    just get 2 double cymbal stands and an extra arm to mount your splash. If you set it up right, it'll look much cleaner. I think a rack on a set up that small would be overkill.

    Agreed. A rack makes sense for larger kits. For smaller ones, not so much. The last gig I played was with a 10, 14, 20 kit plus snare. One crash, one ride and hats. Stands worked fine.

    I kinda miss the rack I used to have with my old Collector's series set. Something like this would be easy to achieve and can me shortened to be more accommodating to a smaller footprint. I think the Gibraltar racks are great for the money. The DW rack was nice but it wasn't easy trimming down the stainless steel tubes. A standard pipe cutter wouldn't work and I ended up having to use a band saw.

    that is SUCH a good looking set up, one of my favourites.

    Really well done. This is very much along the lines of what I'm thinking.

    That setup looks nice. It's basically the same as mine, minus one kick and tom and you have an extra splash and it does look very clean.

    So I've ordered a hex rack. I have these three pieces pictured coming, although the main rack bar comes with two cymbal boom arms too. My unsupported wing tube, is 36" also, the one pictured, looks longer. I want to mount an aux snare with what I'm using and hope you guys can help me figure out what I need? At first I was just going to order this Gibraltar snare basket and another clamp but wonder if that alone, will do the trick. I'd love some suggestions for a cool setup with what's coming. I'm not all the imaginative and miss what might seem like obvious setup designs. My main goals are cleanliness and ergonomics.

    Again the kit is :

    10x8
    12x8
    14x14ft
    20x14
    14" main snare
    13" aux snare
    Hats
    3 crashes
    1 splash
    1 Ride
    Single kick pedal

    I went ahead and ordered the Gibraltar basket and another clamp. Also got some heads, snare wires and a kickport. This will be the first time I've ever ordered all new hw to go with a new kit. Good to have backups of everything I suppose.

    You're not going to try to mount the aux. snare on the unsupported "wing" are you?
