    I am cringing just looking at it
    Fingerprints add character and warmth to a cymbal. Kinda like “chicks dig scars”. Lol

    I know you are correct on that but I just can't . . . can't pack up my cymbals without wearing gloves (even the ones that already had fingerprints on them when I bought them).

    Dale, sorry for this minor derailment. Resume the cymbal case discussion. . .

    Wow. Wearing gloves is pretty excessive to me. I donít know when the last time I cleaned my cymbals let alone do that.

    Same here. I bought a bottle of Zildjian cymbal cleaner years ago… And never opened it.

    I wear gloves for setup and teardown too. Keeps oils and sweat off my gear so I don't have to clean it as often.

    Yeah, it probably does seem a little excessive, but fingerprints on chrome is one of my triggers.

    That's why I usually buy used cymbals - they've been pre-loved with lots of skin contact, so they have already been mellowed out.

    Don't rule out the Gator GP12. Great bag for the price!

    I’m sure the price helps too.

    My new 16” Sabian AA Rock Crash from a “college demo show” is flawless. Paid about 1/2 of what it would’ve been new.

    I must say having owned the bag in question, I agree. However the newer designed hardware cases, with the retractable handle, and different more solid wheels are excellent. I have 3 of the 28" models for different hardware rigs (main kit, percussion rig, etc.) and they all stand up to a hell of a lot of abuse. They're more rigid than the previous and slightly slimmer in height (10" rather than 14") which makes it feel like a suitcase and not like a body bag! I'll be packing 2 of them in the back of my car with ease this weekend.

    That sounds like a VAST improvement! The original design was just horrible.

    Definitely. Having said that I pulled 15 years out of my old 38" bag. Much prefer the size and manoeuvrability of the 28s though. I found the ahead sleds I demo'd in a store far to heavy and bulky while empty (Not to mention way overpriced!). I was a bit dubious at first of the 10" height, to get my stands and throne top in, its a squeeze (Throne, 3 BC-150 stands, 1 BC-830, 1 S-830, music stand and tom clamp/FT legs) but you get used to packing it in order and everything just sitting in fine. If I didn't put the stool top in it would be a bit easier, but i'd rather it all travel together. I do know guys though who use a pair of 28" bags and split their stands between them to lower the weight (if they're using something like DW9000 stands which weigh a ton each).
