Saw a full set of drums for sale at a garage sale for 40$ and was thinking this would be great for a nice cheap grain measure style build. I have a pile of maple veneer I was sitting on from another project so I’m thinking about plugging the drill holes, veneering the fronts and cutting them into 3” hoops.
Make a few banjos and keep it out of the landfill.

Two 12” toms one 14” Tom a metal 14” snare (useless for this build but I might make a djanzang or something with it). And a bass drum I haven’t measured yet that I plan one making into 1 or 2 upright bass banjos
So far so good the two outer parts are nice and sturdy but the center has a hardware hole that might be too big to plug. I think I’ll realistically be able to get 2 rims out of each drum, was hoping for 3 but not likely.
This is perfect for me I was actually thinking about ordering some drum shells and cutting them up to make pots but between the price and shipping it was cheaper to buy a finished drum set unless I got them from China, assuming I had room to store 80 Shells.
