The Farmer FootDrum, our flagship instrument, is truly original and the only professional acoustic, portable, foot-played drum kit available. Each one is built in our Michigan shop and shipped directly to customers around the world.
This self-contained drum kit incorporates a snare, hi hats, bass drum, and various additional percussion and performing accessories. The FootDrum is available in three pedal configurations, with additional options available to control the look, sound, and price.
Every FootDrum uses the four inner pedals to play the core drum kit sounds: hi hat cymbals, snare drum, and bass drum. Additional pedals are used in two ways: to play the snare or hi hats with secondary drumsticks to add rhythmic possibilities, OR to play added percussion instruments, such as tambourines, crash cymbals, blocks, and more. Essentially, the more pedals you have the more options and freedom you have to find your sound.
