how to get your cymbal bag on the plane
If you prefer to spare yourself the discussions about your oversized and heavy hand luggage at the check-in, find a working solution in the following. Get a luggage trolley when you are heading the check-in and hide your cymbal bag behind your luggage, that you want to check in (see pics). Place the trolley close to the desk, so that they cannot see the cymbals from behind it. If they ask you about your hand luggage, just refer to your laptop bag or something similar. Once you reached the gate, it is too late for them, to insist on checking in your cymbals and there is always space enough even in the smaller airplanes.
