Computer case for drummers

Spotswood Custom Computers is selling computer cases that resemble a bass drum.

From the website:

Each custom, scratch-built case is handcrafted with high-quality maple veneer plywood, which gives you a beautiful, more durable and quieter running PC than anything else out there. In addition, you will have a very distinctive and attractive piece of furniture to house your computer!

Your choice of wood stain colors (protected by a hard, fingerprint hiding, matte finish), allows you to match the case with your existing kitchen, office, living room or home entertainment center d├ęcor. All fasteners are chromed or polished stainless steel and the durable 7/10 mil mylar side panels (completely removable) allow easy access to every component within the case.

And if you’re wondering if these drum shaped cases are loud, their FAQ explains: Yes, real acoustic drums are loud. But our cases are not drums. They are not built from pre-made drums. Besides our cases have so much hardware attached to them that every surface is completely dampened, so much so that one of our cases is actually quieter than a metal case. In music terms, the cases are “bricks.”

These custom cases go for about $500 USD (you can add some extra fan/brackets etc.), so they’re not exactly cheap, but they sure look classy!
