Stands. They give me the flexibility I need to be as OCD with my setup as I want lol. Plus I don't like racks......well, on women, yes. Drums, no lol.

DW drums (8x10, 9x12, 11x14, 13x16, 18x22), Zildjian cymbals, 2 DW and OCDP snares, Vater/3drumsticks drumsticks, Roland electronics, Audix mics, Remo heads.

Stands because I believe they give me a better set-up. I just don't like Racks. I had both the Pearl which boxed me in and made small venues impossible, and a Gibraltar tube hung from 2 crash stands on either side of my kit. That was alright, but I simplified me set-up and the image of the Rack in the music circles I move in has generally been retired to that of Hair Rock. Yes I would be crucified if I showed up with a Rack.
You can own the greatest drum ever made, but it won't change how well you can play it!
