Default Best Simple Drum Rack?

Looking for straight or curved simple rack. Must be adjustable vertically to 26" or 28" in height. I found a Gibraltar rack used but 36" height and not adjustable (wtf?)

Opinions on best bang for the buck?

thanks

I don't own one but I think the PDP rack has got a lot of options.

Prices are pretty good on special ordering just the pieces you need as opposed to buying a standard pack.

Pearl Icon. check them out and shop for pricing. I bought my rack online at one store and the clamps at another and talked them into discounted shipping. Good luck.

+1 on the Pearl Icon. I found the single rack for 125 w/clamps.

I'd check out Gibraltar again. I have one of their racks and it's height-adustable and very strong.

HTH,

Mike

I ran a Pearl DR-100 rack for 15 years. Held up to every gig I thru at it. The Pearl Icon is evolution of that rack. Simple, robust .... will probably last you a lifetime.
Now, to be fair, I got rid of the DR-100. Thought I'd never need a rack again. Low and behold, now I'm using a Yamaha hex rack. Yes, it's currently discontinued (but I own 2, and that's all I'll probably ever need). And Yamaha is working on a new hex rack, that will supposedly be compatible with the old one. Time will tell. This one, I'm gonna take to my grave.
And that's a 26" kick.

I stand by my PDP/Gibraltar hybrid.

The only advantage (I think) is that I can fold up the three sides and make a much more transportable assembly. I don't think that would be possible with a square-tube rack. Most racks nowadays are very close in their ability to adjust to any setting, any height, and any conguration you dream of...and are relatively priced.
