I have never seen anything like this before or since!
“In June of 2011, I happened to be at a community day festival in a park in Pender Harbour. I had heard a rumour that these drums were in existence but had never seen them in pictures or in action up until that time.
When I saw them I was laughing so hard that I had to video tape it and post it up on YouTube asap for the world to see this…”
Since posting that video, it has gone viral, over 400,000 views at the time of this writing.
I have since learned that these drums were created by Canadian drummer and inventor Charlie Rose. Rumor has it that the first kit cost him about $4000.00 in beer and pizza, and an old car. In any event, he has a site called boingyboingy.ca that he started up shortly before I shot this video. So I am giving him a shout out link here. Hope it does him some good.
Apparently he was on “Dragons Den” in Canada (that is the Canadian version of “Shark Tank” for any Americans reading this), but unfortunately he got no backers. In any event, if you want a set for yourself, then visit his site. boingyboingy.ca. There are more demonstration videos to be seen there.
I asked Marc LaFrance, the drummer for Randy Bachman if he wanted a set for Christmas, but he was not interested. I have no idea why.
