Here's another look at how these Compact Nesting Kits can work: a shallower bass with a deeper floor tom and regular mounted tom means that the 3 pieces all fit in one case where the snare would be carried separately. For more kicks and grins, this project sports Spider Leg Spurs. 7x12, 13x16, 14x20; plied maple; satin wax.
Get your hands on a Compact Nesting Kit CS-16 covered in a powerful purple! This drumset nests and fits into a 16" floor tom case, allowing it to store small and travel easily. Tune the drums up high for beautiful singing tones, or drop them down low for HUGE sounds. 7x10, 9x13, 15x16, 4½x12; plied maple; satin wax.
