How would I get this sound out of my bass? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Zgmu_4a99as&feature=related Tuning, muffling ext...
1. Triggers.
2. Doesn't matter what head you put on it really, probably clear with a patch and just tune it as low as you possibly can without the head actually falling off. Feel free to stuff it with as much or as little as possible (probably filled to the brim) because when everything's tuned that low it really doesn't make a difference.

This sounds sarcastic, and it sort of is in a way but it's true... I just don't get why anyone wants their bass drum to sound like plastic clicking...

Tbh it really sounds like shit. You might aswell leave out the bass drum and get a plank of wood to hit with the pedal.
The best sound of a drum you can get is by not having a damn thing in your drum... Maybe a small rolled up towel against the batter - well that's my idea atleast.
anything stopping the drum from doing it's job kills the sound and ruins it.

this guy is using a super kick 1 or 2, tune really low, with like 2 or 3 pillows in there.... or he's using triggers
