Re: Hardcase vs SKB
On the one hand I think hard cases for cymbals are a great idea. On the other hand, I hated the process of having to load in and load out cymbals from it. It's just too much of an event for me. I much prefer the Ahead Armor cymbal bag. But I move my stuff around myself. If other people are moving it and you're At the mercy of getting stuff into a truck, then either brand will be good.
Considering how paranoid folks are about the protection of their cymbals, I'm surprised more folks don't just special order a rolling anvil road case for them.
