    Merry Christmas, all! I've been away for far too long (going to school in addition to working and playing gigs), and it seems I've missed some posts in which I can lend my experience.
    Jamie, this is my "inside out" rack, also dubbed the "ghost rack" by Brent Barnett at Gibraltar. Like you, I also use a 20" bass drum. My setup is also made possible by an Off-Set double pedal and the legs have been removed from the hi hat stand in order to attach it to the horizontal rack bar, which runs behind the bass drum. The upper toms appear to "float" in midair, and everything is heavily modified (aka cut to fit) to shave as much weight as possible from my hardware case.

    In this overhead shot, the rack seems to disappear completely!

    I hope this helps with planning and setting up your new kit. Looking forward to seeing what you come up with!

    I may have asked you this in an older post but could you tell me about the platform that your drums are on?

    Of course! They are called "Dunnage Racks" made out of structural plastic. Here's the link:

    Such a great set up! I'll never come up with something as cool haha. I'll certainly be referring to these pics when I get my kit rolling.

    Of all the kits on this forum that I'd love to have a go on, yours is at the top. It just looks like so much fun.

    Agreed. No wasted space anywhere.

    Agreed. Once I get my drums out of the destroyed building they’re still in and find a new studio, I’ll 100% be looking in to this platform.

    Also, please explain the condenser mic placement. Have never seen that.

    Must’ve missed it…what happened?

    Had to pull all my stuff out of a building that was wrecked by Hurricane Ida. Drums survived (thankfully) but the building is going to need some major repairs.

    Everything is still intact. The issue now is actually getting into the building legally to retrieve all of our stuff. The entire building is considered a crime scene at the moment and no one is allowed in. As long as they give us some time to get our stuff out before they knock the building down I’ll be happy.

    Thanks! I do have fun on this kit, and although I don't use the platform for every gig, it certainly keeps things consistent. The legs were 12" high, but I found them a bit too tall, so with the help of a friend (and his miter saw), I chopped them down by about half.
    Since I set up and tear down this kit all the time, I just wanted to carry less stuff, so I ended up putting both overhead mics on one boom. The mics are in a X/Y configuration, centered above the snare. I know it's somewhat improper because the capsules are supposed to be closer together (more like a 'V' shape), but I'm still experimenting with the placement on the dual mic holder.
