Believe it or not, you can pack an entire drum kit into a simple little suitcase. Sure, you might not be able to jam your 7-piece DW Collectors set with a 22″ kick drum into a suitcase, but you’d be surprised at the number of different sound sources you can keep around all while staying super portable (and, in case you hadn’t guessed, the suitcase is the kick drum).

These kits are perfect for the drummer who’s always on the go. Cafe gigs, busking in the city, and anywhere else you need to be clean and compact are the perfect situations for a suitcase drum kit. The best part? You most likely have the majority of the hardware necessary to make this project happen. In today’s video, Reuben Spyker (Drumeo’s community manager) is here to walk you step-by-step through the creation of his very own suitcase drum kit.
