  • Drum Temerature

    I have recently come under a storage crisis for my A's. I need to rent a public storage unit for my drums and I don't know if I should rent a climate controlled unit or not. I live in Chicago and gig weekly. Everything is in cases. What is a safe temperatute so that all of my gear won't be destroyed? I also have PA equipment as well as my amp for my E's. Someone help me please!

    Don't skimp, get a climate controlled storage facility for your a's! Best temperature for storing them is at between 70 and 80 degrees, and best have a dehumidifier running in case the room is a little on the damp side, otherwise you could encounter ply separation and horrible stains on cymbals and hardware.

      Temperature extremes and humidity = death to acoustics.

      'I only ever quote myself - except when I quote someone else' - me

      , plenty of , and , , triggered acoustics, , and a plethora of PA blah blah freakin blah...I mean does anyone care about the specifics of pedals, speakers, processors, hardware or anything that I'm using?? :confused: Hmmm, maybe this is an appropriate place to mention that I tried out a new cymbal stand the other day...

        Thanks for the assurance, guys. I think I knew it all along, but I needed some outside influence. Thanks even more for ignoring my terrible spelling! Happy New Year everyone! Happy drumming!
