    Too obsessed with drums?

    I have been obsessed with drums since I can remember. It's all I've ever wanted to do. And now that I've been playing them for almost 3 decades, I'm still obsessed with them. Maybe even more so.

    Outside the box drum shells

    I'm not worried about the cost of glue, rather the amount of glue vs wood. The more staves, the more glue. I'm thinking here about how much glue is used in ply drums and how that glue affects the wood. A stave drum only has glue at the joints. The less joints, the less glue, the more pure wood...

    I guess depending on how many staves I used it could work. It's maybe 4 inches in diameter at the base though. If the staves were 2", that's roughly 20 staves for a 13" drum as a 13" drum is approximately 40" in circumference. That's a bunch of glue.

    Drum Kit made from Reclaimed Closet Doors

    This is a perfect example of why construction is more important than materials. Those drums sound horrible, even with the "better" wood. I'm a bit miffed that he got brand new, donated heads. The rest of us who actually play have to buy those things. Even manufacturers have to buy heads.

    Rhythm and time habits

    I'm not a fan of the teeth clenched, scrunched face look that many drummers employ. Almost like drumming is painful. Bozzio makes this face a lot. I find myself clicking my teeth to count sometimes.

    Outside the box drum shells

    That's a good idea. I looked at the one I took down and it's too small for staves after it gets debarked and squared. It's big enough to make sticks out of though.

    Same here. It grows like mad on the south side of my house. I cut down like 15-20 of them of various size and ages this spring. I drilled out the stumps and filled them with epsom salt and the !@#$%^ things still continue to try and grow. I cant mow there so I weed eat that part of the yard.

    Honey locust or black locust. We have them here in Arkansas. They are thorny trees, have a decent hardness (1580 and 1700), and are rot resistant. In old times, the honey locust thorns were used as nails. I'd also like to try fruit or nut trees...

    Tama Star Bubinga vs Walnut?

    Wow! That is quite the setup. The lift (? What do you call this?) is impressive in itself. That small sun looks like something to behold also. But what I really wanna know is... you still have to stick your hand in there and push the button?
