  • Cases for Vdrums - Specifically DTX950K

    Hello Everyone,

    I am new to the forum. I've been gigging with my dtx's but it has been difficult... I found one case (http://www.amazon.com/dp/B001SGR63O/..._M3T1_ST1_dp_1), a bag by Gator that fits everything but it is very difficult to lug around. I could use your help with suggestions or alternatives. I am on a budget... I don't necessarily need road cases, but casters as I get older will allow me to continue playing,

    Thanks in advance.

    Jim

    I use the same gator bag sand a generic hardware bag for my td30. There's a model that comes with wheels but I ended up buying a folding trolley that's strong enough to also handle amplifiers etc for the rest of the band.

      I have the gator bag with wheels but I haven't used it yet. I will report back later. I was thinking that a couple of smaller cases might make more sense than on big case.
      Equipment: TD-30KV, DW9000 hardware, ROC-N-SOC Throne, Behringer ULTRATONE K3000FX Amp, JBL EON 615 Powered Speaker, Yamaha MG06X. 1965 Ludwig Super Classic. Black diamond pearl. Zildjian K Custom Dark cymbals, DW 7000 hardware, DW 9000 kick pedal.

        Welcome to the forum!!! How about a nice intro in the FOYER section? Remember, the search engine is your friend! There have been all sorts of threads on cases for v drums and e drums. Bottom line, everyone kinda makes do with what they can, either converting tour cases with specific inserts, or using off the shelf stuff. I use a cargo bag with wheels on one end with a luggage handle that collapses into it, cost me around $100 I think at the time. It's long enough to transport things like hardware and mic stands. I just wrap my Roland shells and stack them inside. Local gigs only mind you. If I was traveling it would be hard cases or soft cases like for my A kit.

        My bands: Alter Ego, Arcanum
        E Kit = Roland TDW-20s kit // Roland SPD-S// Pearl Demon Drives//
        A Kit = Tama Swingstar 5 pc (1981) w/roto toms (orig owner!) //Zildjians
        A Kit = Natal 6 pc with Paiste 2000 & Zildjian/MidiKNights/DrumSplitters
