Ask any drummer, “what is the first thing you do when setting up”, and they will tell you, “put down my drum mat”. The drum mat, the unsung hero of any drummers set up, like any piece of equipment, needs to be protected from the elements, easy to carry and store, quickly identified and secure when packed up.
The new Protection Racket Drum Mat Bag is 100% waterproof, super lightweight and comes with a draw string entry, keeping your mat secure and tightly rolled when packed away. The central carry handle makes it easy to move about, in comparison to the more usual “under the arm”carry job!
Maybe it’s just me, but I’ve never felt the need to have a case just for my drum mat. My little $15 Home Depot entry mat rolls up quite nicely. Then again, if you have a monster drum mat, then a bag could come in handy.
