I love the idea, but I think that kit is pretty much guaranteed to pick up a few scratches each and every trip.
That reminds me of when I was in a band with two drummers. Coincidentally, we had identical kits, Lyra white marine pearl. I moved mine in hard cases while he used to back a trailer up to the back door and literally
throw them in. Needless to say, when we broke up his set didn't exist anymore and mine lasted another ten years till I sold it.
