Default Can Cheap Buckets Sound Good?

We had a thread titled "Can a very (!) cheap drum set sound ok?" http://www.drummerworld.com/forums/s...d.php?t=143420

How about buckets? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4h0K...&frags=pl%2Cwn

No! Only buckets made of plastic recovered from the Great Lakes sound good. Peace and goodwill.

Home Depot orange buckets have much more depth and sustain than the ones from Lowes.

Man I love his trashy sounding grocery cart. Pretty clever he's tuned the buckets with inner buckets it looks like. He needs to kick the bucket-I mean he needs a kick bucket. I'd like to see what he comes up with for a pedal?
Man this is inspiring-I need to create the Lowes vs Home Depot bucket drum contents. Once I perfect the bucket drum that slides together into one nifty bucket I'll go on "Shark Tank"-I'll tell them being on their show was on my "bucket" list. Wow not getting any younger I better get to work on my bucket drums before I "kick the bucket". This reminds me I once had a dog I called "Bucket mouth"-he kicked the bucket. I'll call my bucket drum company "Dead dog bucket drums". Catchy no?

Yeah, but vintage buckets from old True Value hardware stores have a warmer tubby resonance. I'm experiencing some semantic satiation from seeing the word bucket so many times. Crazy.

I saw him in DC yesterday. I heard him at first and thought, yeah drums are pretty loud to carry this far and I wonder what hes using for stax? Then I saw him and it reminded me of the cheap drums thread. Weve been going at it all wrong. Sad part is, there was more cash in his donations bucket than Ive made at any gig in one night.

So do you fill the buckets with sand when you want a dry sound?

Cool video and cool playing.
The bucket had all-purpose on it, so why not use it as a drum, right ;-)?
I wonder what he is using as sticks. They make 2B's look like baby toys.
And I never thought a shopping cart would have that kind of trashy cymbal sound. I need one now.

Sure. Lot you can do with "found" items. Skillet/pan/bowl playing starts around 3:30. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BlbH...eature=related

Food grade buckets have the lowest fundamental.
