Well, designer Nir Shemesh has an idea — and it looks pretty sexy. Shemesh’s design is slick and stylish. Highly portable with speakers installed in the carrying case, so the entire kit stays organized. The system can also be hooked up to a computer for song learning and recording, making it easier for beginners. Its called the Street Beat Seat and it’s made for sitting and jamming. The drum is inserted and held in place by helix bolts. The drum can be replaced or changed at any time by professionals, and the thickness of the metal is meant to prevent vandalism of any kind.
Each of the drum keys found on the drum head is of a different thickness and width, creating a variety of sounds and tunes. The front grill transfers sound vibes outward and, helpfully, helps with drainage of rain and other such weathers that might fall in through the top of the drum.
The sort of drum that’s inserted at the top is the Tongue Drum, reported to be perhaps the most ancient constructed drum in the world, its creation, in its simplest form, being of such an easy method that it just happened to have jammed out some of the first tunes.
…perhaps the most ancient constructed drum in the world…
