Protection Racket adds new combined Snare and Pedal Back Pack cases to their extensive range of protective bags for drummers travelling and gigging with their kits.
Many drummers feel that their snare drum and pedal are two of the most essential parts of their kit, along with their cymbals and throne.
With the Snare and Single Back Pack Pedal case (model TZ3015) plus Snare & Double Pedal Case (TZ3016), Protection Racket have ensured that any drummer can safely take the bare minimum with them and still retain the main elements of their own distinct sound.
Features Both cases can easily accommodate a 14 inch snare up to a depth of 7 inch in a snug and safe fleecy Propile environment. There is even an internal Propile separator to keep spare drum heads, plus there's a zipped pocket, 14 x 6 x 2 inch where you can keep a splash / hi-hat cymbals or even spare snare wires and drum keys.
The case comes with an extra compartment for a single or double pedal. This is attached to the base of the snare case, it can be unzipped all the way round for easy entry and exit of the pedal, but it is not detachable so will always be where it was last left.
Each come with a carrying handle on the lid, a padded shoulder strap and padded backpack straps. Made of rugged Racketex, padded with Propadd and lined with Propile, a drummer's all important snare and pedal will be "sheltered and safeguarded from the perils of travel", according to Protection Racket. These hardwearing bags come complete with unbreakable zips, waterproof backings luggage tags and the immediately recognisable 'cool dude' logo.
