NAMM Preview! SKB Cases Go Soft (well, kinda)
By Andy DoerschukPublished January 6, 2011
Excuse me for giggling with joy, but it sure is exciting to begin getting sneak previews of the delicious new drum gear that will debut at next week’s Winter NAMM Show. Our latest installment reveals an interesting new chapter in the story of SKB, a company that has earned its sterling reputation by building state-of-the-art hard cases for every type of musician (including drummers). In a stark about-face, the company has introduced the new line of soft drum cases that provide the convenience of gig bags, but with more protection. The new cases have a polyurethane inner wall that gives the sides more ridged construction and adds additional content protection. The outside is wrapped with a 600 denier nylon while the padded interior is 100 percent plush lined. Each case includes convenient carry handles, shoulder straps, and heavy duty double zippers.
