The Nitro kit is just a tad low for me. Can I change the legs out to make it taller?

I read about someone using “bed frame risers” to raise it up 6” or so.

Hi TJ,

Thanks for posting.

The Nitro Mesh Kit is officially supported with the included hardware, so I wouldn't be able to make any suggestions for third-party legs to use with the kit. However, there are washers on the legs that can be unscrewed to adjust the height of the kit. Have you tried adjusting these?

Yes you can build a simple Riser by taking two pieces of 3/4 inch ply and then use 12 tennis balls equally spaced out in a 4 by 3 grid between the two plys with velcro on one half to secure the balls to one piece of the plywood then through bolt the four corners using flat heads on the bottom piece of ply so it ends up being slush and then use nuts and washers on the top piece of ply to secure the sandwich. Now through a small area rug or carpet scrap over the top piece of plywood that matches the dimensions and secure it with screws nails or glue around the edge. This not only makes a 4" riser but also a bass kick isolator from the floor.

50 x 60 or 60 x 72 seems a good size

Kick is only isolated if you raise your seat and the pedal on this platform but that's not the intention here so the shape of this ends up being an L or U with your throne and bass pedal sitting on the room floor but the drum rack sitting on the riser
