Making Drums out of Plastic???

I saw a drum on saturday made of a thick piece of sewer pipe. It was covered over with suede buckskin and painted but when you look at it from below you see the black abs.
What do you think should this be the next faze?
I hope not the frame of my drum is hand hewn ash!
I spent weeks getting the frame just right. I put love and care into making it.

Sorry no the guy actualy was using it for healing ceremonies at a gathering! I wouldn't use it there, seeing it isn't traditional.

Hi Tibiki Kinew!! Hope you like it here!!

Sewer pipe?

Well maybe it's a hidden subconsious message about his singing!!?

Have to admit that I have also seen such drums. Can't say that i would ever make such a drum since i prefer making drums the traditional way.

I've often kind of wondered about the use of modern bass drums, too. Saw a few of them around.

That is absolutely INSANE and totally disrespectful. Mine is made from Oak (talk bout difficult to cut through the log) with raw hide top and bottom.

Not only could I not even dream of makin one out of plastic but I have lots of cherokee that would have my behind if I did.

let me resecend that statement. There would really only be one reason I'd make it out of plastic. If I was makin my 2 boy's one to play with. even then, I'd do my darnedest to make it out of wood.
