My wife and I are moving to a new apartment, which means I recently needed to pack up my drums. As I was putting the snare in a bag, I noticed a little rust spot on one of the tension rods. It isn't anything major, but I had never seen it before. Then it dawned on me that I should probably inspect my equipment regularly: give everything a quick inspection everytime I pack it up for something. (This doesn't happen too often, so maybe I should do a periodic inspection anyways).
Does anybody do this? How often?

Normally I do this when I replace heads on the drums.

I generally give my stuff a once over at least twice a year, or more often when I change heads.
