I recently bought a Ludwig kit with a 20x22 kick. I had a hard time finding a case to fit. I ended up getting an SKB hard case. It was expensive, but it's padded on the inside and very durable. http://accessories.musiciansfriend.c...ase?sku=540077

I have Tuxedo bags for my Yamaha set. They seem to have extra room which is what I needed for the YESS mounting system. You can call Steve Weiss and they will tell you if it will fit. That's what I did.

I had an old beato soft case that was designed for a 18X22 kick but the 20X22 fit in there fine, id imagine a hard case would work as well you would just have to loosen the strap's a tad

That's EASY to fix. Get the kicks cut down to a normal 14 inch depth, THEN they'll fit!!! :D

The saturn's leg spurs are a real bitch to get into a bag designed to fit the size of the drum. If you can find one larger, purchase it at once. I always had a hell of a time with my 22X18 when gigging with it.

+1

I had a hard time finding a 14" case that would house my DW floor tom. The leg brackets were just too big to fit in any 14" cases. Then, I found a 14" SKB FLOOR TOM case, which is different than the "regular" 14" tom case, and has a little extra diameter, and it worked perfectly. You can talk with SKB, and they can custom make you a case to your specs. Just go to their website...it has all the info to get in touch with them.

My Tama set has a 22x20 bass drum and I use the Protection Racket with the wool inside or whatever it is (soft cases). Fits perfect.

Please drop me a line if you're still looking. We do PR cases every day and I know what brands fit by default and which do not. That's why it's always a good idea to always buy from a drumshop where you can get expert help.

For Saturns, you need to buy one size UP in diameter for BDs and FTs. For example, for a 22x20....buy a 24x20 PR case. For the toms, make sure you buy the RIMS model PR cases. It'll have a "R" in the model number.

Check out our video too. Thanks!

24" too baggy, too baggy for what? The 24 would have been a breeze to put the drum in. Now, your sentenced to eternal struggle with a tight bag, doesn't make sense to me.

A baggy bag has benefits, the main one being ease of use. Its pretty crazy to struggle with tight drum bags, which also increase your chances of scratching the drums finish when taking on/off.

There's no written law that says your bags need to fit tight. Also no scientific proof a tight-bag is better at protecting drums, they actually offer 'less' protection. More padding is what you want, not less.

What kind of tama kit is it? Cause I just bought a Superstar Hyperdrive and the spurs on 'em are pretty beefy.
