Comments about SKB-CV8 Roto-X Cymbal Vault:

This is the best investment that you can make! With as much money that you put into a whole set of cymbals for you kit, why not shell out the money for this amazing case? Personally, I don't want to crack or dent any of my cymbals from having them in a padded case. This SKB case holds them firmly, and with the padding spacers it keeps them off of each other (unless you have more cymbals than the spacers allow which I do), and even then they are secure and won't fall around everywhere. With the lifetime warranty that SKB has, it doesn't matter what happens to it they will gladly send you a new one if yours gets broken in any way (which I can't see happening). I have 100% confidence that my cymbals will not get damaged in any way when they are secured in this case.

      Comments about SKB-CV8 Roto-X Cymbal Vault:

      Seems to be good quality. I wasn't sure I could fit all my cymbals in it but I did. The only down side was that I was unable to put the other felt washer on the screw knob side because the amount of cymbals. I have all Zildjian A cymbals including a 20" ride, 18", 17" and 16" crashes, 18" and 16" china boys, a 10" splash and 13" hi-hats and all fit. I am getting another 18" crash soon and I do believe I could also fit that in again w/o the top felt washer. The only downside would be the more you put in the heavier it gets.

        Comments about SKB-CV8 Roto-X Cymbal Vault:

        I have roughly $2000 invested in cymbals, and this case will protect my investment. I was concerned at first that it wouldn't hold my working setup, but it does- could probably get 1 or 2 more in there- depending on shape! I have a 22" china, 21" ride, 18" and 16" crash and 14" hihats securely stored- with room for a "hat trick" and stick bag. Like all SKB cases, it appears to be very well made, and should last many years.

          Comments about SKB-CV8 Roto-X Cymbal Vault:

          I recently decided to up my game and buy all new SKB cases for my drums and hardware. I held out on the cymbal case though, because the one I already had was still in decent shape. Then I finally decided it was time to upgrade my cymbal case to the SKB-CV8 ROTO-X CYMBAL VAULT to match the rest. This case is solid, sturdy, and well made. I think it would have to get run over by a truck before it would need to be replaced. The center post is solid, and it comes with 4 pads (which I've never used before) to separate your cymbals. So all in all, a really good purchase. The only "cons" I've noticed is that it's significantly heavier than my past cymbal case, and if you lug your stuff around a lot, you know that weight is a big deal. It's also significantly larger. Both were designed to hold up to 22" cymbals, but this one takes up quite a bit more space, largely due to its thickness and molded handle. Which is a factor if space is tight when you have to pack it. I guess that's the price you pay for quality though.

            Comments about SKB-CV8 Roto-X Cymbal Vault:

            This is the best case in my opinion you can buy, worth the price you pay for it. I like how it stacks with my other SKB cases, and I would imagine it will last forever like my other ones. The one complaint that I have is that they only include 4 protector pads with it, but they advertise the case is for up to 8 cymbals, not a deal breaker but c'mon guys, kick down a couple of extra pads! Would be 5 stars if not for that.

              I have always used cymbal bags in the past and they would only last about 1 to 2 years so I decided to spend a little more money for a cymbal vault. It was a wise decision. I play minimum 3 to 4 gigs a month and drummers know cymbals can be worth a lot of money. Spend the money and protect them. I love the solid center stud for easy removal and install of cymbals. Makes set up and tear down so much easier.

                Comments about SKB-CV8 Roto-X Cymbal Vault:

                I've been playing drums for 11 years or so. Recently I finally broke down and bought SKB Cases for all of my drums (including the fine cymbal vault). After buying them, I joined a new band that plays out a minimum of 2 times a week plus practice, recording, working all week with my drums in my car, etc. These were by far the best investment I have ever made. My old drumkits would wear out far before their time but the Pearl I'm on now has lasted longer than I ever would have imagined!Do it to it. Buy them now.

                  Comments about SKB-CV8 Roto-X Cymbal Vault:

                  SKB makes the best cases for EVERYTHING. I have about $1000 worth of cymbals in my case, and I have complete faith that my cymbals will get broken, not when my guitarist's amp slides over and crushes them. This case could probably take a hit with a sledge, a car running over it, terrorism, any kind of force except fire/water damage. For once, my cymbals are actually safer sliding around in the back of the truck with the other equipment than being on the cymbal stands. Buy one! with the money you save on broken cymbals, you can buy more cymbals.

                  Best Cymbal Case There Is

                  Comments about SKB-CV8 Roto-X Cymbal Vault:

                  This is by far the best cymbal case out there, besides SKB rolling cymbal vault, which is the same thing, just a couple of inches bigger. This case WILL protect your cymbals, that's for sure. The price is a bit much but the old saying still holds true, you get what you pay for. Why spend hundreds and possibly thousands of dollars on your cymbals and not give them the protection they need when they are being transported or stored? If you have cymbals that you don't want damaged and ever travel even just a little, you need this case. Also a great case to hold cymbals that aren't in use.

                  Comments about SKB-CV8 Roto-X Cymbal Vault:

                  Wow. This thing could withstand a tank. I don't gig too much, but I have to take my kit down frequently (wife's orders) to free up some space if company is coming over. I was always afraid of just putting my cymbals back in their sleeves and thowing them in a closet. That't not how I want to treat an investment like cymbals. Finally, I decided it was worth the investment to get hard shell case like this. I was blown away. This things is indestrucible. Frankly, this case might be overkill for what I need it for, but the peace of mind that I get from locking my cymbals away in this case is worth every penny.

                  Comments about SKB-CV8 Roto-X Cymbal Vault:

                  This case is excellent. If you are worried about taking your cymbals around, worry no more. There are a couple of things you should know before you buy. First, it does get a bit heavy after you fill it up, so if you are willing to spend the extra money on the rolling case it will make carrying it a bit easier.. Next, you do have to take the thing out of the top hi-hat cymbal in order to put it in the case, but there is a pouch to put it in. Otherwise, it is fantastic and it is extremely durable. You can throw it around the room without anything inside getting damaged.

                    This case is way better than I expected! It has contoured and padded surfaces that cradle your cymbals. Separator pads provide extra protection against scratching. A center post keeps your cymbals from coming in contact with the bottom of the case, so even if it is dropped, your cymbals will not come in contact with hard floor surfaces. Much better than the bag I had been using where the edges of the cymbals always rested on the floor. The large plastic nut has a threaded metal center, making securing your cymbals extremely easy. Great protection for today's modern cymbals which seem to be much thinner than cymbals of the past. This case far exceeded my expectations. The only thing is that there is no shoulder strap. I had gotten used to having one with my bag, but the integrated handle has a large comfortable grip and I gladly trade the shoulder strap for the far superior protection that this case provides for my HHX and K cymbals!

                          Took this puppy all around on tour. it stayed on top of gear in a trailer and occasionally got moved around with no cymbal damage. Dont ever be reckless with your cymbals! In or out of the case, cymbals are fragile. This case is my overall top pick for travel.

This is the second purchase of this product as during a gig some other band thought it to be a pretty good case as well and walked off with it.

                                  Great case. Keeps my cymbals nice and safe. Only con is that I wish it was a little deeper. It holds all my cymbals ( hi-hats plus 4), but it wouldn't accommodate more if I needed.
