So very shiny. o.o I live how everything has a metallic tinge to it, whether it be chrome, steel or bronze.

Just a shot in the dark but I'm guessing you're into classic rock? Maybe early/80s metal?

Does the music help the plants grow?

Moldy: I am indeed into both. As a matter of fact I play in two bands that cover both styles respectively: Phantom Isle (70s-early 80s heavy progressive rock) and Shadow Of Demise (thrash/death metal). I suppose certain drum configurations do give away the musical style, right?

GRUNTERSDAD: Not quite sure if it does help stimulate botanical growth but they seem to be growing pretty healthy so far. :-)

It's also a favorite resting place for my cat, Tiki. Oddly enough I named her after original P-Funk drummer Tiki Fulwood. Go figure!

Cats love drums. My neighbors cat frequently appears at my studio window or sliding door while I am playing.
I used to practice at a band members house. His wife had a cat. The cat would sleep on my cymbal bag while the band practiced. I would put the bag on the floor right next to my hat stand. The cat would also rub against my hi-hat leg as we played. The noise of the drums didn't affect the cat at all. When we took a break the cat would jump on my floor tom.
I like the drum room and your kit. It looks like a comfortable, relaxing place to play.

It's funny you should say that actually b/c i remember a mythbusters episode where a pea plant seemed to grow faster when they played metal music compared to softer styles of music and indeed no music at all. Weird really.

Anyway i hear that plants are great for the acoustics. Nice kit setup anyway nice power toms and that.
