Ridgefield residents David De Palo and Jennie Carr have just launched a Kickstarter campaign for their brand new invention, The JumpDrum.
"The JumpDrum is percussion instrument that's also an exercise," said De Palo. "It's a brand new way of playing the drums, where you march or bounce on top of a spring loaded bass drum and play tuned cajon-toms mounted vertically (instead of horizontally as in a standard kit) on a frame in front of you. It's a great instrument, and a great muscular as well as aerobic workout. It really has to be seen for you to full understand."
