Trash Can Drum

Postby Robobob » Fri Jan 12, 2007 10:26 pm

Hey guys. Me and my friend are tryin to make a drum out of a trash can. (Sound's silly I know.) I've looked online but it only gives me things that children would use. I want a REAL trash can drum. Anyone know how?

Here's some pages to help get you started. Although these pages deal directly with surdo construction, the theory and practice remains the same no matter the size of the drum. It's always a good idea to think "Brazil" when making metal drums because drums such as the repinique, surdo, repique de mao etc all began as metal cans. People even made pandeiros out of steel cans!

Good luck!

are you trying to do the same thing as the custom percussionists in slipknot? if so, they use kegs, not trash cans
if u aren't trying to do that, then disregard what im telling u

HAHA. No, I know those are kegs and thats not what I'm going for. But I'm impressed by the reference though. Nah, I'm really lookin to turn a real trash can into a useable drum. I've gotten a few suggestiongs already but if anyone has anymore I most certainly will not knock them. I've actually been thinking about making an entire rig of them. Different sizes, materials, and any other variable.

P.S. Slipknot owns

if you hit the sides of the can with ine stick you can get a cool effect when you hit the top of the can with the other stick, we had the whole percussion class play a song called stinkin garbage!!!! it kicked ass i suggest using marching snare sticks

And I have a trash can set up right next to me when I play that song if no one wants to hit it.
