Default Recommendations for a 24" Cymbal bag?!

I have recently bought some new Dream cymbals, which I love. The only problem, is that I now need a 24" cymbal bag or case.

Any recommendations?

Thats large and gorgeous I'm sure. If you are gigging with that bad boy I would suggest a hard case.

I have a cymbal bag from Modern Cymbal Case co, and it's been pretty nice for a few years now.
I don't know if they are still available though, as my preferred drum shop doesn't deal with them anymore.

Protection Racket and Humes and Berg have really nice protective cymbal bags.

I have a H&B Enuro square case for my cymbals up to 22", and that's a great case, but they don't offer it in 24".

I have the Vulcanized Fiber H&B case for 24's, but it's kind of a pain to use, so I only store cymbals in it.

As someone who always uses a 24" ride, I can say that (good, well made) bags are easy in use for that big of a ride, and offer protection of the cymbals.

Just get a good bag and don't "cheap out" on it.

In the long run, 20-30 bucks more for something great is worth it.

Those are good cases. Generally, you should expect the cost of cases (hard or soft) to run 10 to 20 percent of the cost of the instrument.

I would go with a hard case. I use a Humes and Berg Enduro. Soft cases are good until something terrible happens, like your cymbals fall out of a moving car or fall down steps. Especially a 24-inch cymbal is going to be more vulnerable to damage just because it weighs so much more.

I'm gonna check out that SKB case, thanks for the heads up.

I'd rather have a hard case.

The bag I have has been good for a few years now, but it's starting to show some wear.

I'd also suggest a hard case. I don't own one so I can't really review any. In my gigging experiences bags wear out, zippers break, holes develop.

It's ironic that a large cymbal would be more fragile than a small one. But imagine dropping an 8-inch splash on edge from three feet onto the cement. Now imagine dropping a 24-inch ride the same distance! I can see the splash making it with little or no damage but the ride getting a nasty dent.

Protection racket but what-ever you get, make sure it has dividers to protect your cymbals.

It would appear that Dream are actually just releasing two bags!

One standard and one deluxe.

I'm going to wait to see what they look like, then decide. Cheers for the tips so far.
