Default How cool is this?

It's nice to discover I can get the 16x28 bass drum (with old-style T-handle tension rods) into the back of the new truck! Very cool that I don't have to get a case for it now. In fact, I can get the entire 4-piece kit with hardware and cymbals, into the back seat of the quad cab!


Consequently, the second shot is what it looks like with the 14x22 in there. It's like transporting a bop kit ;)

Extended cab pickups, the only way to roll.

I have a buddy who's 6'5", and he sits ultra comfortably, with room to spare, in the rear of my Crew-Max Tundra.

I could put the largest bass drum into the back of my Forester if I strap the kids to the roof.

Iím surprised you donít have bags for those drums.

I have a Mini Cooper and I can fit my 22/16/14/12 and snare (with hardware and cymbals). Of course, I'll be driving by myself. :)

Thereís speakers in the front and in the back, so it still sounds great.

Iíve been using Enduro cases for most of my career because Iíve always had some kind of open bed pickup. This is the first time I have a truck and can still get the kit inside. So not using cases at all is a luxury. Itís so nice to just pull up to a venue and just unload without having to case or uncase anything. Especially since itís just me moving my stuff these days. I may consider bags for the rest later (I do keep the snare in a bag) but Iím liking the simplicity.

I like bags because it makes the drums easier to carry while offering at least some protection aginst the inevitable bumps and bruises.

Youíd be surprised how many bumps and bruises it takes to cause real bumps and bruises ;)

That’s a big backseat to fit a 28” kick! Our family isn’t blessed with the luxury of owning a pickup, so one of the reasons that I went with a 20” kick is since it’s easier to fit in the backseat of a sedan.

Trust me, I've had my share of small cars when I was younger. If I ever move to Europe then I'll consider a small car again. But right now I'm living large ;)

1. Trucks are cool.

2. Is OP gigging a 28"? OP is cool.

As of now, I will be using the 28" for everything I get called for. Last nights gig didn't count as the stage wasn't big enough. But all new projects I'm involved with here on out will get the 28" and all new venues will have to accommodate me. So if someone needs a band to fit into a 8' wide space, it won't involve me ;)

I note very low popularity of station wagons (estate cars) in NA. Still the most flexible, space efficient, & economical drum haul option in countries where drums in the back of open trucks isn't a viable option.

Crew cab open trucks aren't a practical option here, partly down to the horrendous fuel consumption aligned to our fuel prices.

I once owned an old Porsche 944 and just about squeezed my kit in but I couldn't get my 20" bass drum in with the case on. Even without the case it was so tight sliding it into the back I scratched some of the finish on the hoops. That's when I knew I had to get rid of the car.

Your situation is different but I think it could end in tears if you transport that naked 28" and have to do an emergency stop. At least wrap it in a towel.

None of my kits can be considered mint condition anymore, but I'd never bring them to a gig without bags. So much easier to handle.
