My drums were at a building at which I could only practice 2 times a week. There was a show coming up (3 man drum off) I needed to practice so I designed and built a drumset. At first I was just going to use old heads and just throw it together to have something to hit. Im happy with it’s tone and the overall outcome. If I made another one I would use something other than pine 2×4’s. heres a link to what it sounds like,
For some reason I had a hard time loading this in internet explorer but it did load in google chrome. ANyway here it is.
The rims are laminates glued together and wraped around a jig. The shells are a bunch of long trapezoids that fit together. The lugs are just basically chunks of wood with bolts as inerds.
Overall, very fun project. I learned a lot and would like to make another (out of some quality wood). P.S. making a drumset like most things is a whole lot cheaper than buying one! Thanks for reading.
