OMG! How cool are these stained glass drums? Answer: So effing cool! While they are not playable, they sure do light up the room — quite literally! Stained glass artist Paul Heller created this gorgeous lighting fixture by emulating a four piece kit made up of a kick drum with two mounted rack toms and a  floor tom, which appears to be a stand-alone unit. Even the cymbal is glass! Sweet!

Paul’s talent is far-reaching. In addition to making glass musical instruments to be used as signage in restaurants, he has also created custom glass guitars for county music artists like Miranda Lambert and Sara Evans.

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.
