Has anyone used DW's 'Go Anywhere' kit? It looks like it would be pretty convient. As some of you have read in my other posts, I'm only able to play on a practice kit of some kind right now because I'm on a ship in the Navy. I have a set up right now but it's a lot of pieces that makes for a hell of time carrying it back and forth from the ship. The Go Anywhere looks like it would be a lot easier to haul around. Anyone used one before :?:

I can't afford one of these.

I have a 16x16 floor tom on a danmar Tom kick riser, 8" rack tom, snare, and am getting a 14" floor tom.

I tried one they seem pretty cool. Just for me personal preference the bass drum pedal seems to be in the wrong place and of course you can't change it.
However i still think I will buy it its a well priced well made compact solution.
I think i prefer the rubber pads to mesh as i have a mesh practice pad iand i tedn to tune it to tight which makes things like doubles really easy and then when i sit down at the kit everything seems slower ha............ never mind

If the info helps. The DW Go Anywhere Kit is a Practice Pad Set. It can be ordered with optional Bag. For the price and for a limited space is the best bang for the buck.

Also, they are made of rubber; not mesh. It's very easy to mount or pack up. It also can be played with a double bass pedal. The only thing you need to add is the throne, the pedal and the sticks.

If you have more space it can be combined with DW's Cymbal Pads and add the additional stands for hi hat and cymbals and you have a complete practice kit.

I think this is the link:

pearl also used to have a very small travel kit where everything was about the right diameter but the shells were only 4 or 5 inches thick and all the drums fit together in the bass drum... never played one though so no idea how they sound.

Seems like a cool idea but I'd have to play one first to see how they sound.
