Default SKB Case Question

Hello All,

I'm wondering whether to get the 16 x 22 Bass Drum Case or 18 x 22 Bass Drum Case for my Yamaha Stage Custom 17 x 22 Bass Drum. Any recommendations from the group?

On my Humes&Berg non-lined Enduro cases, I manage to get my 16x22 into my 14x22 case. IT being the SKBs are lined, I would recommend the 18x22 to cover the size of your drum. The lining takes up a bit of space.

The 16 should have enough adjustment to work fine but if you get the 18 you will have enough room to store a complete set of spare heads in the bottom and then put a piece of foam or carpet underpad on top before putting your drum in.

I don't have a recommendation, however this may help you decide based on the tolerance between the case and the drum. I use a SKB 18x22 case for an 18x22 kick drum. there is between 1.25 and 1.5" of space between the edge of the hoop to the top edge of the case.

Your 17 x 22 will almost definitely fit the 16 x 22 case. I have SKB cases and they have a good bit of extra room. They can all fit drums a good bit deeper than they say (ex. My 5.5x14 case fits a 6.5x14 snare). The lining takes up very little room in the case and I do believe SKB accounted for that when they designed the cases.

You could just go to your local store and see if it fits in.
