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.

Pixie Dust or whatever the forum members have been smoking that come up with these silly Off Topic Lounge threads.

18" JBL, a 1000w amp, a trigger with a sample of a 26" 3 ply maple and a volume knob....for those gigs where an inequity needs to be nudged in my favor ;)

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 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.

Andy's wind chimes
My wind chimes are maligned enough as it is, without further torture. If they go in the bass drum, so do you, & I'll play The Wombles greatest hits on a loop relentlessly. If you plead with sufficient sincerity, I just might switch to a Kenny G medley once an hour ;)
