Default Built a NAMM display in my yard...



I'm the web guy for Stone Custom Drums (http://stonecustomdrum.com) and have developed his NAMM booth in my backyard.

I used stainless steel shelves from my garage for the frame of the display, my drum rug is the backdrop for the "display case" and I got some halogen lighting off Craigslist for $10 which will illuminate the drums as they hang.

The sign I made from Plexiglas scraps; my friend has a laser cutter so I exported the logo from AI (Adobe Illustrator) into paths and he cut them for me. I used some silver metalflake Krylon fusion paint for that, as well as a "hammered metal" black finish for the backboard.

There's going to be enclosed spaces for storage (under the tabletop for instance as well as the left side, the lower part).

All in all I think I spent under $75 for all the stuff required to make this monstrosity. Once I get it all installed at NAMM (#2663, hall D) I'll post pics.

That was a lot of fun to make. :D

Lots of creative thinking for that sign. It turned out really good.

Looking forward to the other pics in a few days.

I think the utilitarian look focusses attention on the drums, & that's a good thing IMO. Have a great event :)
