I’ve posted about lighting made from recycled drums before but these ceiling lamps, made from two toms discarded from a Pearl Kit, have a kind of rustic charm I really like. From what I can gather, these lamps were originally created by an Etsy user and successfully sold. You could probably figure out how to make them yourself if you had a few spare drums laying around.
No doubt you can rely on it to keep good time!
Other than finding a source (not necessarily the “original source”) for this image, not much else is known about the Drumkit Bathroom Fixtures seen above. It sure is a clever and well-executed idea though and would be both fun and functional to have in any musician or music fan’s bathroom.
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!
A Fan/Facebook friend of my pal Neal posted this awesome cake photo on his FB page for his recent Birthday, and I stole it because it is rules. The drums, cymbals and hardware all appear to be made of edible fondant, which tastes like ass but looks pretty 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. Enjoy perusing an extensive thread of viewer comments on Reddit at This link!
Thanks To Neal Smith For The Tip!
While the cake pictured above lacks in the attention to detail that you see in This Cake, I like that it has a proper kick drum and is set up a bit more like an actual kit. It probably tastes pretty good, too!
I can’t believe that this is the first Drumkit Cake I’ve come across in my trek across the interwebs, and yet, it is so. It is easy to say that this cake, or cakes, as it were, could be improved by setting each “Drum” cake layer on a proper stand, thus setting it up as a more authentic-looking kit. Also, not to mention, but you can see I am about to, this set up is quite obviously two snares and a tom, which is just wrong. But I suppose that fortunate recipients of Drumkit Cakes cannot be choosers.
