Default looking 4 exotic expandable drumkit manufacturer

a few weeks ago i was searching google images for huge drumkits and came across a kit with expandable/extendable shells (think large diameter plastic dryer vent hose). The manufacturer was european (nordic, swedish? I couldn't read the sites text!). Stupid me didn't mark the site and now that i'm trying to let another drummer friend of mine know about it, i can't find the darn thing!
Anyone know what i'm talking about?
Thanks for any help!
-Jim

Yes, I've seen them. Interesting, but awful. Can't remember the maker either, but I'll have a dig. Someone posted a picture here a while back.

I have also seen pics and info of that style drumkit. It was pretty wild looking. The drums did get a bad review as I remember.

The Op is referring to drums using flexible plastic ventilation ducting as a shell. Personally, I think such a design displays a complete lack of understanding about how drums actually work, but each to their own.

No, those aren't them, interesting though!
Picture large diameter (as needed for standard head & tom sizes) flexable dryer venting hose (now made of aluminium, at least required in the states) of immense lengths (want a bass drum shell 20 feet long to flow like a snake across the stage?).
I still can't find pics or the (Nordic? Scandinavian? Swedish? Dutch?, No idea...) website even after trying to 'redo' my search parameters that caused me to come across the initial pics in the first place.
I looked for large drumkits using additional words & in various combinations such as:
massive, exotic, drums, drumsets, custom, huge & even looked for drumsets that light up and/or glow in the dark....;>)

I know what drums you are talking about, I think I have a pic somewhere on my Ipod, I need to find the charger, then I'll try to get back with the name.

Think of what you could buy for that kind of money. Choose wisely.

They look like the sort of sci-fi drums that TV shows in the 70s thought they would be making in the future... and they were right! They are the 'Blake's 7' of drum kits.
I want some!!

first thing i thought of..lol..the other drum concept seem pretty cool but the drums had no body to them IMO. I can understand where K.I.S would say the resonance is affected.

They would make for a VERY cool visual with the right act and the right stage theme, but that's about the only positive I can come up with.
