    He goes on to talk about the first printed drum next to the second, and seems surprised that it sounds different. He puts this down to the material they used to print with. However, he makes no mention of the fact it's a different size. I would have thought a pro-drummer with this kind of vested interest might have twigged onto that...

    You drummers certainly are close minded! Thought musicians would at least be open to any kind of technology going on. This may not be the next big thing, but somehow it could be used to standard drum manufacturing. If someone like Neil Peart was interested, some of you would certainly take more notice. I really don't care for the appearance of the material, but it could lead to other developments. Feed your head.

    Actually I have no problem with new tech, I just have an issue with weaksauce bands like Panic! At the Disco. So there’s that, which is nice.

    there's a reason that instruments requiring resonance have been made out of wood for thousands of years.

    If fiberglass or metal or composites were better, most drums would be made from them and they aren't. Some of that comes down to cost, but woods like maple, birch and mahogany have stood the test of time.

    These 3D printed drums are made from compressed powder and they have no track record of proven success.
    It is difficult to get a man to understand something, when his salary depends upon his not understanding it.

    Of course it's not going to take the drumming world by storm, but just another option and experiment. By the way, metal snares sound great!
