Default How to find cases for my drums~

I don't know why this is so difficult, but I am desperate to find an affordable set of soft cases for my Gretsch Catalina Club Jazz kit. I feel like this is sort of a common size kit, 14'' x 18'' kick, 14'' x 14'' floor tom, 8'' x 12'' rack and 5'' x 14'' snare. Does anyone know of a set of cases for under $150 that would fit my drums?
Thanks

Not sure about cases for that price, but maybe bags. Do an ebay search for those Gator bags or something similar. There might be sets put together just for your sizes. A good SKB-like hardcase for my 18x20 bass drum costs about $150.

I am an SKB man, but Wolfpack makes some nice bags. They seem to be durable, well constructed and you could probably get a set with your budget.

For a budget like yours I would suggest Humes & Berg Galaxy bags.

Protection Racket bags.

No idea how much they cost in Yankee dollars....but don't scrimp on protection. You don't have to pay top dollar, but get something that will give your kit a fighting chance of being protected from everyday wear and tear.

Protection Racket is expensive but worth every penny.

If you need something affordable, though, I'd suggest Beato or Gator. These are surprisingly good for the money. As long as you personally move your drums and take care, these lower-end bags will do just fine.
