    Thanks. You'd be surprised at the amount of d-bags. On any level. Promoters, Sound, Lighting, artists, etc.

    All I can say is that there is more to the story and everyone, from out booking agent, manager, singer (who's band it was), tried to talk this promoter out of it. In fact, it took longer for each drummer to adjust the kit to his liking than it did for me to assemble my huge rack and put it on and take it off of stage......

    Sorry Chris for the Hijack...

    All good bro. People in this business are often intimidated and turned off by large kits. The honest truth though is that the drummer will have a much better performance on their own rig and, as you mentioned, is usually able to get his or her kit on and off faster than adjusting everything on a house kit...ESPECIALLY if there are memory locks in place. I'm hardly ever a fan of the "house kit" situation, but you just have to roll with it the best you can, then get on out there and kick some ***!

    Everytime I've had to play on a house kit, my performance has suffered. No doubt.

    Why do you think that is? For me its a mix of "i know where my drums sit, that they sound/look good" and "i play them all the time vs. this other kit". So i sit there really self conscious worrying what people think about me and then screw up at some point.

    What a faintastic setup!

    I'm trying to find the virgin kick mounts on Level's site to no avail. I'm on a bit of a data gathering road here

    I had use of a ex-drum shop owner and friend's Voelker for many years (the only one in Australia I believe), overhead cymbal rack and all, and about the only issue I had with it was the virgin kick mounting. I rigged up a system that worked but it was far from elegant, but I've not seen a way of doing it so far that I was completely in love with. I have a pretty complicated rack setup at the moment for a 3 but planned 4 bass drum rig (which you can see here if you like) that runs leg bars at angles leaning outward, and obviously my mind is going down the incorporated riser route to anchor the legs. Being able to mount the kicks would simplify the riser setup immensely...

    Not sure if it's already been mentioned, but the rack looks kind of like Prow of a ship Looks great, mate! I've often wondered how those kicks stay up in the air, now I know
