View Full Version : Good drum carrier/ harness...

08-24-2008, 06:52 PM
Hi my drumline has really crappy old Pearl harnesses that are just uncomfortable in every way. Were going to try to persuade our instructors to get new ones. Could I get some advice on fairly cheap ( at least below $200 each) drum carriers that don't have a bunch of things we wouldnt need? All we want is good comfort that is easy to march with. I dont care what brand it is either. Also our old harnesses didnt have a back bar going across. Is that helpful having one?

Oh yea and we need ones with the two rods that go up to hold the drum itself.
Is there any other info needed? Ive heard people talk about tension stuff or something.

well actually u almost have to use a certain brand cuz it depends on what your drums use to stay on the carrier. if their pearl drums more likely it'd be best to get the old j-bar carriers of theirs like you said or get the yamaha j-rod carriers cuz they should work to but you'd get an extra part for the attachment onto the yamaha drums.
