How to protect your percussion instruments during transportation?
For touring musicians and bands, the road holds many surprises. One of the surprises no musician wants to face is damage to musical instruments and equipment. Roadies have been known to be a little overzealous when loading, transporting and unloading equipment and instruments, but most of the damage to items within musical shipping cases is because of the poor quality of the cases. Drummers appreciate the benefits of protecting and storing their equipment and guitars more than any other musician. Cymbals, drums and hardware need to be transported safely. It is better to do this using shipping boxes developed by trusted manufacturers. Most top makers create shipping cases for various sizes of musical instruments and production equipment. Fortunately, it's very easy to find high quality cases and bags in today's music market. In fact, company like Bespeco and countless others create lightweight bags and cases that are more than capable of protecting your instruments.
Gig bag or case, what to choose?
Gig bags are designed for easy travels. They are made of lightweight waterproof material and often have external pockets. Transporting or storing components in a soft case makes it vulnerable. Although bags offer less protection, in some situations they are the best choice. Because they weigh less than hard cases and provide ample storage space for accessories, they are a great choice for short trips with less risk.
The cases have a hard shell. They are shaped to the size of the instrument and usually have small internal compartments for accessories. In some cases, there are also locks for added security. The flight case is built for touring bands and is the most protective case produced today. They are bulky and heavy, and should only be used by musicians who travel often by plane and don’t always have the time or energy to make sure their instrument is packed with care. Expensive cases made of plywood, vinyl, and aluminum, on the other hand, are great for touring but aren’t the right type of case to use when playing around town or storing your instrument at your house. If you're still unsure of your choice, it's better to choose a hard case. After all, it’s better to be safe than sorry.
A cover can be especially important for those living in humid climates, as humidity can damage the hardware. Dust and dirt get everywhere, including the moving parts of the mechanism. A good cover will protect your instrument from the weather, scratches, splashes, and dust, but it won't ruin the aesthetic of the room.
