  • Flight case for TD-20 Full setup

    Hi

    I haev had my Vdrum setup for the last year or so now... and i love every second i spend sitting behind them...so much fun...
    Now I'm ready to take it out of my bedroom and bring it on the road with me. The trouble is, I can't find anywhere where I can get my hands on a flight case or 2 that will protect my precious gear while it's thrown around by the roadies

    Have roland made anything like this? I think there are a few cases on ebay for the module alone, but Id like to get one for the pads and rack and cymbals as well!!!

    Thanks

    Hi

    I have the same problem, but for me a hardcase would take to much space at home standing around 95% of a year. Now I'm looking on something like this:

      I am looking for some flight cases for the set too. I am not too concerned about a case for the rack, but I do want them for the pads, module, cymbals, and some of the hardware. I have been searching google for "custom flight cases" and have found a few companies that will make them to your specs. Let me know if you find anything out about a good place to buy from and a good price. I will get back to you if I find anything...

      11pc. Pearl kit with custom marble swirl finish, and Sabian Cymbals.

        Any 'custom' made cases can / will work out expensive...... i just bought generic cases and with the help of some foam........... all fits in 2 of these...... Mackies sit on top for loading into gig...... then they are my speaker stands.

            I lug my TD20 kit back and forth from Maryland to Florida and back each year. There aren’t many case options for V-Drums other then custom ATI style cases. Roland makes a set of three soft cases which are OK, but clearly not roadie-proof. One case holds the pads and brain, the second the cymbals, and the third is a cheap bag for the rack and offers no protection at all.

            In the ‘80’ I bought a lot of cases for my AV company from Steve Burkey at Cabbage cases. He makes a great case and has a series made from PVC which is less expensive then ATI grade cases.

            Here is a link to his site that shows prices for his stock PVC cases.

              Ramsh is right. Go for an Electronic kit case from Protection Racket. Seriously heavy duty fabric, loads of padding and heavily padded dividers secured to the inside of the bag with velcro. I have the largest one - 36"x16"x16" and I can fit my TD12 module, 3x PD85s, 1x PD105, 2x CY12s, 1x CY15R, 1x CY14, the cable snake, mic and a stick bag too! You'll need the 16" x 16" large size so you can stand the larger CYs on their sides so everything is stacked sideways. If you put the TD12 in something harder, then an SPD-S will fit in instead.

              Highly recommended. I also recommend a Drum-tec hard flight case for your module - it's expensive and worthy of extra protection so the drum-tec case is probably worthwhile. You can find it on ebay from Germany. Padding inside is adjustable for both TD12 and TD20.

                Hi All,

                Another options is to use "Space Cases" - check out your local 4WD (SUV) accessories shop - in Australia somewhere like www.arb.com.au has these. They're made of strong plastic in various colours, are lightweight, have o-ring seals (waterproof and dustproof) and are lockable (with a padlock) - all you need to add is some foam padding and casters if you want wheels. Price is pretty reasonable compared to road cases too.

                    I had a set of custom 'flight cases' that the previous owner of my first kit had paid dearly to have made, (I think that the photos are still floating around the vdrums site somewhere). As an alternative, I purchased a set of luggage, (the 'nested' type with extendable handles, and wheels). The set has two wheeled bags with handles, and several smaller components, including what I think used to be called a 'vanity case' which is perfect for added protection for the module. They are sturdy enough to protect the triggers and module, and only need a few slabs of foam as dividers. I wrapped the foam in rough cloth and used velcro in the luggage to position it. Total cost for the luggage set: $12 at a surplus store. The larger case is also usable as a trap case for an a-kit, as it will hold most cymbal stands, etc.

                      That what I have, and it's fantastic. Sturdy, durable, looks cool.

                      BUT my friends, protection racket have informed me that as we speak they are road testing their first dedicated td-20 case. I have pictures but I think it would be unfair of me to post without permission.

                      I can however tell you that it:

                      1. Is on wheels
                      2. Has a retractable telescopic handle
                      3. Large outer pocket for auxiliary items
                      4. 13 x internal & fully adjustable compartments for pads/brain/cymbals
                      5. carrying handles that can be stowed away
                      6. Coffin style lid for easy entry & exit of pads
                      7. removable tray that sits on top of pad for rack
                      8. 48” L x 21” H x 16” W

                      Looks the dogs bollox and should be available September/October.

                      Happy days!

                              I've got a flight case at home from my older kit (TD-10). It's big though - when you open it, you can use it as a drumstage. Got a carpet on the side as well to prevent bassdrum and hi-hat from slipping. Depending where you're from, you can come pick it up if you like. It has wheels underneath too...

                              If interested, just drop me a PM.
