I always wondered if, on the long term, it affects the drums or not. I suppose not.
It still spends most of its time stacked in my flat. Kick drum on its own, and 4 toms on top of each other.
With padding? I don't think there's any measurable effect outside of natural loosening of the heads over time. Without, it's pretty awful. I once left my toms 'dry-stacked', as it were, in my car for about 6 hours (in the dark). Came back to ruts in my Pinstripes. I'd hate to be a victim of even longer periods.
