Amen. The DTXtreme III module is awesome and the rack is very heavy and very stable. I bought mine a few months ago and could not be happier with all aspects of the kit and the rack system.

Just adjust the leg at the front (pivot it L/R at the front)...:)...I'm building the same setup with my snare..just waiting on a tom ball clamp (I've got the 900 series snare basket)

Regarding the new snare stand, that's good to know that it fits in the top of the vert. pipe clamp; just in case I decide to add a full size snare (14") to my left...I currently am using either a 10" or 12" erskine sig. model there...I've bought 3 of the HXR3L's and misc. parts to build up my (2) 4 legged racks..:)

The SS-940 and 930 have the same pipe diameter as I remembered.


(I didn't like the 4 arms basket, its getting in the way of most strainers, even Yamaha)

I had the option to trade on SS-930 to the new 950 (and what would one do :P) The other I used the basket for my Spd-s and sold the bottom part.

I know the pipe diameters changed between the 930 series and the 940 series...the -40 series hardware came in quite a bit lighter in weight than the -30 series..I just didn't know if the -40 series top pipe was same dia. as tom ball holder pipe..:)

SS930 not sure which one that is........... is it more then two years old I don't see it in the last two catalogs?
I thought all snare stands had the 22.2mm tube I have the SS840 and had no problems fitting.

On a side note If you Guys have a 24" curve bar that you don't need send it my way.
I have two extra "Cross Clamps" that I don't need

22.2mm tube..are you talking about the top tube?...if so the 930 series I believe had a larger dia. than that...I know this much...my 930 snare basket top tube won't fit into the vert. hex pipe top clamp..:)...and good luck on finding a 24" curved pipe..I've had one on order for approx. 6 mos....still haven't gotten it..what do you want for the cross clamps??....

BTW..here's a couple of pics of my maple kit so far..still waiting on a few things..namely the tom ball mount (just ordered a few days ago) to use for for the snare basket on my 36" curved foot bar....





Future foot bar..:) to be used w/ snare

^^I used to play in a worship band that played at many different churches.
I now play in a Christian rock / pop band.

The new Yamaha gear is really amazing! I can't believe how great these birch shells sound!!!

I am officially a convert from 16 + years of Pearl drums to Yamaha! Great kit!

I'm not sure how Tama mounts are config'd . If the tube is 7/8" it'll work!

Questions for all of you guys with rack systems (Yamaha or other):

1) What is the difference in time to set up/ tear down?

2) Will a 3 sided rack system fit in a large trap case? (I have the SKB X-1)

3) Do you find it easier to gig with? I move my stuff at least once a week.

4) The only rack experience I have was with my old TD20. My impressions were that it is not as flexible overall as regular stands, especially with the Yamaha triple tom mounts.

5) Is there a noticeable difference in the weight between the rack and stands?


Your feedback is greatly appreciated!

I just got my Hex Rack (3 sides) last Friday and I love it. I have the SKB case that's meant to be used for a big golf bag and I got the whole thing in there though I had to really break it down to do so. It still went up pretty quickly but no faster than when I was using my old stands.

What I did this last time around was take out the middle bar leaving the two sides intact and just pulled out all of the boom arms (which I have color coded with strips of different colored electrical tape) and packed them away with the middle bar, hat stand, snare stand and mic stands. Since I'm not packing as much in the SKB case, I don't have to break down the remaining stands as far. All of this greatly improved set up time. I pack all of my drums into the back of the van and but both sides of the rack on top of them.

The receivers are designed for standard 7/8" tubes as are the hex clamps.
The picture shows Yamaha medium booms from my 780 stands.
I am currently using Pearl 900 series booms on the set up. The Yamaha booms are back
in service with my stealth bop kit.

Thanks for the info.
I manged to find some of both kinds of booms. For some reason only 1 of the 5 guitar centers in my area (Dallas) carry the booms. One other store happened to find one stashed somewhere behind the counter. They don't even stock the racks, not sure why.
The small booms work well on the front tubes, the web site descriptions make it sound like the small ones will only hold splash cymbals. Ive got my 16" and 17" cymbals mounted on them and they work fine.
Ive never used anything Yamaha makes before. I'm very impressed. They make very nice hardware. The only complaint I have is the pricing. The booms and clamps are not expensive at all, about 35 bucks, but some of the multi-clamps for these racks are over $100. Seems a bit steep.
