Hey dudes, how are y'all?
I'm playing with a band who are headed stateside (visas allowing...) in a couple of weeks to tour for about three weeks.
I've been considering what the best option for kit might be. Although it's a support tour we'll be a separate independent entity (headliners don't use kit, also there are a few of our own shows) so we'll need to get a kit. We start in Phoenix and end in Philadelphia.
I suspect that the best option may be to buy a kit in Phoenix and then sell it at the end? It need not be anything fancy but drums and hardware and cases. Cheaper the better really - any ideas where I might go? Would it be easy to sell...?
We don't have a great deal of time etc. I would love to read some ideas about what might be best, it's our first time touring US! Exciting times.
Thanks very much.
