    Years ago, I framed out this SKB X1 case to transport the 14x14, 14x5, and 12x8 drums. It has worked really well for me. I got the idea from a video that was posted by the drummer of KONGOS. (https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=eBaKFtTlCzc)

    I don't know who has the better idea - I am still trying to figure out how to fit the whole drumset in one suitcase. . .

    Since I have had the gigs in September, I decided to move my internal drum microphones to this kit (except for the snare) although it took a while to dial them in. I had a chance to use them this past weekend. For the first 20 minutes, the owner of the (new) soundboard was upset because "none of the mics" were working. After he unhooked the bass drum mics and plugged it into an external microphone to no avail, he realized it was a problem with his board - he never sent the drum mics to the main speakers. After he got that resolved that issue, the soundman loved it.

    Overall it has been a fun project. I was reading on a forum that Modern Drummer had an article where they found that the toms sounded best when the mic was aimed towards the bottom head - I would agree with their findings. I also made some XLR cords with right angle connectors and an XLR output jack (located in the tom holder) for the bass drum mic.

    In the next week, I am planning on aiming an external snare microphone at the shell of the snare and A/Bing it with one that is aimed at the top head. I am looking forward to hearing the difference.

    Since it is a small kit, I started undermicing the ride cymbal and was really happy with the results. The hi-hat still sounds better having the microphone pointed at the top hat (and it is also blocks out a lot of the snare).

    Thanks Tim. I would not say that I have "gigs." I am currently playing from time to time with my friend Ken, who is the worship leader at his church, when the normal drummer is on vacation or wants a week off. I met Ken when he was a substitute teacher at the school that I used to teach at. I will probably be playing there next weekend and a couple of times in December. I am also "living the dream" playing with the jazz band at my current school. Being a small school, they only have one student that can play drum set and he didn't want to play in jazz band. Besides the school concert(s), we will be playing at Hersheypark on December 1.

    In followup to micing the snare shell, I strongly prefer the top head. What I found was crazy was the placement of moon gel (or Drum Tac). It turns that I minor changes (<4 mm near the Evans logo) resulted in significant changes in overtones. I also noticed that if I pushed down on the DrumTac to really secure it in place, it adversely affected the overtones. Weird, huh?
