Ben ThompsonFor Ben Thompson of Two Door Cinema Club, White is definitely the new black when it comes to his new Protection Racket Drum Cases.

The exuberant Two Door Cinema Club are riding a tidal wave of success through this summers biggest and best festivals in the UK, Europe and USA with white being the theme of this years tour. Their music was voted best by college students making them winners of the 2011 MTVU Breaking Woodie Award (previous winners include Kings of Leon) and they are set to appear at the Isle of White, Glastonbury and Leeds / Reading festivals to name just a few.

Protection Racket — with all the authority of the White House when it comes to making soft drum cases — have used all their usual wizardry to produce this spellbinding set of cases.  Ben is entrusting his precious drums to the milky white soft fleecy lining of these lightweight, maximum protection cases. Crafted in white with contrasting zips and fasteners capable of surviving the choppiest of journeys and come with practical carry handles.

Protection Racket - White CasesWith all the festivals coming up (and we all know how much mud there can be) dressing up your drums in dazzling snowy white cases may seem a little bit of a white elephant, but they sure will shine out in the crowd. Ben is going to see how bright he can keep the white and Protection Racket will be holding the cases up to the light after the festival season to see how much of a shine they have retained.

Wherever the gig, Protection Racket case are built to last, light, tough, road tested, clean and simple and come in a range of colours, Black, Aero Brown, Funky Green and Steel Grey.
