  • Rack question

    Hi, I have the V-Session Set, but really hate the red rack! Anybody have a different rack, preferably black, that they use and enjoy? I found this site, http://www.1ie-drums.com/hardware-pedals.htm that selss racks (scroll down a bit on the page to see them.) Anybody have this one? Are there any others out there? Sorry if this has been asked before, I am new here. Thanks!

      Or you could buy some 38mm steel- or aluminium pipes and replace the original pipes. That would save you a lot of money. I bought 6 Gibraltar T-clamps and bought some steel pipes from a local hardware store. The rack costed me less than $100.

        If you have quite a lot of money to spend, try this place here: http://www.drumframe.com
        The V2L is the best rack system out there, period. It's also the most expensive. I got mine yesterday, and have finished setting it up and putting my pads on it, and this baby is as stable as a concrete wall, plus the throne and the reclined position are more comfy than my sofa.
        There's also a budget model, the VX1, distributed by Kaman, which is just as good as the custom model. Dunno what the price will be though.

                I'm interested in the Kaman version. I can only find info on the drumframe site. Anyone know about price and availability?

                  Dunno.
                  Drop Drumframe an email, and they'll probably tell you within a day or two, they're normally quite quick to respond.

                    Check out www.carbonlite.com - pricey, but black (and ultra-light)...

                      Mcconaghy, how portable is that rack? How small does it fold (does it fold??) down?
                      It looks incredible!
                      When you say a lot of money... give us a ball park figure. (please)
                      I'm glad to see someone out there is thinking 'innovation' rather than just re-inventing the wheel over and over.

                      , plenty of , and , , triggered acoustics, , and a plethora of PA blah blah freakin blah...I mean does anyone care about the specifics of pedals, speakers, processors, hardware or anything that I'm using?? :confused: Hmmm, maybe this is an appropriate place to mention that I tried out a new cymbal stand the other day...

                        The DrumFrame disassembles to the size of a regular 3-sided Gibraltar rack. The base comes apart in 3 pieces, the throne does as well, fitting in a small hardware case. There's an assemply tutorial on their site, assembly looks complicated, but it takes about 5 minutes longer to set up than a regular rack.
                        Altogether I have 2 SKB hardware cases for my stuff, 2 small ones, one for the base and throne, one for the holders, cymbal-arms and assorted hardware gadgetry, and a large one for the rack assembly.
                        As I said, it's expensive. I paid $1700 for the whole she-bang, with a custom clamp for mounting the KD-120. Without cases.
