    Default New Icon Rack Components? Ideas???

    Have you guys and gals have you seen the Pearl rack ideas on youtube? It would be nice if they show just the racks without the drums to give us a better idea on how to put one together OR add to an existing rack.

    I'm interested in putting together a rack system that eliminates the middle horizontal bar. Kind of like this https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CWSPztOtdrs. This will allow me to get my 12x9 rack tom closer to me and not so spread out, making it arc more. Just like this set up from Todd S. The first pic is my set up and the second pic is Todd's. I know he uses stands on this set up but you get the idea on what I'm trying to do.

    I've been most intrigued with this basic concept as a starting point...

    I would like to mount the toms a little higher and at a 45 degree angle. Mount the splash off one side and a stack off the other. Then add "wings" for the main crashes.

    Thing is, if you're going to do something like the above, you are actually better off with Gibraltar. When it comes to bars (lengths, curves, bends, etc) they've got Pearl beat, and when it comes to clamps, the've got Pearl beat. And I'm pretty sure they're less expensive too. I can see some of the new Parl parts being useful on a Gibraltar rack, potentially.

    I think it is cool that they have installed two hair dryers on this rack system.

    Yes, maybe they are listening after all.

    You use the name Gibraltar, like others use ski-doo. There are other round rack companies out there you know.

    That rack configuration really took my attention when the NAMM 2019 pics began showing up.

    Even if I've been a Pearl rack user for almost 20 years, building a Pearl rack based mainly on tubes makes no sense to me. Gibraltar as way more options, for a lot less money.

    That being said, I've looked for a way to build such a setup with Gibraltar hardware. For aesthetic reasons I'd use only chrome. I came up with this (use your imagination please) :

    The front leg



    The back leg



    The vertical post (I'd use Pearl post clamps because Gibraltar ones are ugly and stuck in the 80's)


    From there you could build whatever you want. Would cost around $100 a piece, including memory locks. Still debating if I could take the plunge.
