Can a drum kit fit in a car?
With some minor complications I was able to fit my entire Tama Rockstar drum kit in my vehicle. I did this by taking out my privacy cover and putting my two bass drums in the back while my toms were stacked next them. The cymbals had to be put on the rear seat floors and my hardware was put to the side.

How do you store drums long term?
Ideally, instruments intended for long – term storage should be kept at a temperature of 60–70 degrees and relative humidity of 35–50%. This is why you shouldn’t store your drum kit at home (in the closet, garage, or basement) or in an ordinary storage unit.
How can I transport my drums without a case?
If you can’t get any boxes, wrap up a few sheets or blankets and use them as padding in between each of the drums in your trunk or back hatch area. You can also use pillow cases or even garbage bags to put your toms in. Garbage bags don’t offer a lot of protection, but it’s better than nothing.
How do you store drums?
Storing your drum set in a cold environment is mostly okay provided you’re okay dealing with drum heads that go out of tune faster than normal. But the main thing to watch out for in a cold garage is moisture. Moisture will cause some drum heads to permanently warp, your hardware to rust and damage the wood.
How does double bass drum pedal work?
A double bass drum pedal operates much the same way only with a second footplate controlling a second beater on the same drum. Most commonly this is attached by a shaft to a remote beater mechanism alongside the primary pedal mechanism.
