So I was thinking about using a metal snare on a Compact Nesting Kit. It lets me change out with deeper snares which don't have to nest into the bass, so how's about this: carry the snare separately, short mounted toms which stack upon each other & nest into the floor tom, a slightly deeper floor, a slightly shallower bass, and the toms/bass still fit in one case! Now go rock the house! 5x10, 6x12, 12x16, 14x22; plied maple; satin wax.
