DIY homebrew drum stand from basketball hoops

Problem: Big old djembe drums are heavy. Even if you have a harness or strap to carry they get heavy and you get tired. You might put it on the ground and sit on it and play but acoustically that sucks.

Solution: Take a couple of old Basketball hoops and some spare parts and make a stand.

This one is pretty self-explanatory. I took some old junk laying around and made a drum stand. I would like to mount a cowbell and a wood block to it also to get some different sounds. On the bottom you could put pillows to muffle it if you wanted, or you could easily mount a mic down there. It's so much fun to play when you don't have to lug it around! Bonus: it still works as a basketball hoop for toddlers, or maybe even for adults if you hung it up high somewhere.
