    Default DIY "old stool" percussion rig

    And I really meant old stool, not old school.

    Used this set up with the bluegrass band on our monthly restaurant gig last Thursday night. Used brushes on 8" frame drum or 10" pandiero with jingles. Lower deck on stool to store the one not in use. Also my usual Cajun triangle, salsa bell and a circular saw blade.

    Left foot percussion. TamboToe® foot jingle, and Meinl cajon castanet velcro'd to a plank so I can play it with my foot :

    And this idea, I showed here before. Xhat mounting onto 3/8" percussion z-rod, using bass drum leg clamps :

    Brilliant. That's all I got to say. If I ever manage to get ahold of an empty beer keg, I'm turning it into a kick drum.

    Play the SONG......not the DRUMS!!!

    "I think that feeling is a lot more important than technique. It's all very well doing a triple paradiddle - but who's going to know you've done it? If you play technically you sound like everybody else. It's being original that counts." ~ John Bonham

    I was even stuck in the back, just like a real drummer
