I own an 8-piece Tama set (obviously with 2 bass drums) and this rack has accommodated pretty much everything I can throw (or hang) on it. It is well-constructed and extremely sturdy; no wobbling or movement with everything attached to it. Currently I have 3 toms (8", 10" and 12"), 3 crashes, a splash and a china attached to the rack. Out of personal preference I attached a side piece to it to hold my ride (I prefer my ride low and off to the right), but it could easily fit on the 850DBL with no problem. As someone else pointed out, the lack of multi-clamps might be an issue for some, but that is easily remedied since Gibraltar sells individual multi-clamps. If there was one thing I wish they WOULD have done was to include the cymbal boom attachments (SC-RBA) which free up space on the rack; they attach to the vertical bars and you can just slip a cymbal boom arm down into it. As I owned a separate Gibraltar rack that had them already I used them on the 850DBL and believe me when I say that it is a HUGE help in freeing up more space for other things, such as splashes and whatnot. But that is a minor nit. If you're a recording or touring semi-pro with a decent-size kit this is the rack for you; it's easy to set up and break down (thank goodness for memory locks!), saves you space by eliminating a ton of stands, and is sturdy enough to get you through shows and sessions with no problem.
I bought this rack not really know what to do with it or how it would look. I am so happy that I did buy it, because it made my set look completely amazing and it was easy to set up and add dishes to.
I have a Tama Starclassic Bubinga double bass kit, and ive always wanted a rack so i bought this and i gotta say... it's AMAZING! i put my 8" 10" 12" on it easy with 2 splashes 2 crashes and a ride and i still have room! i love it. Trust me, buy it!
Although i rated this 4 stars, it really is more like 3 and a half. Although i do greatly prefer this rack to stands, there are a few flaws. its not curved enough, the overall shape of the rack works out to more of a somewhat bent straight line instead of what i pictured as being "curved". another thing is that it doesnt come with nearly enough multiclamps. ive had to purchase atleast 4 more. it comes with enough multiclamps to mount either 2 toms or two cymbals but not both. you will also have to buy all the cymbal/tom mounts seperatley(but that is to be expected). there is also a big problem with space, the cymbal space is practically infinite but there is little room for toms. you could MAYBE squeeze 3 rack toms centered above the snare. its also not height adjustable and although the glorious configurations of this rack pictured on the gibraltar website are possible, they are not realistic for the average musician.
This rack is nice and sturdy I have used it before. It's easy to load up and get on the road. If you don't like the size of it, buy a bigger rack.
This is a great piece of hardware. With that said, if you have deep toms (11 piece w/ 15"x16" biggest tom), this rack is a struggle if you have short tom holder arms and/or large bass druns (24"). I could only squeeze in 5 toms (8/10/12/13/14) on top. Will need a wing for the 15".
i own a tama double bass set and i have no intention of hanging my toms on it but however i have a splash, two thin crashes, and a ride i like to hang my ride over my flor toms and this gives you no room without buying an extention and i cant find any other.
