Is this the best kit for gigs?

Or buskering? It has very minimal space to maintain, there are plenty of other YouTube vids. Check it out!

You can carry it literally in a duffel bag for your hardware and the already mentioned round bag. It is possible to add Tom's onto it. 2 bags Pearl compact Traveller kit.

Just picked one of these up and LOVE IT! So much that I'm selling my Manu Katche jr. kit (my old gigging kit). Tried using an x-hat with it, but I don't think I can live without a real hi hat stand.

I believe these were the muse for the Pearl compact Traveller kit:

depends on the gig but for non-club/ballroom gigs ive got a sonor player's kit that is incredible. 20x12, 10x7, 14x12. Ride cymbal goes right on the kick.

i just take the heads off and put all the drums inside each other and it's one trip from the car with the drums, one trip with hardware. and they look and sound fantastic with the right heads!

The pancake kits seem way overpriced to me.

"just take the heads off and put all the drums inside each other "

Doesn't this defeat the "grab and go" aspect of it though?

This is what I mean by small space. This lady has a nice style and the band sounds terrific!

Since the Ludwig breakbeats drumkit only comes with velvet bags ( better off to use them as mutes while throwing them over the drums like old t-shirts) I found some beato bags, 100$ for the whole set but bare bones, only a soft shell albeit better than the Ludwig ones. It is a step up, they are floating around there somewhere on the internet.

Ha! You guys are too prideful. No one is paying attention to the kit at all--except us! As long as there is a beat, no lay person would care. Anyway, for what it is, the pearl kit sounds pretty darn good...and my back is too old to haul out heavy gear any more. :tongue5: One trip to the car and you're dunzo.

I suppose you could make the case for busking but it just doesn't seem very inspiring or fun to play. And let's be honest, most of us are playing for the enjoyment of it. And no way that gets heard at all in a bar setting.

Not really sure I see the point. I had a Pearl Midtown that I thought was a great low-cost gig set, you can even buy a single bag to fit the entire kit into- and you can actually hear the bass drum!
