IDEAS to steal sound & Vision
not one to hide away his talents, Gary has positioned his drum kit on a bespoke platform in the corner of the living room. it not only looks cool, but the riser prevents vibrations travelling down and outwards, thereby providing a purer drum tone. to keep it in tune with the rest of the décor, it’s made from the same rusticstyle engineered-oak boards as the floor – supplied by source wood floors (sourcewoodfloors.co.uk) and priced at £39.99 per sq m. any competent joiner could re-create this design – find an approved tradesman at ratedpeople.com.
