This set up was specifically designed for air travel, and is still the set up Junkyard Symphony uses whenever
tehy have to tavel far from home. It can fit into 4 cases so that the equipment can be checked on the plane
with no extra bagagge fees. The drum sets consist of plastic buckets, metal pails, a hub cap, dog bowls, a recycle bin, a cow bell, a tin cup, and an old ships bell. The juggling gear consists
of plungers, jugs, diabolo, devil sticks, flying mops, plunger poms, wig, rice shakers, toy basket ball net, magic string and bottle, tennis ball paddle, ball catching cup, noodle goggles, bottle cap nose,
and of course a whistle. They also have a compactable dolly that packs into the suitcase to transport all the equipment to and from the plane, taxi, hotel etc.
This particular set-up features two rolling trashcans with buckets, pails, water jugs, dog bowls, a hubcap
and cowbells. It sounded great and was very useful to transport for everything including the juggling gear could fit inside the two trashcans. This set-up however could not
be taken on the plane which is why they use a more compact set up now.
For a brief time Junkyard Symphony used a set-up that looked like a real drum kit. It was the easiest set up
to play on because everything was well placed and it was a sit down kit, but it was too complicated to assemble and the tradition in Junkyard Symphony is to drum while standing up
so this particular version didn't last long.
For the longest time Junkyard Symphony used this particular set-up, which featured pots and pans, an oil barrel, buckets, a tire rim, barrels, hub caps, a bath tub
and even the kitchen sink. This set-up was the most fun, but it was also very loud, very big, very heavy, very difficult to transport and very diffficult to set up, so that is why
Junkyard Symphony uses a lighter, quieter set up now.
