I have two kits. The cheap set stays home and has mesh heads and low volume cymbals on it. It gets alot of use and doesn't annoy my wife. The Gretsch Cat Maple Kit and the Zildjians go everywhere I'm willing to take them. They are setup in my warehouse where I can play after hours and bother no one when they are not being played out. I also have a $150 dollar pawn shop special SPL kit to use at the jam house where the band practices and I rebuilt it and set up to be playable and sound as good as it can. I inherited it in pretty bad shape. All I do bring a snare and some cymbals.FWIW, I also play acoustic guitar and I never take out my Taylor 410e on any camping trips or outdoors activities. It's always the 20 year on Washburn for that!
I play guitar too and like you, I dont take my Martin HD28V out either. When its not being played its in its case. I do play it often, but it's the Seagull soild wood Spruce/Mahgoany that gets the abuse and the most playing time.
