This model is similar to the normal drums but not entirely the same, because I only had a reference image. The reflections of the drums and cymbals are generated with an HDR image (which is packaged) and also use environment lighting. I hope you enjoy it.

I have a LONG history with Blender - I wrote some of the earliest Blender tutorials, worked for Not a Number and helped run the crowdfunding campaign that open sourced Blender (the first one on the internet!). I founded BlenderNation in 2006 and have been editing it every single day since then ;-) I also run the Blender Artists forum and I'm Head of Community at Sketchfab.


  1. Pixelated Profanity on

    This is a bit stupid, but can someone tell me whether the background is a huge plane or something else?

    • It looks odd yes.One other thing that looks a bit off is the color of the background having exactly the same color as the skins. Other from that its a great model.

  2. The drums' legs - and especially the front cymbals legs - are floating above the ground.

    And why is the scene so dark?

  3. Kirill Poltavets on

    Great models!
    Just a little mess with proportions and a bad background - not so bad. So come on - stop blaming these little mistakes!

  4. sorry guys i didn't know the proportions. I am hardly a novice. And on the plane, my CPU is slow I could not make a scene

  5. Out of proportions and the toms aren´t right too. With such metal rings around it, your sticks always crash!
