Already 3 years I use this rack Gibraltar high quality local and in concert.
Personally I have the central support GRS400C on which two toms and a cymbal and an extension on which GRS150C 3 cymbals.

Note: the two vertical legs of the rack and the extension can accommodate a boom cymbal through a system called "interface tube / boom" (reference PGI RBA). Very convenient but a pity that this system is not standard on the racks at this price.
The photo in my profile was taken before I gives me this system.

Advantages:

- And solid-solid stability
- Easy to assemble
- Rings memories practices
- Look great with curved bars
- Dimensions: no need to lug 10pieds cymbals
- Possibility to play on a bass drum non-breakthrough since everything is suspended

Disadvantages:

- Dimensions: once mounted, the beast takes a lot of room, forget if it's to play in a space too small
- No cover provided to transport the bars
Quick Tips for a first cut:

For setting a rock-solid, do not tighten the clamps much GRSRA (those between the vertical legs and horizontal bars) make sure that all the feet touch the soil well and that the bars are parallel to the floor Tighten firmly and all the clamps.
Then place the bass drum, followed by the tom toms and supendus bass, pedal bass drum, the snare, the hi-hat and cymbals. That remains is to refine the positions and voila! Are still rings to place memories to keep your favorite position retrievable within minutes!
With a little practice, 10 minutes is sufficient to mount a rack kit.
Compare against other racks

I prefer it to the rack Tama (more stable, more accessories, cheaper) and Pearl DR503 rack (which has however an extension of about 60 euros more for the price difference) which are square bars which have the disadvantage of not be able to choose clamps other than those of the brand. Yamaha racks are also very well made but the clamps are less friendly to me.
Also note that for Gibraltar, Tama, Yamaha (all racks round horizontal bar) most of the accessories, clamps diverse and varied are compatible.

I would do without this choice problem!
