Five Gallon Correspondent Jeremy Cook has done one better and made a cheap version of a “hang drum” out of a 5 gallon propane tank.

Hang drums are very high-end handmade metal drums. Similar models go for hundreds, and the real thing costs thousands of dollars. Jeremy has put together this video which features shots of building a 5 gallon hang drum with genuine hang drum music played in the background.
