Hybrid Rolling Drum Kit

Shared by GuilhermeM on 2014-04-03 15:20

About the solution

Using marine batteries and inverters, the wheelchair has two power sources. One battery runs the actual chair and the other runs the drum kit. The speaker system for the hybrid kit was designed by Renkus-Heinz, out of Foothills Ranch, California. The pedal mechanism (designed by Axis Percussion) utilizes the shaft from a double bass drum pedal, runs from a coupling piece off his leg and bolts onto the foot plate of his Iron Cobra single pedal.
This way, Joe is able to play the drums, and he is part of a band: Unit 287. In 2008, the band was honored with a nomination in the Orange County Music Awards.
