Click & Bell ?


Well-known Member
Recently I've been playing a Ridgerider cowbell at the same time as I'm cross-sticking a rim click.
Actually, by positioning the cowbell just beyond the butt of my stick when cross-sticking, I can play just click or bell & click, bell & stick on head or just the bell. I found this useful.
Anyone else doing this? I just occurred to me recently, 62 years into drumming.

That’s interesting. Never thought to try it. My snare and cowbells aren’t close enough, though. Still, I think it’s cool.
Between 1:30-2:00 on the snare its a rim click
Right at about 2:00 I can get both at the same time
From 2:01-2:30 it'll be a dampened cowbell with a little snare shell echo, or if I lift up the stick a bit then of course a normal bell tones are available
