I've got 6 of their Deluxe 24" Cymbal bags. Great bags, wouldn't buy anything else.

Too bad I can never get a straight answer on whether or not some of their more obscure cases are still made. Take, for instance, the timbale case....it's elusive...no one knows if it's still around. Not even PR knows where to get one.

Congratulations from all at Guru. We offer AAA rigid cases as standard with all our drums, for one simple reason, they make sense. Rigid enough to handle all but a 2 x 18" sub dropping on them from 15ft, yet much kinder to car interiors, & lighter than all traditional hard cases. Just about the only environment I wouldn't use them is big truck touring logistics, but if you're doing that, you should be in flight cases for everything anyhow. I also love the fleece interior from a drum protection pov.

Only issue is availability. We have to order them 4 months in advance, & that's a PITA from our customer service POV. That said, the PR staff are great, & we mostly work through it.

Here's a photo of our trailer loaded up ready for a show. There's probably more than 40 AAA cases in there, as well as numerous heavy duty cymbal bags (the best out there) & hardware bags on wheels :)
