The Question is: Where Do You Take it for a Tune Up?
This photo is pulled from an 1977 Slingerland Drum Advertisement for their custom wrap kit, where they’d make shell wraps with whatever image you wanted on them. I’m not sure if some clever drummer out there actually made a Coca Cola Kit, but the photo sure is cool!
This amazing home made Drumkit Chandelier manages to achieve both a modern and vintage look at the same time! While I can’t seem to locate the original source for this photo or much background on the project, it was reportedly made by Matt Ludwig.
