I think the modern soft cases are better than those old fiberboard hard cases. No, I KNOW they are, because I own both.

Protection Racket is my favorite, but there are several similar with a tough coudura exterior and a wooly interior with foam in between. Toss them in the car like cord wood and the drums come out fine. Nothing like the old fabric "soft" cases which really only protect from dust and sunlight only.

I'm always keeping my eyes peeled for P.R. brand cases for cheap but that doesn't happen often...

Note a lot of these modern cases allow room for a RIMS mount, so you may need to size down for a virgin tom or one with a rail clip only. Best to always test fit first.

Well, if you want a hard case, SKB is making nice stuff, but it’s expensive.

Those gator bags are good. I think my 14” ft case is a gator. Maybe it’s Cases brand. But P. R. Is still the top of these type cases to me.

The ultimate would be Pelican, but the cases can cost as much as the drum... used pelican is not too bad but expect to pay $100 for a 12” Tom Case.

Cool Re: Drum Case's

Wasn`t there an issue with Gator bags a few years back? I remember members stating that their drums inside the bags were going moldy and were starting to rust...It was like the bags wouldn`t allow the drum to breathe...Maybe it was another brand...

Cheers

Long term storage?

Then plastic bag with a desdicant taped to the Batter head with blue painters tape. Put that inside the gator bag.

I don’t store drums in cases. My blue kit is in the original boxes (for the most part) and the others are out in the Drumgeon.
