Not a bad point. I might just haul them in and out occasionally because I want to play them desperatelyWhy not just continue playing the already barn-ruined kit at rehearsals and use your new drums on gigs? I wouldn’t leave my brand new gear (or any of my old gear for that matter) in any barn.
I am a relatively new drummer but have been in woodworking for a while. My experience is that temperature (and even worse humidity) negatively effect both solid wood and wood ply over time due to expansion and contraction, potentialy causing deformity and potentially cracking. And it also, in the case of drums, change the sound. Just my experience.The tama Start Classic is a nice set. Treat your baby well! Good luck!Hi y’all
I lurk here quite a lot and now I’m happy to say I have my first new kit on the way. As a gift to myself for getting my first job in my career field I splurged and got a Ludwig Classic maple pro beat 24 with Zildjian A’s (391).
my question is this. The last two years playing my buddies kit (Tama star classic) in his un-insulated, non-temperature controlled pole barn. We use a wood burning stove to heat it up in the winter when we’re out there playing. He is of the opinion that the drums will be fine. His star classic remains set up with no protection year round and he doesn’t notice any issues other than some dust. Is he right? I know instruments are finicky, especially when in environments with fluctuating temps and humidity. I want to know if I can leave my drums out there without worrying that they will be destroyed.
