Snowman gets his sticks.
I said the drummer in my Snowman Orchestra would have sticks that moved.. Here is the contraption I just made. This is only slow.. they will do much faster with a couple of springs added.. Man I am so far behind.. I have not even put them in xLights yet.. The speed will be controlled thru xlights via DMX to an LOR DC controller.

That's great Plasma! Simple yet effective animations & movement. I might try to use that drumstick mechanic idea for a Halloween prop next year

How are you stopping the drum kit from going missing in the morning- or is it out and in each night
