Use common sense. If you buy a relative cheap drum bag like this one, don?t expect to hold 200lb. Use your creativity. A bag like this needs a couple of adjustments. Example: Attach (find a way) a round plastic material on both ends. Use the lid of a big can of paint for example. That strengthens both ends. A plastic sheet of sintra or PVC (1/8? or 3/16?) works all along the inside. That reinforces the bottom if you carry the bag horizontally. And remember, this are not an unquestionable recommendations, be ingenious and practical,Use your imagination, if you are on a low budget. Otherwise, buy a more expensive bag and stop complain about these ones. Use common sense; be practical, use your creativity and your imagination. Have e fun!!!

First, this bag isn't really padded (at least not the one I received). The shell is a sturdy Cordura material and the inside is lined with a short fur-like material, but that's it. That's OK, though, for drum hardware - it's not supposed to protect like a guitar case. The real problem with the bag is the shoulder strap. The one I received had a big snag in it, which isn't terrible, but the plastic hardware connecting the strap to the bag didn't look very sturdy. I can see why some other reviewers said it didn't last long. The bag is pretty long, longer that needed for most drum hardware, but it needs to be carried by the two side handles, which will last much longer.

Great Bag

By Glenn Sacchi

from Wappingers Falls, New York

Comments about Gator GP-HDWE Padded Drum Hardware Bag:

Just received these hardware bags in time for this weekend`s gigs. Previously, I used one fiber skin hardware box on wheels that weighed more than a ton and it was an issue if I had to move it by myself. So I got smart and purchased 2 GP-HDWE Padded Drum Hardware Bags,14x36 inches, from Gator to lighten the load and save my back. I wish I had thought of this years ago. They are sturdy and strong and have plenty of room for all my hardware including the seat of my drum stool. You can use either the heavy duty handles on top of the bag or, if you have strong shoulders, the shoulder strap. Anyway, thank you Gator for a great bag.

Should be called hardware duffle bag

By schwa

Ask me a question

Comments about Gator GP-HDWE Padded Drum Hardware Bag:

These bags would better be described as hardware duffle bags,that is what they are. I think the description is a little missleading. I've used several bags over the years and no matter what kind of soft bag you get the end result is the same---A HEAVY BAG THAT FALLS APPART---I use the 14x36 bags and think they are great. Why break your back putting 5 cymbal stands throne snare hi hat and other items in 1 bag. Like other reviews use common sense and split your hardware up and these bags should last a long time.

not padded

By heavyt

from maui,hi

Comments about Gator GP-HDWE Padded Drum Hardware Bag:

be warned. i have several gator products which i generally like, so this is more about incorrect product description. this bag has an extra lining so its not just a cordura shell, but its not padded in any way with a layer of foam like their drum soft cases. otherwise a decent duffel.

Plenty of room

By Gastambide

Comments about Gator GP-HDWE Padded Drum Hardware Bag:

This bag holds all of the hardware for my "good sized" double bass kit, including hi-hat and 3 boom cymbal stands, 5 cymbal boom arms, a triple tom stand , and my floor tom legs! But be careful, this bag will easily hold more weight than you want to carry! If you're going to fill it to that extent, have a band mate handy to carry it in and out of the gig for you.

Good product

Comments about Gator GP-HDWE Padded Drum Hardware Bag:

Bag is large enough for all my drum hardware and our bands other mic stands. It looks like it should hold up just fine and be a great product.
There are not too many features to ask for in a bag. It does exactly what I need it to. There is a nice soft lining within the bag.
I noticed that there is plastic used in the shoulder strap but everything seems to be holding together just fine.
Compared to other bags I have seen, the price is good for a bag that does its job

I LOVE THESE BAGS

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

Comments about Gator GP-HDWE Padded Drum Hardware Bag:

I've gigged with the same bags for two years now. I dont use the shoulder strap to carry them. They will hold alot of weight, I split my hardware up between three bags and their still fairly heavy. Their very reasonably priced too compared to others, and their very durable. Just dont plan on carrying a lot of weight with the shoulder strap.

This bag is not padded, just has a thin lining. It is extra long, however do not over pack. It's basically an oversized duffel bag. The picture isn't really accurate.

      This is a perfect gig bag for drum hardware. Shoulder strap makes carrying very easy. Light weight, and you can fold it when not in use. No padding For shipping, so strictly local gigs. But great price makes this a no-brainer buying decision.

        My drums mostly stay in the studio, but when I need to take them out, it's nice to have a hardware bag. I'd rather have a trap case with wheels, but that's not in the budget for occasional use. This bag is what it is: a big duffel bag. Padded? Eh, I don't see it. It's got a fuzzy lining. Seems sturdy enough, but I wouldn't expect it to take the abuse of touring. For occasional use, sure.

          Bought this to make things easier for our drummer. He is SO thankful. Loading and unloading is SO much easier, less trips to the trailer! It IS a "bag" and gives minimum protection BUT...what's the alternative? If you take care of your equipment, as we do, it will last quite a while! It's sturdy, great zippers, well made!
          Buy it!

          I bought one of these to carry drum traps and it was very satisfactory. I bought a second and now I use these to carry the band's light trees. They work great. I've had one for 8 years and no issues at all. Zippers, liner, strap, etc. are still in great shape. The second one is very slightly different but appears just as sturdy. We'll see how it holds up.

            The bag is great! I really should have made this purchase YEARS AGO. All of my stands fit inside, and I am now making less trips from the vehicle to the venue! The handles and strap make it easy to carry. The bag has a soft interior lining, but IS NOT PADDED. That's OK with me, it just needs to be changed in the product description.
