I use cowbells a lot at work. I actually don't have one myself, though.

I guess if a band would let me play "This Type of Funk" I'd get one.

If you had to purchase one cowbell, what would it be, what do you feel is most versatile and/or sweetest sounding? Or would that be two different cowbells altogether, one being most versatile, one being sweetest sounding?

I own several cowbells, and for most purposes a medium-size, mid-to-high pitch bell should be sufficient. Think of the sound in "Honky Tonk Women", "Don't Fear The Reaper", etc. - that's also the prevalent sound in a lot of Latin grooves. I currently use a Pearl Horacio Hernandez mid-size bell for this sound, but LP has a couple of bells, most notably the Black Beauty, that fill this space too.

The larger bells with the deeper sound are more associated with heavier rock music. I would recommend this type instead of the midsize bell if this is your primary/only musical genre. I own an LP Rock cowbell for that sound.

Thank you Al! I think I'd get a little tape involved if I tried a cowbell again, to tone down that harshness that I seem to get too much of, which couldn't possibly have anything to do with my technique, which is flawless. This would be the only time tape would be near my drums besides the other times I use it.

Definitely my CARMFCHAEL thrown tops. I could play other sticks, cymbals, drums, use different ear buds, but the CARMICHALE's are indispensable.

CARMICHALE throne tops have actually improved my posture, overall back health.

I will never part with this snare drum.
It belonged to my Dad.
A 1927 Ludwig Super.
I installed a new strainer.
I use it for 80% of my gigs.

lol

I'm just not very drawn to them. The kids are, though. They are less trainwreck prone than shakers. :-)

My setup is 6-piece fusion Vinnie style with aux snare. There's often a pandeiro on the left instead. The main change is usually taking away stuff I don't need.

Looking at my stick bag and my small percussion case, which has at least two of every possible shaker of jangly thing, one would think there was a cow bell in there. I just like solving things with other sounds.

Only 2 drums. My dad's old Ludwig Snare and Bass. Other than that, I'd sell it all if needed for my family. I'd sell his too if needed. He'd of wanted me to do so.

If I had to pick one piece, it would likely be my 18" Zildjian Rock Crash, circa 1980. It's probably more sentimental than anything, but it does sound good in the right setting, and it's among the pieces that I've had the longest. I would have a hard time selling/trading that piece, for some reason.

(I have a friend that buys/sells/trades music gear that has been after me to trade that with him, it's kinda comical...so there must be some sort of resale value to that particular cymbal.)

That looks like it'd be very comfortable, I need a throne may check them out, hopefully comes in pink. Looks like you could even store sticks in the crevasse under ur asse.

If I was to take two items (can’t just have one) it would be my Radio King and Black Beauty.

Will let my family sell them though. Won’t be cremating anything ofther than myself.

Non parle vous francais.

Interesting thread. No gear is that important to me, not even my pedals and I am a footwork junkie. I do, however, plan on being creamated and sealed in a drum. Been planning on this forever. I am scared to get the drum, because I feel that means I've accepted death and am ready to move on. NEVER!

Probably the Tama piccolo snare I bought from my old drum teacher for $30. It's old and looks like crap, but it has such an excellent pop, and I like to tune it kinda low so it has a great low-end mixed with high-end.

If you're planning on taking stuff to the grave you better invest in an asbestos lined case. Me? I'm hoping to be reunited in heaven with everything I loved on earth.

...okay maybe a 18" PAiSTe 2002 crash which hopefully won't get too much heat damage.

I´ll probably take my PDP Concept Black Nickel over Steel snare to the grave.
Not because I like it so much but because I´ve been trying to sell it for ages and nobody wants to buy the bloody thing! :-D

Seriously though, I´m pretty sure I´ll never part with my Pearl 13x3 brass piccolo - it´s such a cool little drum, has a great sound and is not worth enough money to bother selling.

Nothing.

I always said I'd keep playing as long as it's fun and I can physically carry my gear. If I'm fortunate enough to live beyond my playing years, when that time comes it's all going. It will be sad, but I'm not having gear piled in the house that isn't getting used.

Probably my 4-0-Blue, it's a 1984 402 that was one of the last batch to come out of the Chicago factory. It has bowtie lugs and was sprayed blue at some point before I got it.

It was my first top end snare drum and only cost £100 in 2003. Still in the snare roster, got used on Saturday.

It's not worth a lot cosmetically but it's been everywhere with me since I was 19.

Just last week I told my wife and daughter that I want to be buried with my 20” Zildjian ride cymbal that my father bought me for my 16th birthday in 1976. I’m not sure how old it is, as it was bought USED, but the hole is very small which indicates an older model.

I love the sound and haven’t heard any I like as much.

All my possessions will be placed in my crypt-because of years in anatomy and microscopy labs (histological aldehydes, electron microscopy osmium tetroxide, DAB, seems like all reagents cause cancer or toxic , a phosgene gas scare, lots of radioactive compounds for various assays and proteomics, personal pickling ;) I think I'll be like Lenin and preserved forever. But I'm dumping my "vital essence" into a computer where I will become Artificially Intelligent (hee,hee,hee)-so I'll live on the ethernet till technology can build me a robotic body. Then I'll be able to isolate DNA (because I'm perfectly preserved) and clone myself-and my robot self watch myself grow up and at puberty kill the lil mother and transplant my vital essence into my new body-it ain't murder if my clone (?????). So I look at my old body, enjoy a new one, and play da drums. It's my masterplan though my wife has hinted she may cremate me.
