I was fiddling with the exposure on my camera, not deliberately trying for the ad-man gloomy/happy lighting effect. In any case, I like the rack much more than the stands, smaller footprint, more precise positioning.

Looks great, the rack cleaned up the appearance nicely.
Did you keep your stands? It's always good to have them.
I use both too.

Plus, it looks cooler. What cymbals are you using there?

Yes, I have the stands, and I'll keep most of them, maybe sell off a couple, and use the rest for small set-ups.

13" A Custom Hats, 20" 2002 Ride, 16" and 18" Vault Crashes, 16" Oriental Crash, 16" China Boy High, 8" A Custom Splash.

Yes, I prefer the look with a relatively big set as well!

I thought I spotted a 2002 ride! Very cool setup, definitely one I'd like a go on.

Looks nice. A rack definitely helps to save room in a small space. And look, you were still able to position everything where you had it with the stands. Who would have thought.... hehe

It's a mongrel set. When I bought it, there was a five-piece that seems to be about '99 (all birch, chrome screws, rounded bearing edges) and a second kick and 8" that are probably '02 (sharp edges, black screws). I don't use the second kick, for space reasons, and I haven't bought another pedal. Anyhoo, I decided I wanted 12x14" and 14x16" floors instead of the 11x14" hanging tom I had, so I ordered 'em, They are 2006s, for sure. Then I bought the new white logo heads, because they look ridiculously awesome on the blue drums.

Yeah, there's not a big difference, I was pretty happy where stuff was. The toms have moved very subtly, for the better. The main differences are: less stuff to trip over during practices (the ride end of the kit is jammed up against an amp), and I don't have to move the hat side china stand to get behind the kit.

Damn, good eye!

It's funny, the other drummer (well the real drummer, I pretty much suck) is a four-piece only kind of guy, and was a little leery when I was talking about picking the thing up. But when he takes a turn on it, he's all over the kit, really enjoying the freedom and options of the extra pieces. It helps that they sound great...
