Chicago Drum Show: Joyful Noise Drums

Joyful Noise packed its Chicago Drum Show booth with beautiful metal snare drums and a couple of one-of-a-kind drum sets that stopped us in our tracks. The company introduced its Luminary snare drum line, made of seamless brushed aluminum, and proudly displayed two large natural wood drum sets: one made from lumber salvaged from the Great Lakes and the other featuring musical-grade quilted maple. Be forewarned: While everything at the Joyful Noise booth was masterfully handcrafted, it all also cost a pretty penny.
