A drum set storage solution for small spaces

The average drum set occupies at least 15 sq. foot of space and as rapid urbanisation continues, every inch of space will need to be efficiently utilised. Drummers struggle to accommodate a full size acoustic drum set - the future rock stars of tomorrow need a solution. Each component of the drum set attaches to a customised drum rack, which fastens onto a wall mounted frame. The drum set then simply slides up towards the ceiling, effectively utilising the upper dead space in the room. The drum rack can be detached from the frame with the set attached and rolled to the desired location. Drummers will no longer have to live in cluttered spaces or dismantle and hide their set when not in use. They can simply slide it up and proudly display their drum sets.
