Default Hard Cases

Hy there guys. I want to buy some cases for my drums because I'm not satisfied by the protection offered by bags. I want to choose between Hardcase and Stagg cases. Has anyone used cases from any of these two brands? Which one is better? Thank you.

I use Humes and Berg Enduro cases with bags. Double the fun. Ive used some Hardcase in the past. They are excellent quality.

I use Hardcases, and I have no bad things to say about them.

I've used Humes & Berg Enduro cases for years without any problems.

I never have worry about my stuff in them, the clips are heavy duty, the handles are nice & sturdy, and they're priced fair.

I don't have the foam inside of these, but I did in most of the H&B Vulcanized Fiber cases I had a long time ago.

The foam didn't seem to make any difference as far as extra 'protection', so I went with the standard case.

While I use Hardcases for my drums, I use and H and B Enduro case for my cymbals. I've put the case through lots of use for the past 12 years and it has held up very well.

I have seen the Stagg cases and the look as good as the Hardcases. However, Hardcases are made in England. Whenever possible, I like to avoid buying Asian stuff and I prefer buying North American/European/Australian stuff because of the environmental and human factors involved.

I have a H&B Enduro square 22" cymbal case too.

I've had it for...geeze...years, and it's mine's held up great too.

Really nice case, and it's easy to get the cymbals in and out of and put the lid on and off.

If they made a 24" Enduro square case, I'd have one.
I have a H&B Vulc round-ish 24 case, but it's a pain getting the top off and on, so I use a bag since my ride is a 24.

Hey guys.
Sorry to bring up an old thread but I have a quick question about Hardcase Drum cases.

I'm looking at buying a set and I notice that there is no padding on the inside of the cases other than the little strips of foam to hold the drum in place.

My question is - When the drum is placed inside the case, does it rub on the sides and blemish the drum hardware at all?

NO.

I own two Hardcase snare cases, and the beauty of them is that the padding sits directly on the rim and once the straps are pulled tight, it's locked in for good. No lateral movement at all as far as I can tell (unlike the Ragone cases my kit is in, they roll around a bit). Great cases....buy with confidence.

Thank you very much good sir.

I have the Enduro drum cases (for years, with no foam) and there's no marking/rubbing on the hardware or drum with these cases either.

Have fun with your new cases!
