Default Marching Cases

I am planning to get a new kit in the future, and get some cases for it. I am probably going to get the Gretsch Catalina Club Jazz Kit. I could find standard cases for every drum but the bass. 14 X 18 is kind of an awkward size, but a found a marching case that would fit it. Is there any thing wrong with using a marching case for a normal bass drum? I mean, would the tom mount get in the way? Would it just be unhealthy for the bass drum? I know these are probably dumb questions (again...)
Thanks

The marching case will work.

Just curious, Do you really need hard cases?
They are expensive and unless you are touring with other people handling your drums a padded soft case will be just fine.
Also if you are to load the drums onto the back seat of a car the soft bags will not hurt the interior of the car.
The same applies to the wall and doorways in your house.

Good question, mind if I reflect that back at those more experienced? Do I need hard cases? I know I need cases, the one gig (outside of school - I was 15 so I was pretty hyped for it) I didn't have any and it was miserable. What is a good set of bags?

I've been using these bags for about two years now with no problems.
I gig twice a week. I have these bags for two of my kits.
