Now, like every other drummer out there who doesn’t own a drum rack, you probably went on Amazon.com and saw a steep price tag of $489.00 and thought to yourself, “Why do I need this?” Well here’s why, “The Pearl DR503C ICON is a 3-Sided Drum Rack which features all of the components of the original DR503, only with curved bars.” This is coming directly from its product description and it only weighs 45.8lbs! This means that with the Icon’s square tubing, you can lock a pipe clamp at a specific spot where it is comfortable, and mount all of your clamps to the bar at where you see fit. Then from here on in, you don’t even need to remove these clamps during tear-down or setup. The only clamps you remove are the pipe joints to disassemble the rack body for travel.
Say we have a 6 piece kit, that is, 4 rack toms, a snare and a bass drum. Now, if we were to use stands for this kit, we would have to have a minimum of 2-4 stands just for our rack toms. Each stand can be anywhere from $50.00-$75.00. This already brings us to roughly $200.00, and if we add in each multi clamp for the rack toms, that brings us up to $300.00. We also may have multiple cymbals in the setup, let’s say a ride, three crashes, 2 chinas and a splash. If we mount our two crashes to our two cymbal stands that are holding up our rack toms, we would then still need to worry about our ride, chinas and splash. If we got a stand for each of these cymbals, our new total would be $500.00, and if we added up its total hardware weight, we would be lugging around 60lbs worth of gear, and thats not even adding in all of the multi clamps!
Besides the Icon’s portability, it is also extremely rugged and strong. Its pipe clamps are slip-proof due to their square construction, and can support heavy mounts with ease. The curved aesthetic of the rack also helps with ergonomics, and allows for a more comfortable feel behind the kit. Jeff B, who plays a large 10-piece kit, put it perfectly in his review of the Icon DR503C rack. Jeff says, “This rack is awesome! I'm finally able to put things where I want them, especially my toms and roto Toms. My speed and accuracy have improved because of this. Get a few PCX200'S to really get the positioning you want. I have six and use them all. This rack is excellent quality. If you're looking for a rack look no further.” In other words, the DR503C rack has the ability to not only lighten your load, and setup time, but also improve your performance as Jeff points out above.
My point here is that there are better alternatives for drummers who play large kits. They shouldn’t have to deal with the hassle of setting up stands, and trying to position their multi-clamps at the right heights and angles. These burdens should only be carried by those who play smaller set ups with minimum hardware. The DR503C Icon rack eliminates all set up hassle, and allows for a consistent, slip-proof set up that has an ergonomic feel, and a sleek look to it. It is a must have for drummers with large setups because of its durability, portability and affordable price range. Rock on Pearl!
The extra bar length is just enough to give increased flexibility for my 6-piece, single kick setup without feeling overly large.
The only reason I don't give this 5 stars is that it was advertised as "like new" but came with significant cosmetic damage. No impact on its performance though
I currently have a 7 piece Pearl Masters BRX kit, 9 cymbals, and a pair of remote hi-hats on the rack, and could probably fit another handful of drums and at least twice as many cymbals. It doesn't move at *all* when I play. It's as sturdy as they come.
Amazon's price on this is always better than Musician's Friend or Guitar Center, which is awesome. I got a great price, and with Amazon Prime, the shipping was free and I got it in two days. Guitar Center wanted $49 to ship this, because of the weight.
If you're looking for a rack for your kit, the 503C is where it's at. The 503 (the one without the curved bars) is probably just as awesome, but I opted for the curved bars as they have a more natural feel to them on my kit.
