Current Set-up

The Bucket Drums
2017-present

           Junkyard Symphony's has used all kinds of junk over the years from pots and pans to a bath tub and yes, even the kitchen sink. The set up used now is called 'The Bucket Drums' because their base is made from a bucket. There are hubcaps and dog bowls for cycmbals and pails for snares. As well as recycle bins for tables, the set-up includes a 1000 Watt sound system which is suitable for audience sizes up to 1000 people. This entire set up can be installed in 30 minutes if needed, but 60 minutes is prefered.

Past Junk

The Compost Bins
2015-2016

           This set-up consisted of two compost bins. The bin on the left was used as a bass drum. There was a micriphone inside to give it some power and a pedal connected to a long stick to wack the side of the bin. The benefit of this set-up was that the bins had wheels so they were easy to move, and the stucture of the bins was solid and held up the drums very well. This set up was great for out-door shows. A couple of bricks were dropped into the bottom of the bins to give them some extra stability.

Travel Gear

2009-2014

           This set up was specifically designed for air travel, and is still the set up Junkyard Symphony uses whenever tehy have to tavel far from home. It can fit into 4 cases so that the equipment can be checked on the plane with no extra bagagge fees. The drum sets consist of plastic buckets, metal pails, a hub cap, dog bowls, a recycle bin, a cow bell, a tin cup, and an old ships bell. The juggling gear consists of plungers, jugs, diabolo, devil sticks, flying mops, plunger poms, wig, rice shakers, toy basket ball net, magic string and bottle, tennis ball paddle, ball catching cup, noodle goggles, bottle cap nose, and of course a whistle. They also have a compactable dolly that packs into the suitcase to transport all the equipment to and from the plane, taxi, hotel etc.

The Garbage Bins

2007-2009

           This particular set-up features two rolling trashcans with buckets, pails, water jugs, dog bowls, a hubcap and cowbells. It sounded great and was very useful to transport for everything including the juggling gear could fit inside the two trashcans. This set-up however could not be taken on the plane which is why they use a more compact set up now.

The Drum Kit

2005-2006

           For a brief time Junkyard Symphony used a set-up that looked like a real drum kit. It was the easiest set up to play on because everything was well placed and it was a sit down kit, but it was too complicated to assemble and the tradition in Junkyard Symphony is to drum while standing up so this particular version didn't last long.

The Original Set-up

1992-2004

           For the longest time Junkyard Symphony used this particular set-up, which featured pots and pans, an oil barrel, buckets, a tire rim, barrels, hub caps, a bath tub and even the kitchen sink. This set-up was the most fun, but it was also very loud, very big, very heavy, very difficult to transport and very diffficult to set up, so that is why Junkyard Symphony uses a lighter, quieter set up now. The bottom picture shows the red dominated colours of the original set up from 1992 which and Jonny and Christian used. Back then their stage names were Jonny O and the Amazing Lackey's. Jonny eventually changed his name to Junkyard Jonny in 1999 when Christian left the company.
