Boom Alley Drums @ 2012 Chicago Show

Boom Alley Drums

While visiting the Gauger Percussion booth, RIMS inventor Gary Gauger suggested I check out the cool nesting drum set at the Boom Alley booth. It was the worth the effort – the company’s kit nests both toms inside the bass drum to fit into a single case, and yet sounds big and … well … boomy! However, the kit’s nesting ability is only one of the interesting technological features of these drums, which include their own unique lightweight composite lugs and suspension mounting system.
