Chicago Drum Show: Ellis Drum Company

There must be something in the water in Minnesota, because the folks at Ellis Drum Company revealed a twisted sense of humor (as well as a knack for quality construction) at their 2011 Chicago Drum Show exhibit. In addition to a full stable of snare drums featuring various types of wood and acrylic shells, wraps and lacquers, and hardware options, the company proudly displayed an entire kit inspired by a particular brand of canned meat processed in their home state. You simply have to see this to believe it.
