Is it worth it to buy enough hardware/cymbals etc.. to outfit multiple drum sets?

Good stuff!

My buddy who owns the Music Mill in my area hooks it up real nice for me. I should be able to get the Yamaha 700 series hardware (3 stands and HH stand) probably for under $200. Not a bad investment. And as everyone had mentioned, great for back ups/spare parts.

Now I just need more drums/snares and thrones.

I have four sets of drum hardware for 5 drum sets. 2 sets are set up in my teaching studio, one is packed and ready to go for gigging, and one more is on call for when I leave a kit at a theatre during a musical run.

Not a necessity, but convenient for sure.

Yes you should. For many years I have two complete giging sets. Both are full packed and ready to go. The only common item is my cymbals and cymbal bad. Denis

The ideal is certainly to run all the rehearsals at your house! Schlepping a kit to rehearsals is something I've thankfully put into the past.

You can always grab some super-cheap stands for rehearsal spaces, and having a spare bass pedal is a great idea because they don't break until the worst moment.
