Make your playing experience as comfortable and enjoyable as possible. Hosbilt™ has developed fantastic carriers for bass drummers and drum slings for tenor drummers and snare drummers who still prefer the traditional method of drum carrying.
The need for a harness with full lumbar support and fully adjustable shoulder straps led me to develop the Hosbilt™ Drum Carrier. The new Hosbilt™ Drum Carrier is designed for your drumming comfort. Through extensive research and development, Hosbilt™ worked with physiotherapists, chiropractors and Bill Ostrom of Ostrom Outdoors, one of the world’s greatest back pack makers. It can convert most existing shoulder hook type carriers into a well padded, flexible shoulder system, complete with lumbar support. Simply remove the hooks on your carrier and bolt on the quick snap adaptors and you are ready for the most comfortable marching percussion experience ever. If it is a first time carrier purchase, it comes with a simple yet effective aluminum cross bar with hook and padding. The Hosbilt™ Drum Carrier was designed so that you can worry about your music and not your back.
With the advent of the snare drum carriers in the early 1990’s, the demand for traditional drum slings tapered off. After receiving numerous requests from drummers for good quality drum slings, Hosbilt™ decided it was time to reinvent the wheel so to speak. Hosbilt™ has developed a choice of top end drum slings, with and without waist belts. Hand-crafted using robust materials that will endure year after year of drum carriage. The ingenious bull-ring feature prevents the strap material from twisting and contributes towards positioning the drum in a stable position. The regular model is for the more traditional approach of slinging the drum. The waist belt model helps the drummer bear some of the load onto their hips and off of the shoulder.
Hosbilt™ Carriers & Slings are available to order from our network of international distributors.
