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!
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.
In drumming, they say it’s not just about what you play; it’s about what you don’t play. The same can be said for the subtleties of achieving the correct lighting in a room: it’s not about how bright the light is but what it illuminates. Good lighting is just so important when it comes to setting a mood, which makes me wonder what might be set off when you light up this Snare Drum Lamp. Designed by 326 design firm in New Zealand, this attractive lamp prototype is the first of its kind. Tap the drum and it turns on, another tap and it turns off. Sensitivity controls prevent room noise from activating the light. Each drum light is made to order and sells for $850 (most likely not including shipping charges). Delivery times are confirmed when orders are placed. Visit This Link for more details. Shine on!
Here’s an interesting “homemade” drum kit: crafted out of barrels and consisting of a snare, single floor tom and two rack toms mounted on a very deep “kick.” I can’t imagine what the tones are like, but it sure does look cool.
This unique and collectible 1940s-era Child’s chair that looks like a drum is up for auction at First Dibs, where you can also see more pictures and get a description of the chair. Looks like a pretty cool addition to either an antique furniture collection or for someone who’s very into drumming!
Jesus God, can you believe this guy was only 32 when he died ?! What a crying shame. If Keith had stuck around a few more decades he would have been 62 years old today! Party on, Keith! I’m glad I at least got to see you play drums before you took off!
