    nice bag...

    Sweet bag... If I had to complain about anything, I would say that I thought there'd be more room in the main compartment for me to stick some mic booms in there...Read complete review

    Sweet bag... If I had to complain about anything, I would say that I thought there'd be more room in the main compartment for me to stick some mic booms in there (I might have to get another bag (less heavy-duty) for the mic booms). I can't complain too much though, because it did end up holding all the hardware for my main kit, which included:
    2 double-tom stands (1 big, 1 medium)
    1 hi hat stand
    4 cymbal stands
    1 bass pedal
    6 floor tom legs
    a few accessory stands (think splash cymbals)

    After I got the long, heavy pieces secured, I zipped up the bag. Then, I started shoving/stacking the lighter stuff inside and on top of the other hardware wherever I could find a spot. It works out pretty well for what I need.

    I can't vouch for how well it works on the road. I do travel a lot though, and can say that, just by the quality of the bag, it would hold up pretty well. There's not any padding in it, so if you throw stuff around a lot, maybe this isn't for you. However, if you loaded this thing down, I doubt there'd be much "throwing around" to it.
    The dolly feature is what made this bag for me. I have a lot of hardware for my main kit, and it makes a hardware bag so heavy that it's borderline dangerous. Before, I was using a not-as-heavy-duty bag by Road Runner, which is a great bag, but it couldn't fit everything and had straps that I questioned whether or not they could stand the weight all the time. By comparison, this bag holds a lot more and has some extra pockets that are certainly useful. The dolly is well-made and does the job. There are 2 decent-sized pockets on the port and starboard sides of the bag. I use these for the floor tom legs, the hi hat stand innards, and small accessory stands. There's a smaller compartment on the head of the unit which I use for small items (drum keys, beaters, etc.). The whole bag splits open like banana and makes it easy to move hardware in and out. Like most hardware bags, there are some straps on the inside to keep one or two of the long/heavy pieces extra-secure.
    There was one review on here that said (something similar to) "there are sooo many pockets on this thing!!! wow!!!" Well, I wouldn't say there's that many, but the ones that are there do the job just fine. I wouldn't want too many smaller accessory pockets anyway, because I don't think there are that many small, often-loose items on a drum kit.
    There are some good straps/handles on this thing, located all around the thing so you have a few options for handling it, which helps if you're trying to manhandle it into storage or in and out of a car.
    The fabric is bullet-proof. So are the zippers. I can see, as long as one doesn't do anything stupid, this hardware bag lasting a lifetime.
    The straps and handles are secured/stitched very well:
    I recently stored this bag in my friend's basement to clear up some space. The area I was storing it was a split-level deal. Hard to explain, but basically I had to lift this bag (with the billion pounds of hardware) up about 4.5 feet to get it on this level. While the lifting sucked, the straps and handles didn't have me worried at all.
    All I can say is that you get what you pay for. This one was a little pricier than the one I originally bought (which I now use for my jazz kit's hardware), but I also got a lot more. I think that, overall, it's a good investment to save your back and keep your hardware in good condition.

    Substandard Stiching

    One of the bottom handles ripped right through one of the side pockets rendering it useless after four months. MF has only a 45 day return policy, so I'm stuck with it. Beware.

        Comments about Gator Drumcart Hardware Bag:

        Great product! Will stand up for storage if needed, which is a great space saver. Technician told me it was 4 foot in length but I think that was with the cart attached because I have to take my hi hat apart for it to fit. My old bag was 4 ft and I never had to take it apart before, But that's no problem. There are plenty of pockets for extra storage. Very impressed. Large inline wheels are nice too. The bag does not completely zip open. It stops 8-12 in from bottom. Can be a slight inconvenience but not a deal breaker. The attached dolly/cart is what makes this product worth it.

          My package arrived 2 days before Christmas,but the wheels had been bent during the UPS experience.. The customer sevice agent Aaron, overnighted me a new one and asked me to ship back the defective one. I explained the difficulty in shipping from my area (BFE) , no problem says Aaron, Ill give you a return label to print... WOW it was that easy!! I cannot express my grattitude to musician's friend for the speedy and hassle free way they do business.. They trusted me to ship thier item back, gave me a new item, and paid for the shipping! I have been a customer for 7 years, and will continue for several more.

