    Indeed. While it looks neat, it's a tradeoff with weight. I don't enjoy hauling more steel than needed.
    * Two feet per vertical leg vs. one. Plus the extra clamp and short post for each leg.
    * More pipe than needed for the vertical leg.

    I've only had a quick second to check out the posts but there are some awesome design ideas. The Gavin Harrison rig is super cool and I definitely will be setting up in a traditional two up non-offset fashion. Thanks and keep em coming.

    Btw, Mel- how great are the SPD-One pads? I run the Electro and Percussion versions and LOVE them.

    Simply put, this thing may be one of the most useful tools I've bought.

    Versatile, reliable and relatively simple to load files. The guys in my band love it. It's really enhanced our live performance.

    I've got a variety of uses for it:

    Percussion:
    hand clap
    tambo

    SFX:
    explosion (twilight zone)
    siren (riding the storm out)

    Backing Tracks:
    Keys for Intro and Outro to Home Sweet Home
    Keys for solo in Life's Been Good

    Wow! I legit didn’t even notice that was Gavin Harrison’s kit… I should have known with all those little cymbal arms in a row over the hats, lol.

    The backing track part is cool.

    I rarely even use my rack clamps anymore. Yamaha 3-hole recievers are great. Could easily accomplish the same with stands, but it's what I have. And set up is consistent and fast.

    Won't let me post pics from my phone. https://www.pearldrummersforum.com/s...post1854467876

    My god am I glad I play two crashes and mount my ride and rack off the kick lol I think designing a rack like this would be fun once, but the constant tinkering and tear-down/set-up would drive me nuts. My brain just does not work the way y'all's does.

    I'm typically like you, in that I don't plan, or design my setup. I just adjust, until everything feels comfy and then try to replicate from there on, whenever the kit is moved. What I'm hoping to accomplish, is a really clean set up, with a small footprint. I won't be tinkering, or tearing the rack down more than likely. For a gig, a ride, crash, hats, 1 up, 1 down, or just 1 down, a snare and kick, is all I'd likely haul. At home 2 to 3 up, 1 down, snare, kick, left side or flat ride, crash, splash, crash, ride and an ozone type, finishing move cymbal, to the extreme right, is what I'd use. Not a huge kit by big kit standards but not a small kit either. This rack is meant to be the skeleton in a studio queen type situation.

    017 has a really smart looking setup and it's along the lines of what I'm considering trying to do. I've owned a Yamaha Hex Rack and an old round tube, Pearl rack, in the past and never optimized either. I gigged heavily with the Pearl rack for about 4 mos at one point and felt like at times, that it was a really big, time saver, especially at the end of the night. Still, I won't be dragging out a 6 piece kit anymore and don't see the need for a rack, beyond it being a permanent studio based piece of gear. Justin has a really great looking gig setup and makes a case for their use in live situations though.

    Is it a virgin kick or is there a tom mount on it? I ask because using a stealth rack can get tricky when you don't mount the toms on the kick. You end up having to run the rack quite close to the kick, which may mean you have to set the feet at an undesirable angle. The picture below presents a nice option for buying some more space between the kick & rack's feet.
