OVERVIEW

Removes the clutter of hardware and stands to showcase your drum set.

Gibraltar's Stealth Vertical Mounting System (VMS) takes a minimalist approach to mounting hardware by showcasing the kit and removing the cluttered appearance of bulky tripods and rack bars spanning the bass drum. Best of all, Stealth VMS means you have less hardware to break down and carry after the gig.

The Stealth VMS creates a low-profile vertical mounting plane for mounted toms and the snare, creating a rock-solid foundation for any setup. This innovative mounting system works with virtually any kit configuration and can utilize existing tom and snare mounting hardware no matter what brand or size kit you play.

GSVMS comes with 3/4", 7/8", and 1" adjustable sleeves that accommodate most brands tom mount and snare basket.

FEATURES
  • Low-profile distinctive appearance
  • Small footprint fits on any stage
  • Accommodates double-bass drum pedals and deep snare drums
  • No tripods. Creates a clean and uncluttered stage appearance

      Comments about Gibraltar GSVMS Stealth Vertical Mounting System:

      Sturdy, just as you would expect from Gibraltar. It makes set up the snare, two rack toms, and a crash cymbal easy and repeatable. Although the kit is more compact with the toms on the kick, the kick can be set at a more natural angle and both toms can be reached with equal ease with this rack. In addition, to my ears the kick sounds cleaner when its virgin.

      Four stars because I had to buy 4 memory locks for for the rack itself for quick and repeatable set up. It should have come with them.

      However, MF gets FIVE STARS because right after I bought it there was a price-drop. I called and told them and without me even asking they credited back the difference. MF is my #1 source for all my musical needs, and have worked hard to keep my business.

      Comments about Gibraltar GSVMS Stealth Vertical Mounting System:

      The Stealth Rack exceeded my expectations. It is much sturdier than a tripod mount, and sturdier than I expected. Set up is very fast if you put memory locks on the down-tubes of the snare and tom stands. My only complaint is that I had to purchase 4 rack memory locks to quickly and repeatably set up rack when it's torn down for transport.

      Set up for a five-piece with two crashes and a ride is a breeze: set up the rack and mount your snare drum, toms, and one cymbal. Since these are all perfectly indexed to each other, you only need to fit in the kick and floor tom, two cymbal stands (one for the other crash and a ride) and one hi hat stand.

      Less to carry, faster and easier to set up, sturdier than tripod and better than toms mounted on the kick (in my opinion) – what's not to like?

          I haven't really used it much yet, but it is really simple to set up. I already feel like it's going to be much easier to position my snare/toms/bass where I want them, as well as a crash cymbal. Also, it's compatible with all the other gibraltar gear, so I foresee expanding it in the future.

          Definitely Get this Rack System

          Comments about Gibraltar GSVMS Stealth Vertical Mounting System:

          This is the smartest rack on the market.
          I purchased this rack to replace a Pearl Icon curved rack and it was the best hardware purchase I have made in years. The compact, low profile footprint is perfect for serving it's purpose and not hiding the drums with a bunch of metal. The curved cross bar to accomodate double pedal linkages is a stoke of genius. I also purchased the side mounting system to have something on the right. Perfect for that side of the kit with the same benefits.

          less is more! perfect placement!

          Comments about Gibraltar GSVMS Stealth Vertical Mounting System:

          this is the best purchase I have made for my kit so far hands down. I have always used pearl hardware in the past and was intrigued by this set up. I have a pearl reference series limited edition kit with a 13" rack tom and 16 and 18" floor toms so I really have no need for a rack that goes over my bass drum. This VMS not only shows off my prized kit, but it also protects it since it doesn't let the snare hit the rack tom or the bass drum hoop because it eliminated the free standing snare stand. I used my yamaha snare basket with one of the provided sleeves and it fit perfectly. I also bought a gibraltar platform with the tube already on it and mounted my rack tom and a boom arm for my 16" crash and now my set up time is cut in half since i don't have to mess with a bunch of extra cymal, tom, and snare stands. I am planning to get the side mounting system to eliminate the cymbal stand clutter on the right side of my kit. but this if you are considering it! built rock solid! I also did a youtube review if you care to check it out. look up my name on this review.

          Gibraltar GSVMS Stealth Vertical Mounting System

          By gjones

          from Rochester, NY

          Comments about Gibraltar GSVMS Stealth Vertical Mounting System:

          I am very particular about being able to set up my set so that it is always the same. Everything in its spot. This system allows me to do that. I also purchased the ultra adjust snare basket and it also works very well, just takes time to get the initial setup right. The major advantage of the GSVMS is the repeatability of having the toms and snare always in the correct spacial relationship. The Toms never hit the snare or the bass drum and the snare never dings the toms. After you set the GSVMS up everything else sets up easily around it. I used to use the DW9000 tom stand and DW5000snare stand. I still use the DW9000 top hafe of the Tom stand with the GSVMS. Overall I don't think I gained any advantage in lowering the weight of my setup. What I did gain is a much easier repeatable setup that is strong and dependable. Wish they made a case for it.

          Fantastic!!!

          Comments about Gibraltar GSVMS Stealth Vertical Mounting System:

          I recently purchased this along with the GSSMS side unit. It works great, looks great and is rock solid. Much better than a full sized rack in my opinion. It cleaned up the look of my kit immensely and gave it a smaller footprint. This rack is ideal for a 5 piece with the rack toms set up to the left of the bass drum (typewriter style) but works well with any setup. Completely satisfied customer here!

          Comments about Gibraltar GSVMS Stealth Vertical Mounting System:

          I purchased this to clean up my setup and make for simpler, more efficient set-up and take-down. Let me say, it works like a charm! Once you take the time to get it just the way you want it, it's lightning fast to repack and set-up. Very sturdy, high quality materials. A little heavy but it beats the weight of multiple tripods. Creates clean appearance. Works well with double pedals as well. A must-have for gigging drummers.
