I have several empty mini beer kegs, which I have started repurposing as tabletop lamps...


However...

One lamp is much like any other lamp and I am sure that somebody could come up with something a little more...melodic...!

A canjo - or beer keg bass - or whatever? Any good ideas will be appreciated.

Thanks Richard - I'll have a pint in your honour next time I'm emptying another keg; cheers mate...!

One string beer keg bass is my vote. Easily built using a wash tub bass design as the starting point.

Yes, that is another option as the top only has a hole about 1" diameter.

for drums . i'd just cut them  different sizes .. you'd get 2 out of a keg (if the top is workable)

Cutting the keg in half lengthways might well work for a voilocello or any other stringed instrument.

Amps did cross my mind - but having not built one yet, it seems a little daunting. As for drums, I think partial filling with different amounts of sand or whatever might work to make a good set - and the tap holes would be good places for mic-ing the whole thing up.

Alot of folks make amps outta these , not much else .  so a guit,  or a drum,set would be cool .

How about a beer keg Violoncello da Spalla?
