Re: SKB Hardshell Case sizes
Thanks for the responses so far.
Everything considered, for someone like me who will be playing no more than 4 shows a month, would I be better off getting the Gator drum and hardware bags instead of hardshell cases? Of course I realize I can't throw them around (not that I would with hardshells anyway), but at least it should prevent any scratching to the lacquer finish when transporting.
I know the bags (especially hardware bags) can rip when they're overloaded but at the lower price, I'd buy 2 for my 6 cymbal stands and hi-hat stand to disperse the weight.
Obviously the price is MUCH lower but so is the protection. Any thoughts on these?
