  • Setting up your V rack to fit an acoustic kick.

    Has anyone else done this? Well, it's a pain in the ass to rearange anything on the V-pro rack. but! it can be done.

    Just use the allen wrench they give you and start taking the whole thing apart, it works.

    Haven't tried it,but I'm pretty sure an acoustic set would be too heavy for this rack,which barely stands the PDs.

      Funnily enough I tried attaching my snare basket to the rack using a modified snare stand. The V-rack handled it fine, although I had to do the clamp up very tight. With a Dixon clamp it was perfectly solid.

      While the Roland clamps aren't top class, the rack arms themselves are very strong. Easily strong enough for a complete accoustic kit.

        I do believe he meant using an acoustic bass drum which you would trigger, to get a more natural look. Also, the pd-100+120's are remo acousticon shells. But I would have to agree that no, the v-drum rack probably would not hold a 12" rack tom.

        topics are fun

          actually i've done the following.

          i played in a group where there were a lot of samples/sequences running along with our live playing and i was the one that triggered them (hit a pad connected to my old TD-7 brain and via MIDI to a Kurzweil for those interested).
          because of a lack of space and tom holders/stands i mounted the 12" on the TD-7 in front of me (where you normally put it, if you're with me) and the 13" to the right like a suspended floor tom. the different pads and drums/cymbals then followed. it didn't ever give me any problems and those were my TAMA power toms so weight is not an issue.
          i have to say this set up was used maximum 5 hours at a time, i'm not saying you can put them there and leave them on forever, but ... it can be done. btw, i even used the cymbal holders for what they're really made for (yes yes, cymbals !)

          if i ever find time i'll set them up like this again and show a picture.

            wow, i never look in this fourm.

            I just wanted to do it so my bass drum would fit under the V TOMS.

            I got rid of it, it was a pain in the arse to hit my V Kick. But fun, a great waste of time

                  Hello Frank,
                  I play an acoustic set with triggers for a TD-8 brain. I am very interested in how to get sequences triggered with the TD-8 to [play along with the live music. Can you tell me how?
