If you could put ANYTHING inside your bass drum, what would it be?
 
A fish tank mounted on a Kelly Shue system? Birdcage? a Keg? Fog Machine?

I would put a washing machine in my Bass drum, should be trippy for the audience to look at.

A machine that makes genuine US currency.

Well, now I like Larry's idea better than mine.

Pixie Dust or whatever the forum members have been smoking that come up with these silly Off Topic Lounge threads.

Victims, but only until I have time to chop them up and put them in the freezer.

18" JBL, a 1000w amp, a trigger with a sample of a 26" 3 ply maple and a volume knob....for those gigs where an inequity needs to be nudged in my favor ;)

A full bed. I've seen blankets, sheets, pj's, pillows... why not just do it all? I'll hire someone to sleep in it too for gigging.

I'd put Mr. Pockets in there for a while.........see if we couldn't unscramble his brain!! :-)

I'd say a raccoon running on a mouse wheel would be cool. Although it would have to be a deaf raccoon.

Re: If you could put ANYTHING inside your bass drum, what would it be?
 
I like my bass drum empty.....so how about a signature of Tony Williams, Buddy Rich, Art Blakey, Max Roach, John Bonham...some famous drummer who I admire and who has passed on.

A battery of laser lights? It would go down well with my lounge gig.

This and every time you hit the drum it spit out a fresh $100, that would give you some real incentive to work on your BPM, maybe try one of those Duallist triple kick pedals.

Andy's wind chimes and probably a kegerator

My wind chimes are maligned enough as it is, without further torture. If they go in the bass drum, so do you, & I'll play The Wombles greatest hits on a loop relentlessly. If you plead with sufficient sincerity, I just might switch to a Kenny G medley once an hour ;)

Inside of my bass drum I like to put people who don't believe in Pixie Dust :)

is there beer involved in some way?

Mr. Pockets, in a previous thread you mentioned how you would like to use your double pedal on a girl's bottom, have you considered somehow setting up your bass drum to hold that? ; )

Or have three bass drums, each with a triple kick pedal!

I'd put a groupie in it. Wouldn't have to move off the stage when the band take a break. I would also have someone to talk to.

i always thought dry ice would be cool! every time u hit it, a puff of smoke would come out the res hole!! right now theres just a wadded up blanket and a few packs of rolling papers in there

Mo.

I mean, come on! This didn't occur to anyone else?!

EDIT: Did I just hit full-on Hannibal-level creepy right there? Blame the full bottle of wine.

julius 05-11-2014 08:44 AM

Re: If you could put ANYTHING inside your bass drum, what would it be?
 
I wonder if anyone has ever hung a disco ball inside (with a clear reso of course).

If it's any consolation, I missed this thread first time around, and when I saw the title my first thought was "Salma Hayek!", which is close enough in concept to your idea Al.

Just without the handy, ready-to-reference URL of a pic of Mo

Popcorn Mogul 05-11-2014 03:22 PM

Re: If you could put ANYTHING inside your bass drum, what would it be?
 
I would like either:
1) a really small guy with his own really small kit that plays only triples. (clear reso)
2) the bones of queen Vic.
3) a wolf
4) pirate flags.
5)a pot-plant, bonsai tree, or actual tree

the list is endless...

JimFiore 05-11-2014 04:20 PM

Re: If you could put ANYTHING inside your bass drum, what would it be?
 
Beyond the obvious stuff like a money machine or Barbara Eden as a real genie:

Inside the kick would be a perfect miniature replica of my drum kit. Inside that kick would be a miniature replica of the miniature replica, and so on to infinity.

It would take a little while to build the whole thing, though. Infinitely long, in fact.

Nah, I'd put her in my snare drum so I could HIT THAT ALL NIGHT!!!

...actually, I would opt for one of those Kelly Shu mounts and the disembodied head of Sir LarryAce. It would be a headbanging good time...

Captain Bash 05-11-2014 10:07 PM

Re: If you could put ANYTHING inside your bass drum, what would it be?
 
In my bass drum I would have two umpa-lumpas who can carry and set-up /tear down/ my kit. Naturally they sleep on the small pillow and are fed via the port hole in my fibre skin reso-head. Spillages will not be tolerated !

Ba dum PISH.

I wonder if Mo knows about this cult of fanboys she's got on this forum. She'll find out if Bo talks her into going to the East Coast meetup, I think...

Well then take out the trash - or pick up your room, or put down the cell phone, do your homework.... and while you're at it

GET OFF MY LAWN!


:-) JK - was thinking of all the things I chirp at my kid for....except for the lawn part.
