I have used both the Gibraltar GSVMS, and GSSMS. I am now able to switch my kit from 4 to 6 pieces with 6 cymbals easily. The only other stands I have are a Hi-Hat, and Throne. My setup time is now equal to the Guitars. The only modification I made was shorenning the Snane drum up tube and basket tube 3 inches to accomadate both my 7X13 snare and my 5.5X14. A tubing cutter, allen wrench and 7 minutes.
