Before the taping of Picnic at the Opera, Pete Farmer of Farmer Foot Drums hooked me up with a fantastic StompDrum, I have been using it for the past week or so, and I couldn't be more impressed! Despite being smaller than my old 24"x16" bass drum (my StompDrum is 20"x4"), the StompDrum still warrants my sister coming downstairs and telling me to be quiet. I have been blown away by everything about the instrument, and will be using it for my upcoming solo gigs in the foreseeable future. Check out their website at footdrums.com
