Goblet drum from a $3 flea market copper pot, it did have a bog loop handle on the side of 1/2 inch copper pipe and a flat disk of copper soldered in the bottom about  an inch up from the rim, I de-soldered the disk and removed it to hopefully hammer into a reso cone, and shrunk the bottom of a plastic pie container from the bakery on with a heat gun for a drum head..

Part of me wants to redo it because of the messed up way it looks around the rim, I know now I should have used a cake container bottom rather than the pie container base I used as I'm sure I could do a neater looking job and I do have one of the right recycling code (#1 aka PETE) to redo it,  I but my ears tell me to not mess with it, it sounds sweet.as it is, and I might have just gotten lucky the first time, if I tear it apart to redo it, while I'm sure I can make it look better if I redo it, there is no telling if it it will sound that nice again.
