OVERVIEW

An aluminum rack built to accommodate all size of drum setup.

Zildjian has designed a drum rack based on designs similar to those used in machine equipment and airframe design. This rack is both lighter and stronger than conventional steel drum racks, and perfect for both acoustic and electric percussion setups. The acoustic / electric AE Rack System is designed around a patented hinge system that enables it to be quickly folded for ease of setup and transport.

The rack includes a cable channel that allows the user to feed up to 12 XLR cables through both the vertical and horizontal bars, thereby providing a complete cable management system that conceals and protects important cabling. Each AE Rack System includes 6 patent-pending glass filled ABS multi-clamps. The AE Rack Multi-Clamp fits most manufacturer's mounting accessories ranging from 3/8" to 3/4" in diameter and can be positioned on either side of the bar with an easy and solid one-touch tightening mechanism. Fits up to 20" Bass Drum.

      Comments about Zildjian Gen16 Acoustic-Electric Rack:

      I'm such a Zildjian fanatic, I don't think any other cymbals compare. Now with the advent of the GEN 16 Rack..I bought the short but I think I should buy the tall as well (they come in 2 models)Set ups and break downs are now minutes. I almost bought the Gibralter Spyder but it was so much stuff and never really clear what you were getting until you did the math and components were expensive..This AIRCRAFT DESIGN is THE BOMB! The Spyder was like you design the aircraft...Zildjian built a solution..Plus with LED Strip Lights and FX lighting I have added that looks TIGHT and will remain mounted by the very construction and rack width aircraft design. Zildjian hits it out of the park AGAIN! JoJo Johns

            Comments about Zildjian Gen16 Acoustic-Electric Rack:

            This is a great rack. It's solid yet lightweight, and I love how the cable management system hides the cables to make a nice clean look during shows. It's so solid that I was even able to even make somewhat of a second tier using 2 of my old Pearl Icon rack legs. As the rack sits, it supports 10 and 12" rack toms, 14, 16, and 18" crashes, 20" ride, 20" china, 2 Roland PDX 100 pads, a Roland TD-30 module, and a cowbell. I also love how the multi-clamps can quickly detach with the hardware left in. I can set up and tear down so much faster. The rack folds nicely, and when I put the clamps back on (just as quickly) my hardware is back in place exactly where I want it.

            Before buying you should know at the time of writing this review, Zildjian has sent the wrong short rack specs to Musician's Friend, and so the product description is not correct. To clarify, the clearance you get with this rack is about 23.5". This rack WILL NOT fit a 24" bass drum. Zildjian claims it fits up to a 20" kick. I almost returned this because my kick is 22", but it does clear. The bigger problem might be having enough clearance for rack toms to be mounted over the kick. Luckily for me I have tons of extra drum hardware and could make it work, but not without difficulty. Now that it's set up though, it's awesome!

            I would conditionally recommend this rack to other drummers. It's excellent with any electronic kit, acoustic kits with 20" kicks or shorter, or kits with 22" kicks IF you either a. have tom arms that will either clear the kick or have excellent flexibility in adjusting tom position (my ball and socket tom arms work great so that I'm able to mount the tom arms off to each side of the kick and then position the toms so that they're still close to each other and the right height for me), b. mount your toms directly into the kick drum, or c. use a setup in which your rack toms are not directly over the bass drum.

            Lastly I just want to say that Musician's Friend provided excellent support when I called about the incorrect description on the website. They were fully willing to take the product back at their own expense, and were friendly on the phone. They even sent me a return shipping label, but then I decided to open the box to see if I could make it work with my 22" kick, and I'm glad I did.

              Have been wanting a rack system for quite some time.When I saw this one, for the price thought I'd give it a try. Best investment I ever made. Very sturdy rack with enough clamps for all my needs. Very easy to set up and take down !!

                    I just set up my Gretsch kit using the Gen16 rack. It's very sturdy and gave me tom and cymbal mounting options that I never had with stands. I wish I would have gone to a rack system years ago. It will also save time in set up and tear down after gigs.
