The drum kit layout must be adjusted to fit in the limited space behind the glass – no more than 3 studs deep.

LEGO Drum Kit Layout

LEGO Drum Kit Layout

The best drum kit layout I could devise was using a platform of four Slope Inverted 33°, 3×2 blocks as follows:

  • The drummer stands centred up against the back panel, and bent slightly forward to accommodate their hair or head gear.
  • The bass drum is mounted forward, but off centre.
  • The hi-hat cymbals are mounted on the end next to the bass drum.
  • The floor tom-tom is mounted at the other end, centre rear on the brick.
  • The crash cymbal is mounted in front of the floor tom-tom.
  • The middle tom-tom is attached to the crash cymbal and swung around in front of the drummer.
  • The drumsticks need to be positioned to fit between bass drum and middle tom-tom.
