    Unconventional (and cheaper) drum case options

    Just wondering what diy options you all have cooked up to safely transport your gear. Cases are so expensive and I am wondering if there are more economical and creative options to get gear to gigs and back?

    So excited about this find for hardware

    So hubby, son and I headed out to some thrift stores to try to find some economical options for transporting my son's drum set. My hubby found this gem for 35 dollars!! It is an old airline galley cart. The wheels are in great shape and the brake and release still work great. It seems to be...

    9.5 mm Tom mount

    I need to fly 3 Ludwig classic maple toms off of cymbal stands. I currently have a Gibraltar L rod tom holder with clamp. The L rod though is too big to fit into the suspension hoop’s clamp. My research indicates that I probably need a 9.5 mm L rod. I know I can buy a smaller L rod ball for...

    Upgrading kit for young drummer

    Once again, I come to you wise ones for help! I have an almost 14 year old son who has been playing for about 3 years. Suspecting he may not stay the course we bought him a very reasonably priced used beginner set: PDP Center Stage. As he became more serious and invested we took excellent...

    help me Christmas shop

    I am upgrading my son's very basic starter cymbals for Christmas. He initially wanted a relatively inexpensive Meinl HCS set that came with about a million different cymbals. We were able to talk him off of the ledge and get him the agree to fewer, but more quality cymbals. Thus far I have...

    mounting things to rack question

    Please pardon my ignorance. As you can see by my username, I am not a drummer but rather am trying to shop for my 13 yr old drummer son. I have 3 questions I hope you knowledgeable people can help me answer. First, my son's current set up has his toms mounting into holes in the top of his bass...