          Comments about Gator Drumcart Hardware Bag:

          I bought this for smaller gigs with a smaller kit and I have been impressed with the versatility. This bag can carry MANY things along with your hardware! Many deep pockets for sticks, tools, cowbells, shakers and more toys. The main bag can carry my hi hat stand (folding the footboard), 4 full cymbal/tom stands, throne plus seat with a little room to spare. Be careful not to overload the bag because you may need to lift it still. The bag can carry it all and is robust enough to shift weight around with all the hardware inside. This has been ideal for me to move a solid 5 piece drum kits hardware around but anything bigger would need another bag at least. Coffee shop gigs are perfect along with small clubs because it moves very well and is super easy to wheel around tight spaces. My only complaint/suggestion would be towards the wheels. They hold well but to me I feel they'll break off if they're abused in a big way. Glides well but it is only a pair of roller blade wheels held on by a fairly small pin. Don't get me wrong it does well and I would buy another as is... I just would feel better with a heavier duty wheel configuration. 8 out of 10 just because of the wheel integrity. Very glad I bought this! Can't go wrong with this bag.

              Comments about Gator Drumcart Hardware Bag:

              I bought this bag to save my back lugging around heavy percussion hardware and it is very good for this. I really like the design with the large main compartment that completely opens up to make loading it and unloading it very easy. Has a sturdy plastic bottom reinforcement as well as a security strap inside to prevent items from jostling around too much. Also great to have the large side compartments and pouch on the front, plus the compartment on the top. Nicely designed for a variety of types and sized of gear. Helps with organization and therefore makes setting up easier as compared to having everything thrown together in one single compartment.

              Works very well in rolling along on the ground. Also, with the two handles it can be carried as well instead of rolling it.

              My one critique is that the frame, while plenty sturdy and functions well, is not welded with particularly high quality construction. And the painting is also not necessarily the best quality. It looks fine, but I can tell underneath there may be some rust underneath in spots. So, the metal frame shows indications of being somewhat quickly and cheaply built. But, that being said, it is very sturdy and functions very well for its purpose. The frame is not going to come apart I'm sure. It doesn't really need to be top quality welding to be totally good for its purpose (it's not an aircraft frame after all). One other slight possible issue is that the wheels, while they have been great so far for me, may not be the most sturdy in the world. They work well, but I suspect that if you abused them and let the bag really bounce hard with a full load repeadetly, perhaps they might break? Not sure, just a guess. I think if you don't abuse the wheels and expect them to be able to be dropped onto concrete with 100 pounds in the bag, they should be fine. I take a little bit of extra care not to abuse the wheels and it has been fine.

              This bag is very good if you want something to use for travelling occassionally, perhaps in your local area maybe once a week or less. This is probably not designed to be able to take the heavy abuse of professional touring. But if you don't need something for full-time road touring, this bag is very helpful to save your back without paying the much higher costs for the super rugged road cases.

                  Incredible design. Holds all your stands without having to take them completely down. Numerous perfect sized side, front, & top pockets. Almost like a golf bag but for hardware.

                  I've bought a lot of cases over the last 40+ years. BEST one ever.

                        Best feature is it will stand up either loaded or empty. I get lots of golfing jokes. Rolls easily. Holds all my hardware except hi hat so now I am down to one bag. Only thing that could be better is some kind of side roller so it could go up and down stairs - it already has the brace there. Because it is so easy to roll you tend to really load it up and then if there are stairs you will need help with it. Bigger wheels would be nice too.

                          This bag is perfect for my needs. If you're playing out often at local bars and clubs this bag is a great choice. It's fairly lightweight, relatively strong, a decent price, and tons of room for the average kit's hardware. But the frame and wheels are the key. Super easy to roll, and I love how it stands up by itself on the frame. Fits in the trunk of my car.
                          It may not be strong enough for heavy road touring, etc., but for my needs it's perfect.

                          If you are touring or even just tired of lugging your hardware around, this is definitely the answer.
                          The rack and wheels are extremely sturdy. Also, there are a ridiculous amount of pockets on it!
                          The material is heavy duty, and the zippers can take a beating.
                          It'll last you forever and protect all your gear in the process.
