Would recommend - good relatively cheap solution.
We ordered the Rock set to store and protect our new Pearl Forum drum set while we do a major house remodel. The cases arrived very quickly after order, within just a few days. The shipping box was very lightweight, and slightly banged up by UPS, one of the cases was slightly bent, but usable. Having read the reviews we knew to get the rock size and that the cases are thin fiberboard.

We were pleasantly surprised with the cases. They arrived assembled, and they fit the drums well, bass drum fit a bit tight, but if you turn the drum so one of the support legs is in the corner of the case, it fits with just a slight bulge on the outside of the case where the other support leg is.

Cases are constructed with lots of metal rivets - adds strength and looks good, but we were concerned about the rivets inside the casees scratching the outer rims of the drums. We solved the problem by using each case as a pattern to cut a piece of corrugated cardboard to fit the inside of each case half, luckily we had boxes available and spent 1 1/2 hours with razor knife and scissors to custom fit snug cardboard liners. We were hoping to stack the drums on each other for storage, but that will further require a piece of plywood between each layer of drum cases to add structural support to keep the cases from crushing or warping.

All in all we are very happy with the drum cases. With the cardboard added, they would be good for transporting drums. We were especially pleased to find the markings "Nomad Drum Cases - Made in CANADA." Not made in China, and the construction quality shows. Light weight but strong enough to do the job. But I definitely wouldn't trust them in pouring rain, or to hold up to airline baggage handlers!
Needs liner to protect from rivets inside case.
Good looking, functional cases when fit with cardboard liners.

I ordered these just after getting my new drumset, in hopes of using these until I got the cash for a better set of cases. Upon getting them, I began to wish I'd gotten a nice set of bags instead. They are constructed of a thin fiberboard (unlike the heavy duty of Humes & Berg fiber) and leave no room for padding. I have a pearl maple set with optimounts, and the drums barely fit even with the clamp faced in the corner (no room to add padding as I'd hoped). If you use a mount like RIMS, there's no way they'll fit your drum unless you order a larger size.I added some fleece material to the insides of tom cases to make them useable.(I wouldn't trust the exposed rivets or rough interior on my drum finish/hardware) Though the Tom/bass cases were in my opinion "undersized" the snare case was "oversized". I easily added 1/2" foam around the sides and top. (I was glad to as I didn't want my drum bouncing around loosely in a case like this) If you're looking for a cheap way to transport you drums, I recommend opting for a set of decent bags, such as the Beato Pro 3. You'll save money, and get better protection. If you're set on hard cases, keep saving your money for a better option.

Pretty Useless

By Tino-N5YFP

Comments about Nomad 6-Piece Fiber Drum Case Set:

They are honestly like thick paper, no room for adding padding whatsoever. Won't protect your drums from drops or dents, just scratches. Drums are also a pain to fit in the cases.

Comments about Nomad 6-Piece Fiber Drum Case Set:

I have had these for a couple weeks now and used them 4 times for gigs in the Montana cold and they work great for me. I definitely don't put them in a trailer or in the trunk, but for moderate protection against dings and bumps as well as making it easy to carry the drums, they work great. I don't stack them all in one stack because the kick drum case looks like it could buckle, but they stack nicely for compact storage as well. As was said in other reviews, don't put your drums in these and expect to set amps on them or for them to survive falling out of a truck while driving, but if you take reasonable care of the cased drums, these cases work great.

Works for me

By Panama Pete

from Burlington Ontario

Comments about Nomad 6-Piece Fiber Drum Case Set:

I have been gigging every weekend for over three years and my Pearl Exports have been in Nomad cases for every one of them. Everybody and their sister has handled these things from the van and back and I guarantee that at the end of the evening not everyone is carefull when it comes to loading out. I bought my cases already used and except for the strap on one of the tom cases ripping, and yes the kick drum case being a bit too small, I have no problem. I have steel hoops on my bass drum, so I didn't notice any scratches from the rivets inside, but I would agree that wood hoops may be a bigger problem from wearing against them .

      Comments about Nomad 6-Piece Fiber Drum Case Set:

      I've been playing for 35 plus years and have opened for major acts in that time. I have owned at least 3 sets of these in that time period and can honestly say they willl not let you down as long as you treat them well. As far as not being water proof they actually do repel a little water, but if you leave them out in a down poor they probably wouldn't do so great. One thing u can do though is by a can or two of spray on laquor and coat the cases in that, I have done this in the past and works great. Also as far as the no padding issue u can go to any carpet outlet store and get pieces of carpet pad which also insulates from the cold. As far as drums fitting in the cases I've never had that issue. The cases work fine, buy them.

        Comments about Nomad 6-Piece Fiber Drum Case Set:

        They arrived quickly and the only thing wrong were the 3 rivets pulled loose in the bass case. I was not going to ship it back just for that. I think I can repair myself. These are much easier to use than the covers I have used and I believe they offer more protection.

        Comments about Nomad 6-Piece Fiber Drum Case Set:

        I got these cases a while back when I first started gigging. I'm in high school, so I don't have loads of cash to spend on expensive drum cases. When I found these they were just what a needed. Inexpensive, relatively durable, and enough cases to hold all my drums. While I doubt they could survive a big rainstorm, they've held up fine for me in light rain. Overall these are great cases for somebody who want the protection of hardshell cases without the expensive price.

        Comments about Nomad 6-Piece Fiber Drum Case Set:

        I was lucky enough to pick the rock set up. Even for the regular price these are great cases. They are lightweight and very durable. I already had a set of beato soft bag cases so I put my drums inside the bags and then inside the cases. They are a snug fit but not too tight and protect the drums that much more. I would not hesitate on buying these cases!

        Great Cases

        By dmhdrums

        from Midwest City, OK

        Comments about Nomad 6-Piece Fiber Drum Case Set:

        First off, these cases are not the absolute best cases out there, but they are definitely good enough for even a touring pro. My school has used Nomad cases for about 15 years and they are sill in excellent shape. My thought is, if you pay more for the cases than you paid for the drums you're putting in them, you're paying too much.Pros-Great Price, rugged, light; Cons- Straps slip(just tie a knot), bass drum case was a tight squeeze but it does fit; overall great cases not as good as Anvil or AKG but MUCH, MUCH, MUCH more price effective.

        Comments about Nomad 6-Piece Fiber Drum Case Set:

        I bought these a couple weeks ago after purchasing my new drum set. I wanted to protect my drums but didnt want to pay a ton for drum cases. Anyway, you get what you pay for. I wasnt impressed with these cases, they are nothing but fiberboard, nothing on the inside to protect the finish of my drums. It was like putting them in regular cardboard boxes. I ended up having to wrap them in blankets anyway. I suppose they are better than nothing for now, but I'll probably upgrade pretty soon; so do yourself a favor and save for better cases.

        First off, If your trying to protect you $2000.00 drum set with these, your a moron. I bought these for my kit, which isn't a high end kit at all, and these cases do exactly what I need them to do. So instead of my drums bouncing around in my SUV, these case help add a little a protection. Treat them well and they will treat you well.Not a bad buy at all....just realize what your getting.
