    You can find adhesive glitter vinyl on eBay, if you're interested.

    Here's my $30 toy drum set...

    Did you get your bass drum logo printed professionally? was it hard to apply?

    Drew it in Photoshop and had it printed and laminated at a local shop for $16.

    That's the one. Mine was pink. lol. I see they've added more drums since I bought mine.

    All up, I think it cost me around $65.

    Well mine does still look toyish, so I'm sure yours will turn out better. Mine had to fit on a 40x40cm cabinet. Oh, and you can see in this picture that my Animal is sitting on a cardboard box. Shhh! lol. The stool with the kit was too low.

    I drew my bass drum logo from this image.

    [​IMG]

    Yes, that's the actual size of it. It's the only image I could find of that logo front-on. So I blew it up a bazillion times to make a template. lol. :eek:

    I'm pretty desperate to make a replica drum set for my Animal but have yet to find a drumset that accurately matches any of the onscreen sets. If any happens to come across one, could you please post a link here :) I have a printer lined up to print on vinyl for the drum from and am still looking at options for the glittery bits.

    i will keep my eyes open for ya reevz!! the set i bought is called "red metallic"...so i am hoping that it will be ok...not exact...but in the same vein...

    oh by the way reevz!! Thanks again for image file!! i actually didnt end up using it...but found something very similar here... http://a.family.go.com/images/cms/disney/PDFs/muppet-theater-playset-printable-1011.pdf

    if you notice the drum isnt visually complete and is cut off at the bootom... so i fixed that in photoshop and then sharpened it all a bit...

    here is my final product if anyone wants to use it...

    I've been trying to find a place to host my image for the drum front. It's a bit big.

    [​IMG]

    You can click it to find bigger (huge) versions. (On Flickr, right-click to get other sizes)

    It ain't perfect, but printed at the right size it looks pretty good (IMO).

    Remember, the rest of the band is Dr. Teeth (keyboards), Floyd Pepper (bass guitarist), Janice (lead guitar), and Zoot Simms (saxaphonist).

    Good luck and keep believing in yourself.

    Thanks, Casey! I feel so awful for forgetting Lips (the trumpet player).

    Fantastic resources! I know a few members on other forums that would be very greatful for this information. I know I've been hunting for a drum set for awhile and this will work very well.

    Hey guys, I LOVE these drum kit displays to show off the replica Animals. Great idea!

    I've never seen that last name for Zoot. I did a Google search and there is someone named Zoot Simms, but he doesn't appear to be the Muppet character.
