  • Build the Legs: Attach the 30-inch straight bars to the large T-leg bases. This is your rack's foundation, so make sure it's sturdy!
  • Add the Crossbar: Connect the 46-inch curved bar to the straight bars using those right-angle clamps. Precision is key here, so keep them at the same height.
  • Level Your Rack: Bring in that magnetic level and make sure everything's straight. A well-leveled rack is the secret to a great drumming experience.
  • Adjust the Crossbar Height: Tailor the crossbar height to suit your setup. It's all about making it your own.
  • Lock in the Positioning: Secure everything in place with those slip-on and hinged memory locks. Trust me, you don't want your rack doing a dance while you're drumming.
