Although racks always appealed to me unless you are famous enough that someone else builds your drum kit every night they are a pain in the unterseite. The stealth rack is marketed as a rack for people who don't like racks. Really it shoud be marketed as a rack for people who don't like tripod stands all over the floor and don't like spending hours setting up and dismantling your kit. That's me. I love this rack because it allows me to put my snare basket in one end ( I can leave the legs at home ) and on the other end I can mount toms and a cymbal arm - so 3 stands gone already. It is super sturdy, easy to set up and you'll know that your gear is in exactly the same place every time. I like the fact the that snare basket end has a narrower foot meaning more space for my double pedal and hi hat stand. I also like the fact that the connecting tube is deliberately bent so that it will accommodate the connecting rod of your double kick pedal. I also like the fact that it is practically invisible so people don't know you are using a rack and won't despise you as much ( just kidding Terry Bozzio) . I also like the fact that gibraltar give away 3 different sizes of plastic inserts so that it will accommodate multiple tube sizes from different manufacturers. My yamaha stuff all works fine. All in all a very clever piece of kit that takes up minimal floor space and minimal space in your hardware case but is as sturdy as a rock. If you are thinking of getting one - you won't be dissappointed.
