    Default Hardware questions

    Hi there
    I'm excited to be apart of your forum. I have a few hardware related questions.
    I have a rare(ish) maybe? Set of arbiter flats lite drums. Now my question is,
    Do you think I could use an electronic drum rack to mount these? I'm a fairly light player and space is a concern. Also are those 3 way multi clamps easy to find anymore? Thanks all!

    Welcome to DC, JDS1979......................IMO, if you aren't moving the kit regularly, the ekit rack should be able to hold the flats...................I'm not sure how much they weigh, but there isn't much to them.

    Good luck

    Thanks for the welcome. The arbiter kit is beyond light. It's really strange to say the least. Really good sound. Anyway, yeah I really wouldn't be hauling it around, maybe to some recording jobs and jams that's about it. (I play bass in a top 40 dance band) go figure lol. I'm a drummer though but go where I'm needed. I was thinking something like a Roland or the very light Yamaha racks, of course, not sure if they are available without the drums. Thanks again!

    I doubt you'll be able to get the rack without the drums...but that might not be so bad, as you can keep your drums stored and practice on the ekit. So you'll have one less thing to pack up when you go to a gig. For example, I got a second snare stand as part of a practice kit i bought, in the end i decided to keep it simply because i got annoyed always having to set it back up for my ekit...it doesn't save you lots of time, but still helpful.

    Yeah it's probably going to be a tough find. I have some dw 9000 arms too that weigh a ton. Haha only using two though. I figure it would distribute the weight fairly evenly.

    I think you'll be ok if you just keep them in one place and not set up/tear down often.

    That being said....I have seen E-kit racks (only) on Craigslist from time to time in PHX. I've seen them on Ebay too.

    Can't post a link....but search New Simmons SD9K Drum Rack ONLY right now and you'll see one for 70 bucks.

    Welcome to the forum JDS! I had to Google the kit and after looking at the set up, I agree with those who have posted; an ekit rack would be ideal. As far as finding clamps, I think Gibraltar may have something you can use?

    Wow look at that! Cool! Yeah I have the version without the rack then. My toms are mounted off of cymbal stands with universal clamps. Never knew that they had a rack version. Totally neat! Thanks for the replies and welcomes

    That's the one. Except I use a piccolo snare drum. Pretty neat kit. One day I'll swap it for a pacific 4 pc. (Hope)

    As far as clamps, if you are talking about the ones that attach to a cymbal stand and have 2 more holes for mounting cymbal or tom arms, Gibraltar and Pearl both make them. Yamaha has a version that fits into a bass drum or cymbal stand base.
