A full drum kit is a pretty big investment, especially when you start getting into more professional-level equipment. While many drums come with basic carrying cases, others don’t—and even the ones that do are rarely the best design for protecting the drums against damage.

That’s where a set of quality drum cases can come into play, like this set from Gearlux. It’s a five bag set, with a size for every drum in a typical kit. All of these bags are made with the same basic design, with a secure and high-quality zipper closure and thick foam padding all around that keeps the drums safe during transport. The bags are also labeled on the outside so it’s easy to see at a glance which one is which.

The only warning we’d give about this set is that they’re pretty snug and won’t be able to accommodate drums larger than the sizes listed. If you don’t know exactly what sizes the drums in the player’s kit are, you’ll need to find out this information before you buy the cases to make sure they’ll be able to use them. On the other hand, this keeps the drums from sliding around inside the case, which can help keep them from getting damaged. As long as the size is right, the snug fit is a good thing.

The quality level is high on these drum bags. The stitching is secure throughout and they’re not likely to rip, tear, or break, even after heavy use. The sewn-in handles are a nice touch, and are equally secure in terms of the stitching, making it a lot easier to load and unload your equipment. While $100 might seem a bit steep for a carrying case, it’s a fantastic value when you consider how many different cases you get all at once.

  • Total bags: 5
  • Bag sizes: 12” (tom), 13” (tom), 14” (snare), 16” (floor tom), 22” (bass drum)
  • Materials: Heavy-duty nylon with 10mm foam
