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 décor. 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!
