As If Keeping Time Weren’t Difficult Enough…

Everyone knows being a drummer kind of sucks. You sit in the back and watch the singer take all the credit. The guitar player’s always stealing your lady (unless you’re Mick Fleetwood). Your gear is HEAVY and, most importantly, no one ever wants to help you schlep it around.

Created by a Russian percussionist who was — I’m guessing — tired of setting up and taking down his kit at every gig, the “Moto Drum” is pure genius.
