Default Good Cases.

I'm looking to buy some cases but I really don't want to spend a WHOLE lot of money. I'm not up on case manufacturers and prices and such. I need some hard cases that are just well made. Any suggestions.

If you want good quality cases (SKB, Hardcase, Protection Racket, etc.), be prepared to spend 10 to 20 percent of the total cost of the drums, hardware and cymbals on cases. Expensive drums will be more cost-effective to encase, while you could spend more on good cases than drums if you have a CB700 set.

If you want some cheapo soft cases, those would work well if you just do gigging around town and you're transporting your own stuff.

well the SKB cases aren't too too expensive. i was just wondering if there were some less expensive hard cases.
soft cases could work. only problem is they're not waterproof and i have a pickup truck so if it WAS to rain while transporting gear, soft cases would be a problem.
