Labeling your drums (with names, numbers, or symbols) not only helps YOU know what drum is yours, but helps the staff and everyone else as well.
This streamlines the process when running to your drum and picking it up in a hurry, during loading/unloading, and if the drums are moved for any reason (one example would be during a meal break and they are in the way of janitors or food crew) you know which one is yours right away even if it is placed out of order in the line.
You can add a label to your drum without writing directly on the instrument by writing on tape, or using stickers (the numbers for mailboxes work like a charm!) Don't forget to also label your harness as well.⠀
