    Comments about Gibraltar GSVMS Stealth Vertical Mounting System:

    The GSSMS Stealth Side Mounting System and The GSSMS Stealth Vertical Mounting System are the only Rack system add-on you will need to get rid of the reverse umbrella clutter stands. It's functional, practical, and very stable and sturdy. Make sure to get some extra clamps and memory locks to complete your kit. In the gig, the set up time is almost the same as with the regular stands but the space it requires is a lot smaller, your bandmates will appreciate the available space for their amps and speakers. A MUST HAVE!!!

    Comments about Gibraltar GSVMS Stealth Vertical Mounting System:

    The stealth rack is great if you have 1 or two rack toms AND a crash that you want to mount, but I really only had 1 crash to mount and it turns out this unit is way overkill for that.

    Also they market the holder for the snare basket as being "low profile", but it was actually higher than my DW snare stand. I have a 13x7 snare so it is kind of a problem for me. I could cut the down tube of my snare basket but that is a modification I'd rather not make.

    I probably will give this stealth rack to another drummer friend of mine. She has a 14x5.5" snare, so the snare basket height shouldn't be as much of an issue. She also plays 1 rack 1 floor with a crash and a splash mounted with the rack tom. She is kind of a small person, so I imagine that with some memory locks this will make setup and tear down much quicker and easier.

    Comments about Gibraltar GSVMS Stealth Vertical Mounting System:

    Gibraltar did a really nice job on this product. It looks great, easy to assemble, disassemble and transport. I'm giving it the highest rating although they could have thrown in a few extra memory locks. Other than that, it works perfectly and very stable.

        • Quick Repeatable Setup

        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!

            By ROGERPEREZ83

            from las vegas nv

            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.
