases not as easy.
