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.

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

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.

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.

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.
