Tuned Gig Buckets
- Tuned Gig Buckets
- This product is about reinterpreting common archetypes and how to enhance their affordances as an instrument. In this case it is the standard 5 gallon bucket common to North America. The graphics aim to enhance the perception of the buckets' ability to be a drum and to teach novice users basic drum rudiments. Although subtle, these interventions elevate the perceived value of this common object.
Tuned Gig Buckets come in a set of two. One is equipped with a cushion to use as a seat while the other is designed to be the drum. The handle is modified to be used as a foot pedal which changes the pitch of the sound while playing the bucket.
