Ever since we first saw the drum kit played by Kottonmouth Kings drummer Lou Dogg, we’ve wondered why anyone would be inspired to mount a drum set onto an adult-sized tricycle. Don’t get us wrong – it was definitely cool, but we just didn’t expect the idea to catch on.
Okay – we were proved wrong when we received these shots of Austin Comnick’s clear acrylic Crush drums and Zildjian cymbals setup mounted on a lowrider trike.
“I always think of ways to make live shows better whether it be props or lighting,” Comnick told us. “So I came up with the idea after seeing a lowrider trike and figured it would be one of the coolest kits to see on stage ever.”
The 4-piece setup features a 24" x 20" bass drum, 8" x 6" mounted tom, 16" x 14" floor tom, and a 13" Mapex piccolo snare. Comnick also chose an array of Zildjian ZBT cymbals, which include 14" hi-hats, 14" and 16" crashes, and an 18" ride. The cherry on the top is a DW double pedal and hi-hat stand. The bike is generic.
“It looks amazing in person,” Comnick says. It ain’t so bad in the photos either. Thanks for sending them Austin!
