We have the privilege of being the first band in South Africa to play the Farmer Foot Drums. These drums are hand built in America. The company is also run by a husband and wife team, just like us!
With Lourens originally being a drummer, the need arose to do more with his feet than only the 2 peddles as we used to have. He did a lot of research and in the end decided that it will be worth it to ship this brilliant piece of engineering to South Africa.
Built into this drum set is a bass drum, a snare drum, high hats, a shaker and a tambourine. This is operated with your heals and toes via 8 pedals. If you close your eyes, you would say that there is a drummer on stage.
We would say that it is truly worth it to book your ticket to see this spectacular instrument in action.
As we always say – as long as we keep the music real and authentic, the Farmer Foot Drums most definitely resembles this.
