Still open to all possibilities. I’m not in a huge hurry. I’m just getting tired of leaving a concert band rehearsal, rushing 5 miles home, loading my drums into my car, driving five miles in a different direction, loading drums in, setting up, and being ready to play in 35-45 minutes. Once a week of this is enough. Gigs on top of this….
Don’t know what relatively inexpensive is for you, but, Oriollo makes seamless metal drum sets including aluminum drums that are very fairly priced, IMO!I'm getting really tired of loading in a full 22,13,16 kit to a weekly rehearsal and then loading it out again. Storing it there is impossible. I have a Gretsch Catalina Club 18,12,14 kit I keep stored at a weekly steakhouse gig. I'm looking for a small, lightweight, good quality, relatively inexpensive kit that sounds decent unmiked for rehearsals and can be loaded in/out easily. Suggestions/experiences much appreciated.
