I don't know how I feel about drilling that monster for a tom mount.

Better get that baby insured.

Is that a stave-type drum or do they actually use plies?

not really plies, sort of like a barrel type construction.

Aged 20 years. The guy that made the first one was definitely a patient man!

They probably are. They're like a wine casks.

Closer to home, the 'Moon the Loon's custom made 1968 Premier drum kit was auctioned off at Christie’s in London in 2004 for a whopping $252,487 or £139,650.

Tommy Lee will probably have one on his next kit, the 40" he has now probably isn't quite big enough.....

The world's biggest O' Daiko, made from a 4 ton block of wood and over 9 feet in diameter! It took 12 people over a year to make it. (made by Asano Taiko). It is said that the furthest point at which the village Taiko could be heard marked the edge of the village.
