30 Days of Weird Instruments, DAY 3 – The Cheese Drums

Animal from the Muppets would love these. And if you like your drums pleasant sounding and delicious, you'll love them, too.

I’ll leave it to readers to decide whether or not the cheese drums are pleasing to the ears, but I will say that Han Bennink, the drummer in the video below, has mad skill.

His performance is from a 2005 exhibit at the Museum of Contemporary Canadian Art called DEMONS STOLE MY SOUL: Rock ‘N Roll Drums in Contemporary Art. The video description talks about the meaning behind the cheese in a more informed manner. 

Seriously, those chops are bananas. That is high level drumming by a man known for his ability to play on any surface.

Monday’s instrument will drive you nuts.

Purchase I AM DRUMS!


  1. Hahahahahah! Thank you so much for this. XD

  2. I'll bet a lot of parents would prefer for their kids to learn to play on cheese drums...

  3. Haha! I think it would definitely decrease the number of headaches in the household.
