Developed in 1983 with legendary Toto drummer Jeff Porcaro, Pearl’s original DR-1 Drum Rack was the first free-standing, frame-based drum support system available. Today, in celebration of 35 years of pioneering the drum rack, Pearl’s ICON (short for Independent CONtrol,) Rack systems are being greatly expanded with a new selection of clamps and accessories.
All new pre-configured single and three-sided rack packages and individual ICON components have been upgraded to include a rotating support foot.
In addition, eight new accessory clamps have been developed for the slip-free ICON square rack rail and round support pipe; dramatically increasing the level of set-up flexibility and function variety.
To showcase the possibilities of these new additions to the ICON cannon, Pearl will launch an online player resource and idea center of ICON Rack Recipes; featuring step-by-step instructions on how to get the most from existing and available Pearl Rack parts.
“So many players see Rack building as not only a set-up option for drum and cymbals, but also a way to showcase their own individual visual style,” states Pearl Combo Marketing Manager, Kevin Packard. “The new Rack Recipe resource shows not only the possibilities we have found in our own in-house experiments, but will hopefully serve as inspiration for drummers and technicians to build and share their own ideas.”
