Re: Anyone ditch the rack?
I bought a new Gibraltar Rack system when I bought my 6pc Gretsch kit. I loved it and used it a lot. I'm not in a band and didn't have to take it down much other than when I switched kits in the drum room. After a couple of years I sold it and bought some Gibraltar Jazz series stands and I use a couple Gibraltar Tripods to mount toms, bells, blocks and some more cymbals here and there. I like the stands - easy to use....quick setup. After having the stands for a couple years now I do kind of miss my rack system. It would be nice to have both I guess.
