Drum Point Light is one of three survivingChesapeake Bay screw-pile lighthouses. Originally located off Drum Point at the mouth of the Patuxent River, it is now an exhibit at the Calvert Marine Museum.

This is a camera angle from the sitting position on the set.the drum sticks are 5a sticks which I find better to use.

""Taiko" is Japanese for "great drum." The history of the great drum can be traced back centuries to religious ceremonies, harvest festivals and battlefield performances. It is widely agreed that Taiko reflects the spirit and essence of the Japanese people. Taiko drumming is more popular now than ever; its distinctive sounds can be heard in everything from western pop music to blockbuster Hollywood films.


Matsuriza is a percussion troupe that performs a traditional, 15-minute Japanese drum show at the Japan Pavilion at Epcot theme park.


Using handmade drums that range in height from 6 inches to 6 feet, the drummers in Matsuriza create a unique syncronized booming rhythm that can be heard from quite a distance away."

Drum Castle is a castle near Drumoak in Aberdeenshire, Scotland. For centuries it was the seat of the chief of Clan Irvine. The place-name Drum is derived from Gaelic druim, 'ridge'.


The original 13th century tower of Drum Castle has been suggested as the work of medieval architect Richard Cementarius, who built the Bridge of Don in Old Aberdeen. It is believed to be one of the three oldest tower houses in Scotland (and notably unaltered). A large wing was added in 1619 by the 9th laird, further alterations were made during the Victorian era.


The castle and its grounds were granted to William de Irwyn in 1325 by Robert the Bruce, and remained in the possession of Clan Irvine until 1975. William de Irwyn (of the Irvings of Bonshaw clan) was armour bearer/secretary (and neighbor) to King Robert the Bruce. Drum played a role in the Covenanting Rebellion (as did nearby Muchalls Castle) leading to its being attacked and sacked three times.


Chieftain's BannerThe castle is surrounded by late 18th century gardens, including a rose garden and arboretum containing trees from all regions of the 18th century British Empire.


Today, the castle is owned by the National Trust for Scotland and is open during the summer months. The chapel, dining hall and estate may be hired for weddings and corporate functions. A variety of local events such as classic car rallies and musical fetes also occur here. There is also a small shop and tearoom within the castle.

An old weigh hut on the tips of Drum Quarry. The mighty Manod Mawr looms in the background with the cliffs of Clogwyn Candryll on the left and Clogwyn Garw in the middle. Between there and the hut is very undulating and difficult country, but the line of the Roman road, Sarn Helen, can be made out along the top of the first green ridge. In Roman times this area would have been densely wooded, with wolves and unfriendly natives roaming, so the high roads were the best!

The pit in front of the hut is where the weighing machinery would have been, underneath the rails of the tramway. The scrap man would have taken that !

Was out at my favourite musical store and saw this fantastic setup. Had to have a shot. Also, any guesses as to which lens? Hint: Look at the ugly octagonal bokeh... Guess before checking my EXIF.. :)

And the bugles and the drums give you music,

And my heart, O my soldiers, my veterans,

My heart gives you love. "

006/365 - Saturday morning drum lessons. Today is my tutor's last day. The new shift pattern at his day job means that Simon has to put up with me in future. This is the only exercise I get these days - I don't even own a pair of trainers anymore!!

A drum I bought in a charity shop, 25cm in diameter, with a raised pattern in form of a five pointed star & other decoration. Lots of work gone into this - if anyone has an idea as to its possible provenance, I'd be delighted to know.

This is my drum set at my home in New York. I have had it for four years and I love it. I don't have much time anymore to play but I will always keep it

Today I made some adjustments on my drum kit.

It got reduced to a 4-piece and and that made room for the ride cymbal arm in the bass drum.

52 Weeks: ANYTHING MUSIC. Was trying for more obscure subjects for music this year. A small 'bongo' drum, that now I cannot recall how we obtained.

A late 70s era Ludwig drum set. The bass drum is 24" 18" floor tom. No mounted tom. The snare is a Black Beauty. I recovered the bass and floor tom in about 2003. They had been a black wrap, I opted for the white MOTO pearl.
