Good Lord, racks are expeeeensive! I'm in the process of buying a house and will FINALLY have somewhere, other than the bands practice spot, to set up a kit. Since this kit will be set up and stay set up I thought I would make it a biggun. Double bass, a multitude of toms and cymbals. For this I figured a rack would be the way to go. After looking them over on ebay, gc.com and mf.com im finding that just the cross bar is $200+, I think side bars were $150+. I don't know why but these prices seem absolutely crazy to me.

Well...what would all the stands you would need cost??? Some heavy duty stands can add up real quick!

New, a monster kit rack is going to be $1500+ after you add all the clamps and boom arms.
You should be able to get some good used stuff cheap like Dose found. You just need to find 2 or 3
of the those deals for a monster setup.

I suppose I was hoping that a rack would be a more convenient, cheaper solution than a ton of stands. I also somehow missed the listings that Dose linked.

I remember seeing pictures of guys who just made their own with the correct sized tubing and only had to buy the clamps and cymbal arms,
