I think a hollow metal version would be awesomely loud! My version is so simple to make, that you might as well batch up a few at once.I started by slicing a board into a thin piece and planing it down to less than 1/8″ (about 3mm) to be used as the drum heads.
I used the thicker, 1/2″ (12mm) side of the board for the body of the drum.To make the hollowed out center, I bored a 3″ (76mm) hole using a hole saw chucked into my drill press.The trickiest part was figuring out a way to made the drum hollow and then cut it out into a thin ring without the wood becoming fragile.
