Default Now this is a great idea

I guess that a 26 inch bass drum could be made into a chandelier.

A crappy chandelier that doesn't put light out the sides, but I digress. They should have used and acrylic drum.

That is about the most butt ugly, white trash light fixture I think I ever saw lol, with one exception. I've installed more light fixtures than I care to remember, and that's pretty close to the bottom of the heap. Sorry but I have to call them like I see them. At least they could have used a renaissance RE head for a more diffuse warmer looking glow, without the bright hot spot that a clear head would show.

So then a multivented Pork Pie snare would be ideal

I've seen OCDP metal snares that have about 5 billion little pinholes in the shell. Like punched tin lighting, (love punched tin lighting for a real country/colonial feel) it would make a really cool light dot pattern on the walls and ceiling. But it would still look kinda dumb, a snare drum hanging from a chain. The word that comes to mind is trashpicked. I'd want to hit it but light bulbs don't like vibration when they are hot.

Okay, I don't think this would apply to general decorative lighting, but in a man cave / drum studio set-up it would look rather unique and cool.

Yeah -

What light fitting is best for metal?

Recommend me (horrendous grammar) a light fitting under $400.

Light fittings vs. groove.
