A drumset is made out of 2x4s. This project was the genesis of my investigation into democratic materials. In the United States, everyone has access to construction lumber.
Using 2x4’s, a table saw, and a collection of sanders I wanted to make functional drum shells that could replace a factory manufactured set. I built this drumset for $8.00. My shells replaced a $450.00 set bought from a Guitar Center. Never shop at Guitar Center. Just make things.
No matter who you are, sometimes you need to just rock out on a drum solo to either celebrate your successes or mourn your failures. Performing a good drum solo can be the perfect compliment or remedy to your day.
