So, I've been on a rig config kick the last few weeks and after doing kit using stands (https://www.pearldrummersforum.com/showthread.php?277090-VMX-From-Rack-to-Stands), I started on a modified (and simplified) version of the low profile rack config (https://www.pearldrummersforum.com/showthread.php?275431-Low-Profile-ICON-Rack-setup-for-8pc-VMX) I came up with last November. It's 95% done (gonna raise the main hi hat side rack a bit). I reconfigured the studio set's rack to the original stealth rack configuration (and removed the the 13 and moved the 12 in its place), since it isn't going anywhere. This new version will set up and break down much faster than even the Stand config.

I need to raise this side of the rack just above the mem lock to match the height of the other side

Classy. I set my kit up similarly. The rack sides speed up the setup and disassembly a lot.

Thanks, guys...I'm still waiting on the CRB snare (supposed to have been here in June, but keeps getting pushed back to now Sep) to complete the CRB kit. Then lights to follow. The Ultracast sounds great with it, though.

Did you order the whole snare or just the shell?

I ordered the whole thing, plus a 13" tom.

I like it. Clean and simple. I wish I woulda went this route on my rack before I cut all my arms down. I'd have to re-buy everything. Lol

Thanks...I'm eventually going to cut the pipes down to about 20 inches like I did the Reference kit

After cutting the pipes on the ICON rack I have the Refs on, I decided to do the same with the gig rack. I'm diggin it

That looks so cool man. It must be fun to play with your drums changing colour.

Great job! Those drums look great to play and must be a neat feeling to be covered in light!!
