        Ginger Baker made his own drum kit once, but it was broken during a fight he had with Jack Bruce back in their Cream days.

            Is this a new one? I remember you had a thread a while back of one you built.

            Either way, it's dope! :thumb:

              You might be right. Here's the one you guys haven't seen, then. I've only built 2 kits but I have built quite a few snares.





              In the last photo you can see the inside of the drum(top left). I haven't finished cutting the insides yet so you can get an idea of how the wood is oriented during gluing. These shells are over an inch thick! Needless to say this heavy kit doesn't leave the house often. Even after I cut the inner cylinder round, they will still be very thick.

                  haha

                  I swear if you ask me that was one of the funniest movies I've ever seen -period. And when Will Ferrell desecrates the drums -

                    That looks like top notch craftsmanship to me.

                    My brother-in-law is a drummer. In the Sixties and Seventies, he had a big Rogers double bass, six high tom, four floor tom set. For a while he used an electronic drum kit because it was easier to take to gigs. He has switched back to an acoustic set (not as big as his old Rogers kit) because he just likes it better than the electronic one. He likes it well enough to lug it to gigs.

                      Thanks guys - it was a lot of sweat and work but it was worth it.

                      Hey Sam I have an electronic kit too - and tried it live a couple times for it's lightweight convenience etc. but I too just didn't like it as much as the acoustic drums. Acoustic drums have infinite expression possibilities and of course a natural feel.

                      The maple kit at the top of the thread is much lighter than the oak kit so it's not bad at all to lug the maples around.

                            Just amazing, puts my big ugly electronic drum kit to absolute shame. Beautiful craftsmanship my friend, enjoy them, I absolutely love drumming.

                              What do you use to cut the insides down? Does that change the sound a lot?

                              I'm a bass player I don't know these things
