Re: What are the must haves for gigging?
In addition to the cymbal bag you should buy a hardware bag and drum bags for those beautiful new drums that you recently bought.
I use Galaxy brand bags because they are inexpensive and durable. I have been using them for years now. I own 25 Galaxy bags is assorted sizes. Not one of them has ever failed. Not even a zipper failure.
I use inexpensive 15" X 36" Gator soft hardware bags. I currently have 4 of them and none of them have failed.
I kind of like old drums:)
