Introducing “Bucket Drums”
Last week, we told you about the Bucket Drumming Competition, but now, it looks like someone’s (Scott Rockenfiled of Queensryche fame) actually started making drums made out of buckets.
To me, it seems a little self-defeating. What makes bucket drums bucket drums is the fact that they’re just buckets. What we have here are buckets with drumheads, resulting in drums with buckets for shells. Not much fun for little harpo. Regardless, they are here now so I’m sure we’ll be reading more about them.
Here’s what their press release had to say:
BucketDrums LLC, introduces the world’s first bucket based drum. Using a revolutionary new Head Mounting system and a 100% Recycled Plastic Bucket, BucketDrums has now made drums affordable for everyone. In addition, the BucketDrums come complete with easily installed “tom mounts” for adding the BucketDrums to any drum or percussion setup, Drumsticks, sticker pack, and drum tuning key.
“You’ve never seen anything as cool as these things. They are easy to tune, fun to play, and really sound amazing,” said Founder and CEO Scott Rockenfield.
