    Default Attack Racks too Gimicky?

    For those of you who hate racks, this ones gonna get your "goat". Pipe diameter for the clamps are the same as the current offerings out on the market (1.5") so no need to purchase "custom" made clamps. Maybe for a certain genre this look would work right?

    hahahahahahahaha Here's one for Spaz!!!! I love it.


    But as for the rack I think that thing is the dumbest ugliest thing ever..... what in the heck is going on with that!?
    You're so limited to tom placement with such a crazy rack gimmick design.
    And did you see the pricing?! Doesn't come cheap!

    No thanks! I'll stick with PDP/DW or my Girbraltar racks.

    I think it’s pretty stupid that you’d have to have your cymbal stands perpendicular to the rack. I’m surprised you can even mount toms to it.

    Nope. You can't put lipstick on that pig.

    If you look really close I see what looks like Pearl Optimount tom holders.

    I can't stand all the silly cymbal arm angles and crazy tom mount positioning.
    Guess I'm just use to clean and this is more abstract out of the box.

    I don't know. . . . .I think it would look better and be more versatile if the rack would square off at the last bend on top, have it horizontal so you can utilize clamp space better. The cross looks stupid to me IMO.

    +1 on getting rid of that stupid X, I also don't like how the sides are fixed in position. Coming to think of it, that rack would look better in a dumpster.

    If you band's name is Byzantine, this rack is perfect. Otherwise, not so much.
