    Default How do you store your excess hardware?

    I want to see pics of how people store their extra stands, hardware, etc.

    Not sure that gives you any insight. That's about six kits worth of hardware. Including three racks. I just bag it all by the kit it goes with and store it away. Nothing special.

    The two little Tama bags in front (with red zippers) are for the kit I gig with. Couple of empty bags thrown on top for the rack/kit setup at home.

    Not sure I have any photos but i'll add them if I find some!

    My gigging hardware for my kit is in a 28" Wheeled Pro Racket case, and the hardware for my percussion setup that I use on theatre shows is in another 28" Wheeled PR bag.

    My rack and anything else thats not in use in the drum room (inc mic stands too) goes in a (LxWxH) 54x12x14" flight case on castors. Keeps everything neat and tidy and is easily moved if needed.

    Under the bed and in corners of closets. Hardware takes up so much room. My wife and I have enough hardware between us to outfit several kits.

    I had a cabinet that I used when
    we lived in San Francisco. Took
    up some space but worked great.

    As others, in a hardware case in the loft (attic). Not ideal as the loft (attic) isn't the driest as far as atmosphere goes. But not really anywhere else for it.

    When you do transport it, do you place it in the boot (trunk)? I would think the boot (trunk) is the best place for
    hardware.

    I decided that with the lack of gig opportunities now and into the forseeable future that I should store one of my kits at my guitar-player friend's house where we jam once a week. That cleared up a bunch of space since having two kits at home didn't make much sense. Its nice having my own drums to play there, which are a BIG step up from the practice kit he had there. Other excess hardware is currently being stored in an old hardware bag in my garage.

    Sticks I love your set up - for years I've told people about a guy with a barn with a loft where he keeps his drums.

    In a plastic tub in my garage. It's mostly assorted parts and clamps.

    I have very little spare hardware. I've sold off all the stiff that's not essential.
