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

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.

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? ; )

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.

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.

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

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...

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.

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 !
