The littlest drum kit I've ever seen - my own one.
At the beginning - sorry for my english. Honestly, I never use that language so I can make some funny mistakes or be hard to understand. Also - today I'm pretty lazy and having no willingness for checking the dictionary :)
I made this drum kit as a gift for my friend, who always wanted to play drums, but had too small flat to keep that instrument. She had birthday, so I made the tiniest one I could to give her a chance for being a drummer - the kit issmall enough to place it on your hand.
