  • Killer Cases~!!

    Where do I get these things??

    The answer is on the news page. Right after entering this site. The cases are custom made.

      How much time does it take you to set up? I leave my VCustom fully assembled with the pads attached and with the wires tywraped neatly on the tube frame, and it still takes 45 minutes to set the drums up with connections to my PA and the bands PA and then sound check them. I am fortunate enough to have a small trailer for the band that can hold the whole thing in a fully setup state. If I had to set up each pad and then have to positon each one it seems to me that you would have to get to the gig 80 minutes before start time just to setup. I can only see having cases if you are shipping these on a jet to your next gig.
      Just my two cents...

        As I noted in another topic recently, I keep all clamps and cables on the rack, which is folded up. I remove all pads and the brain, but it only takes me about 15 minutes to attach and plug everything in. Only the cymbal arms are collapsed for compactness and have to be readjusted. Add mixer connection and sound check time to that! But sound checks should be fairly consistent and quick with V-drums, esp. when compared to miked acoustics! $^)

          [b] Yeah I hear ya.. I do play out doors alot, We travel quite a bit. These would be perfect for me. Does any one know where to get them? Or does the hard case made by ROLAND have enough space for a full pro kit?

            Jim Mergard sent us photos of his custom build v-drum case. This case was built by Keal Case in Round Rock Texas.

              The roland case has room for all the pads and the brain. It also comes with a bag for the rack and cymbal arms

                Yea, I have the Roland case. It's good, but it's kinda hard to leave the cymbal arms on if you actually want to be able to zip the bag completely closed. It's better than nothing, but the custom cases look great! I'm sure they cost a lot more than the Roland tho! Also, there isn't a whole lot of room in the cases for anything but the basic V-Pro kit. I use double pedals and I put my snare stand and a couple of cymbal arms and that's it. I like the idea of the custom cases, because it looks like the load is broken down into a couple of cases. The Roland case gets pretty heavy when it's fully loaded. Funny.....they don't LOOK that heavy!!
