Seeker..a little more than the Tux, a lot better. I did a bag review of these a couple weeks ago.

The Galaxy bags are good inexpensive bags. Not as well-padded as the more deluxe (and costly) bags, but they work fine and are well-made.

One nice thing about them is they are available in a huge number of sizes. You can often get a 5-piece set of bags (rock or fusion) for $120 or so, then add whatever individual bags you may need.

If you are going to take the Absolutes out.. I would spend the extra few clams on either better bags or hard cases. You did not skimp on the drums - why skimp on the protection?

The lower end bags are a pain in the butt - they sag when you are trying to get the drums in and out, and provide very little real protection from dings and scrapes.

If I was going to take a >$2500 drum kit out to gig - I would spend the extra 50 bucks or whatever for Drumseekers, Protection Racket or something.

point well taken.I Guess i was hoping someone would say the Galaxy bags where a beast of a bag,and had all the protection i would ever need....I guess now its between the tuxedo or drumseekers.........

If you can afford the drumseekers get them, but for the money/protection the tuxedo bags are great. I just got them for my Gretsch Cat. Maple for under $200 from Steve Weiss. They are 15% thru the end of the month. The price is already taken off when you add them to your cart.

FYI, if you have suspension mounts on your toms Humes and Berg recommends getting the next size up. So if your tom is 12X9 get a 13X9.

I also got he company line, "buy one size up for suspension mounts". You don't have to. I've got Gretsch GTS mounts, which are fairly large mounts, and they fit fine (see pic below). They slip right in with the mount to either side of the hinge..no added stress on the zipper. I tried a 1" larger bag and it seemed way to loose, the drum was floppin' around in there.

Is it price that's keeping you from the Seeker? It's minimal..The 14X14 Seeker catalogs for $44, the Tux catalogs for $42, I got the Seeker from my dealer for $38. Also..I got the 18X22 for my bass (which is 18X22) and there is no problem fitting it. All the bags have plenty of extra room. The better reason to get the 18" is for when/if you get a 18X22.

Yes Wayne,to be honest,its the price.For instance The 18x22 theres a 32 dollar difference,the 16 is almost 20.00 iSteve Weiss tuxedo is 204...Seeker bags Memphis drum shop is 275.....And like i said its not like im going to use them at all my gigs ,just the chosen few.......But i see why they are a little more,they look REALLY NICE.....Im on the fence for sure

Just wanted to make sure a fellow drummer made a educated decision. I'm sure the Tux's will suit you well.
