I’ve been to quite a few concerts recently, and have noticed a growing trend. I am used to seeing bands with stickers and decals on their kick drums, but as of late I have noticed more and more musicians decorating the sides of their rack toms and floor toms.
The decorations vary. I’ve seen some with just the band name, their wife’s name ( or other special someone.). I even saw a guy with a really cool picture of a demon on the side of his floor tom. They are using both die cut vinyl, and printed vinyl stickers. Both achieve a great result. I am partial to the die cut myself as I enjoy seeing the sheen of the drum between the vinyl.
It’s great to see such an awesome product used in such an intuitive way. I can’t wait to see where the future, and the consumer take the industry.
