    Nutcases revamped for 2018

    They call themselves ‘Nutcases’ and for years they have roamed backstage, round studios, in pubs and many bedrooms looking for targets. They have encased, swathed and wrapped literally tens of thousands of drums, caring for them in the single largest ‘Protection Racket’ in recent years. Witnesses attest to the fact the drum world is still reeling from the impact these affordable cases have had, seriously reducing a drummer’s ability to abuse their kit!

    Investigators now report that Protection Racket have totally revamped and updated their Nutcases making them simply the best beginner to intermediate bags available in today’s market with the intention of taking control of organised drum protection worldwide.
