Definition and background:
A "drum rack" is a metal assembly that surrounds the drumset and holds the top parts of cymbal stands as well as percussion holders. Its purpose is to save room underneath where multiple drum stands can often crowd the drum platform. It is also used by drummers to make setups easier. Pro drummers will often use a number system to number their stands and racks.
The physical setting of a head in the direction toward or away from the tape, therefore affecting how much pressure is applied to the head by the tape. 2) Short for Equipment Rack, a cabinet with rails (or free standing rails) that have holes to accept screws at standard spaces and used to house outboard gear.
