The Humes and Berg Vulcanized Fibre Cymbal case. This is the real thing, the original case that was invented first over 70 years ago. It will protect your drums, is lightweight and is sensible protection without breaking the bank and your back. The best photograph to illustrate the quality of these cases is the "gong" case shown in the picture. The picture shown is a case without the foam lining. But, as you can tell, this is a no nonsense case that uses vulcanized fibre material, protective rivets, leather straps and comfortable handle. This is all you will need to protect your drums and hardware.
I have used the Humes and Berg vulcanized fiber drum cases and cymbal cases for years. I have bought new ones and used ones, round ones and square ones. These Humes and Berg Vulcanized Fibre cases do what they are supposed to do…protect. They are well made, simply engineered, are no nonsense, but do their job. They have virtually unbreakable handles and straps, and are made from Genuine 100% vulcanized fibre material. As a drummer who has to carry heavy stuff, I cannot see any reason why you would want to add to their weight by using an over-engineered case. You need hard cases if you’re playing a lot of gigs. Your valuable drums get banged around a lot already; why not protect them when they are being transported with easy to carry Vulcanized Fibre drum cases. What you don't need is a case that is heavier than your drums. Other manufacturers over-enginneer their cases. Their cases are made for "roadies"; these cases are made for drummers!
Fast set up and take down. I know, as a drummer at the end of the night, all you want to do is get out of there. The drummer is usually the last guy out. So with these cases, you open a case, place your drum in it, close the top and move on – fast! A complete set of drums can be taken down and put away fast and much faster than gig bags. Gig bags are fine if you are just starting out and on a tight budget, but sooner or later you will want hard cases. The Vulcanized Fibre case can be stacked easily, are weather proof (although no cases are completely rainproof) and you can rest assured that your drums will be protected as well as your bank account.
Plus, these Humes and Berg Vulcanized Fibre cymbal cases are probably the most sought after used drum cases on the market. Why, because they are almost indestructible. And if these are indestructible imagine how well your drums will be protected. You will never have to buy another drum case.
The Humes and Berg Vulcanized Fibre cymbal case is the original cymbal case…the real thing. They are available in every size, for drum sets from a 6 X 8 to 24 X 22 or marching drums up to an 18 x 36. Plus there are combination cases, cymbal cases, conga cases, tambourine cases, and drum hardware cases with casters. They are available in their original form and for the really concerned…a soft interlining foam version is available.
Choose your size below. You should use the actual drum shell – (height X drumhead) size; the case already makes provision for drum hoops, lugs, throw offs, tom mounts, bass drum spurs, etc. For example, an 8 X 12 case will fit a “tom” shell that is 8” high and has a 12” drumhead.
Oversize shipping charges using dimensional weight for UPS or FEDEX ground shipping will be applied to some cases at checkout. But if you are buying more than one case or a complete set, we will nest the drum cases if possible to reduce the shipping cost. We will make sure you are paying a fair price for shipping as we do for all of our products. Your total transaction amount may be lowered.
Note: shipping charges are for the lower 48 states only. Shipping outside this range will require a separate shipping quote.

Humes and Berg continues to make engineering and design changes. Their models Enduro and Enduro Pro are made of heavier material, have stack locking designs, and have heavier duty straps. Check out these links, if you want to step up to more substantial cases.
But the Vulcanized Fiber Cymbal Case will make you very happy.
