Eww ;)

No way - floor toms stay on the floor. I went through that phase in the 80s when I tried to hang a 16" floor tom. And although you could do it, it was a lot of strain on the stand and bounced alot.

I thought there was more to your kit, and the picture wasn't of your kit completely set up, my bad.
I know that you said the rack was lighter than the stands you were using, easier to set up, etc, and those are things that should figure into the equation. To me, the rack just may be too much for what you run on your kit, because it isn't balanced out (visually) by what is mounted on the rack. Please keep in mind that I'm a rack guy.

Ultimately you decide what you want to use, and should go with what works for you and your needs. We're just a bunch of goons on the interwebs.

A 6-piece is about as big as I’d go if I were regularly gigging. So you’re saying if I use a rack, there should be more stuff on it? I could add a splash cymbal to the equation, but I like how this looks. I just compare the weight of this rack to the two heavy duty combo stands I was using, making this rack a no-brainer - and the fact that everything on it is individually adjustable and doesn’t affect what the other piece does - that’s all new to me.

But I got my pipe cutter at Home Depot today, so the vertical bars will get about five inches shorter, that should achieve some kind of balance in the force, no?

I think shortening the vertical pipes should help.with its look.

I thought you were picking up a 13" tom, and also thinking about joining a metal band? Wouldn't you go 7-piece for that?

Sorry, you misunderstood. The way it is now, is how I would gig it with the metal band. I added the 13" tom so when I use it as a 4-piece, that's what that tom is for. It gives me the traditional 13/16/22 kit I always play.

I am considering getting a double pedal if my stint with the metal band becomes a permanent thing, though.

Sweet arrangement of drums there Bo.
I've never gigged with a rack system and I was wondering how do you find the actual set up/tear down time a few stands when compared to the rack on a 13/16/22/ kit?
That would be a cost/benefit factor I might consider eventually.

Oh no - if I go out with just the 13/16/22, the rack stays home. Ill use my flat based stuff with the four-piece, which all fits in the one small rolling bag. The rack is only if I go out two-up.

Ah, I see. I knew you were picking up the 13" tom to use in your standard 4-piece configuration, I just assumed you'd be going all out if you joined the metal project.

I suppose anything over 4-pieces for me is "going all out" ;)

Over the years I realized that everywhere I get to play will be too small for anything bigger. So maybe me joining up with these hairy rock n rollers is a way to get to a physically bigger space on stage since those types of venues expect to see maybe two bass drums all the time. The only problem is, I have to play heavy rock n roll to do it :(

And today I bought a pipe cutter - I shortened the vertical tubes by five inches, so now it's easier to get the ride cymbal into a lower playing position for me.

The pipe cutter made cutting the pipes so easy, I even took off four inches from the Pearl L-arm tom holders! What an ingenious took. Who would use hacksaw and a mitre box after that?

I think it looks good. And it's a good system if you're mounting at least 2 toms and 2 cymbals which you are along with a virgin kick. This is probably what I would go with too (more likely the Gibraltar equivalent) if I was using that setup.

Your set up is interesting. I also thought of a rack because I thought it'd be easier to keep consistant and easier set up. My doubt was about the weight. You answered that question.

On your system, If you'd like to have three racks (10 12 13), do you think it'd fit in ?

Three racks would fit on the 36 cross bar. Id just have to mount more straightforward then to the side as the L arms now. It can be done.
