      I recieved this as a Christmas gift. Before I recieved this rack, my kit took up a 7' by 5' space. Now it takes up a fraction of the space. This rack really frees up the floor and does what a drum rack is supposed to do: allow you to place your gear where you want it and reduce the size of your setup's footprint. In order to accommodate all of my cymbals, I had to purchase 2 more vertical bars, extra T-legs and a few more clamps. It currently has 2 rack toms, 4 crashes, 2 rides, 2 splashes, 2 chinas and a 10" side snare mounted to it and is solid as a rock. I'm a very aggressive player, and so far I have never had anything collapse or come undone while playing. My only complaints about this rack are that the side extensions that come with it are far too short for my needs. For those only mounting one or two cymbals to them, then they should be big enough. However, if you have a plethora of cymbals, you may have to order bigger side extensions. I have 3 mounted on my right side and its extremely crowded. I'll be ordering two 36" side extensions to accommodate my gear. Also, the T-legs that come with it are fixed and cannot be adjusted. It's not a big issue, but it is inconvenient, especially if you want to create a custom rack setup. Other than that, this rack is a great piece of equipment and I highly recommend it to anyone wanting to clean up their setup. One other thing, even though the description states that the rack is 36" tall, as pointed out by another reviewer, its only 30" tall. This doesn't bother me since I play with my toms and cymbals low. I have just enough clearance between my rack toms and my bass drum. Those with bigger toms and bass drums may need to purchase taller vertical bars. Anyways, if you're wanting to clean up your setup, get this. You won't regret it.

      Short Rack!
      The description says "Basic Curved Rack" When I go look at the description of the "Basic Curved Rack" It says it is 36 inches tall. So I ordered it expecting the "Basic Curved Rack" at "36 inches tall. However this Rack is only 30" tall. I suppose it will fit a childs drum kit fine by there is not enough room for my toms to clear the bass drum. Also the feet on this rack are set in by the manufacture with rivets so they are not removable or interchangable with other rack parts.
      I had to spend additional money to order pipe & feet to make a "Basic Curved Rack".
      They should state in the description that this rack is 30 inches tall so others don't have to go through the unpleasant experience that I went through.

            This rack is great quality. I use multiple drummers regularly and with a couple of extra clamps and accessory posts, changing the configuration a little is a snap. Keeps clutter from stands down. I really like it especially for semi-permanent setup.

              Comments about Gibraltar Rack Starter Pack with Curved Wings:

              I've been drumming for 25 years, and have always wanted a Gibraltar rack for as long as I can remember. I have owned a Pearl rack, which was great, but horrible to look at. Black square plain jane. This rack is a beautiful, and functional addition to ANY kit. And forget "starter pack"..this set up has it all! I did order an extra T-leg for the ride side curve bar to prevent sagging that I've read about, but that only gives me more beautiful rack to look at! I bought this "used" online here, and with free shipping, it was a STEAL! I almost feel bad?! This rack looks brand new, even came with stickers and the sealed tool and extra square bolt. If this was used, it must have been an in store demo. This arrived in 3 days, and I ordered on a weekend. You have blown me away, and earned my business! Thanks!

              This rack is great for the money. The quality is great and it is ready to go with side bars,tom clamps and two cymbal stands. You can't get a better deal. I set mine up in one quarter the time it used to take me to set up my drums cymbal stands hihat stands etc.
              I configured mine with a DW cable style hihat stand and also took an old snare stand and clamped the upper portion for the floor tom and I set up in no time at all. Only thing extra to set up now is my snare stand and bass drum. It has changed my giggin life.

                  What an excellent way for the gigging drummer to lose most to all if his/her stands!

                  This rack system greatly reduced the footprint of my kit.

                  Soon I'll be able to enjoy the ease of a rack system the next time we go out!

                  There is truely unlimited possibilities and configurations with this system that make sthe time spent setting it up, well worth it.

                  Exactly what you need.

                  Comments about Gibraltar Rack Starter Pack with Curved Wings:

                  I've had this rack for a couple years now, and it's really the perfect rack for anyone who could need it. All the clamps hold solid, with or without memory locks (but if you have them, there is NO chance of movement). I have about 10 cymbals mounted across mine, and when I get my new kit I'll have the toms up there too. On a solid flat surface with the legs tightened, it won't shake the slightest bit, but if you play on a drum rug on top of a carpet, and you're a heavy hitter as I am, you may find that it sways a tad from the soft ground, but that's to be expected. I have my three heaviest cymbals mounted on one of the tiny little side wings, and it still holds up perfectly. All in all, it's a perfect rack for anyone who needs expansion and an easier way to hold their kit together.

                  By NorthernDrums

                  from Minnesota

                  Comments about Gibraltar Rack Starter Pack with Curved Wings:

                  I bought the Gibraltar Rack Starter Pack with the wings out of sheer necessity for an efficient way to set up and tear down without setting up 5+ stands. Not only does this rack support the weight of my 5 cymbals and rack toms, but it does so without rocking or shifting. This thing also has a great stage presence during a show. The only questionable quality concern that I have had about this equipment is that the metal where the clamps were bound tight has indented a little bit. Otherwise, this rack is a cheap, must-have for the gigging drummer, and it has the potential for you to expand upon it without spending a fortune to get the foundation. Great product, great investment, hands down.

                  A few minor problems, but overall amazing

                  Comments about Gibraltar Rack Starter Pack with Curved Wings:

                  Ok there are alot of advantages and a few disadvantages to this rack. Advantages: The hardware is well made; It can hold a lot of weight and I can't imagine any way of the hardware ever breaking. It is easy to transport, and having memory locks gives you the ability to have your drum set up be EXACTLY like it was every time you reassemble the rack. Disadvantages: it is wobbly, but this can be fixed if you add another leg using the bottom part of a regular cymbal stand and connect it to the rack. Another thing is that the main frame of the rack becomes dented when you attach more hardware to it. Overall, these are minor disadvantages, and for this price, this is a great rack.
