Sorry, I don't have any pics. But I've been known to use the LP Mambo bell, and I also have an LP Salsa bell (just as big as the mambo, but it rings alot more). I also have an LP Cha Cha bell (that doesn't see the light of day, don't know why) and a 30-year-old Gon Bops 5" bell (which sounds just like the bell on "Honky Tonk Woman" which is why I keep it!).

I don't use more than two at any one time. One gets mounted on the bass drum in the traditional spot and the other gets clamped to the cymbal stand closest to the floor tom.

I own an LP Mambo, a smaller, no-name cowbell (about Black Beauty size), and an Afro multi-bell. Together they might look.... familiar.

I own a whole rack of crappy, no-name cowbells. I got them for $50 off craigslist. Check it out:

I really need to invest in a REAL cowbell, but I'm still trying to decide... haha.

I have about a dozen cowbells. The deeper, throatier African style ones are nice, but don't write off the smaller Latin cha-cha style bells either, which have enough cut to severely injure the audience.

I have an old LP chrome cowbell. I think it's the Deluxe Bongo Bell. That's the one it resembles from their website. Mounted on the BD hoop. Sounds great though I'd like to get the Salsa bell at some point. I also have an LP cha-cha bell which I never use. It was my first bell and I stopped using it when I got the chrome one.

Edit: Though now that I think of it, maybe I'll pull it out and play the intro to "Killing in the Name of" properly!
