My rack is a DW rack. Its stainless steel so a lot tougher than Gibraltar, but only slightly heavier.Looks like there's a run on Gibraltar racks or something. Nobody has them except at 2x normal price.
Any thoughts on the DW? It would be cool to match my existing hardware, but the DW gets a premium price. Also, I haven't been able to find hex arm tom mounts to fit my new toms (Sonor kit on order).

I had Gibraltars in the last 23 years when playing Yamaha untill I moved to DW.
I love the sleeker lines you get with the DW horizontal mounts too.
The only downside is that you have less clamps to choose from.
You could use gibby clamps on it though.
I dont like the “stealth” racks with all the vertical rack pipes used for cymbals, as that really nullifies the stealth concept in general.
Also I find a three sided rack to be easier to work with then a stealth setup, and a three sided rack makes sure the kit is always setup the same. To the mm.
