lol, Of course I am over thinking it. I do that often. Reason might not stop me though. I am kind of between using a Pelican style case, (that could double as a suitcase for trips), and possibly something a bit smaller like an SKB 12 x 14 Marching Snare Drum Case. This should be big enough to fit the pedals side by side, beaters on, connecting arm off, and maybe a pillow to fill the void for bracing.
