Default Gibraltar Stealth Rack

I am interested in this rack for a 4piece/4 cymbal setup.
Does anyone have experience with this rack.

How is the setup time and total weight compared to conventional stands?
Any recommendation for a hardware bag or case that will fit all of it?

The Stealth Rack has been around for a few years and it has proven to be an excellent alternative to more conventional racks.
If you want it then go for it. Your setup sounds perfect for a Stealth Rack.
The bass pedal that is shown in the image is OK but not great. I have one.

Its a great rack system, solid and strong. I suggest you get a rack bag if your doing a lot of travel as it makes a world of difference. I've made sure to use memory locks and rug markers to make set up easy, fast and consistent. I've only had to tear it down and travel a few times since I bought it but with all the preperation its easy. I also use two sets of cymbals and the rack holds the heavier Paiste cymbals (24 inch ride) with no issues.

Received these on Friday before my Saturday night gig. I was surprised how large the tubes are. Pics online from Gibraltar don't seem to show it as much. Anyway I love these things. I spent quite some time trying to figure out what set up I wanted for my kit. I ended up going with two up to the left of the bass and two down. 12,14,16,18,24. the bass in these pics is my spare, not my gig bass ( wrong heads and no port.) this was during my mock up, I took these in a panic before the gig so I would remember where everything went. With the locks I used, it went together without any issues and in a very short time. the kit has such a clean look now with a "virgin" bass and no tripods. of course, part of the night the big dude on the left brought extra cymbals to pile around my kit but whatever, at least my bass player didn't really kick my kit.

I've been thinking about getting two of them for my living room 2 piece jazzy kit with just a snare and an 18" BD.
