    Amazing rig. Can I make a suggestion though? Your rack should be pushed back like, a foot. The front horizontal bar should be over your kick. I'm sure you'd find it much more comfortable. And it'd be much more aesthetically pleasing.

    In real terms he could lose the front bar entirely and just use side racks, as there's nothing mounted on there. Much sleeker setup too IMO

    It is funny you both said this!

    This picture was taken 5 mins after I popped it into the room.

    I have since removed middle bar of the rack and ran everything on the side racks down low and popped the tom on a Snare stand to clean up the look of the kit.

    using a rack on that yellow kit seems like true overkill but hey, whatever floats yer boat. Yeeaarrrhh.

    I used a rack on my 5 piece ekit and found it to be a great way to clean up the footprint. I'm not a meticulous kit arranger at all but rather, setup quickly and so I can reach everything comfortably and usually stop there haha. I've never sawed down a stand pipe, or hihat rod, or used a level or anything. I probably drive the really clean setup guys crazy. I'm sure people have looked at my setups and rolled their eyes with the different hw and cymbal brands and totally non matching snare drums hahaha. I'm going to be more deliberate with the next kit because I DO appreciate the well thought out and planned setups. I doubt I'll use a rack but maybe I should, considering my sloppiness . Nice room and great selection of drums and gear, killer stuff.

    Great minds!

    Beauty of a kit. Set it up however you want. Ignore the rack-grinches.
