    pearl has a nice rack for 400. its 3 sided and very balanced. if thats too much though, id still look for something 2 or 3 sided thats balanced. never go completely discount on a drum rack, it will make your drums sound better, and shorten set up and break down time. anything from 200-400 is a good price to pay.

    Too bad you're not in chicago. I am selling one for 275 but with a whole bunch of clamp attachments. Practically brand new. Used it for less than 2 months. Its a Pearl Icon 503 rack I havent been able to get rid of.

    I hate to say this but I doubt you'll get $200 for it based on what the market will bear.

    I have one also and they take up some serious realestate, don't they?

    I found that if the rack "seems" too big, I just don't take one of the side rails when gigging and I seem to do okay without it.

    Other than that, I really like the rack. Solid, stable and very cool.

    Shoot, missed the whole point of the thread.

    Making your own is probably not the best idea. You have to decide what material to use and what length and how many pieces? Is it going to be chrome, black or bare metal, etc...? Then what are you going to use to integrate the components.



    What are you going to do for clamping mechanisms? If you buy them you might as well get a rack that comes with them.

    Buy a rack already made. No tooling or desiging or building required.

    I think it can be done....very easily....all you need is duct tape, right?




    ....seriously though, I agree with others, it could be done...but it would take a lot of work and measuring....special equipment.....so much easier...and in the long run....cheaper....just to buy one...

    I don't know what they go for in England right now, but I got a 2 sided rack for $250 a few weeks ago, along with five clamps. With the world's economy suffering, people are selling gear to pay the bills, so they're very motivated to sell. The trick is to get buyers and sellers together to help each other. Unfortunately, there are a lot more sellers than buyers right now.

    its like this.. its much more valuable to a drummer to have something he can use that works and pay a little more or whatever than to sit around waiting for your custom projects to pull through. id seriously try for either a used one or a retail one that doesnt cost too much. but they will take up a bit of space, so bear that in mind also. but some of em are tiny yet sturdy, and carry easy because of it, and those are the ones your looking for.

    i would go 4 a gibralter v rack just the basic at first than u can expand with anything u want bassicly. u can have it wrap around mount all your cymbols on it. They make it so easy to set u too. no hasseling trying to fit the leggs of all your stands into the puzzel u had them in last. Id say its a good investment
