probably. probably not.



I gave a serious answer. A garbage can WILL sound like trash.

Anything other than a bass drum will ****ing sound crappy. Why do you need a makeshift drum anyways?

A drum machine?

To pose such a question, you lead us to believe that you have no intention of purchasing something new to fill this role. Sounds like a classic example of trying to improvise with zero budget.

Nobody knows what you have lying around the house, or what the acoustic properties of these various items may be. The answer is to start picking up whatever you have lying around and beat on it. Repeat this process until you find something that seems to work.

If you're prepared to go out and purchase whatever pseudo-bass drum item someone pitches to you, just buy a real bass drum instead.

1 - chop down a tree
2 - cut a section of the trunk to length.
3 - hollow out the center of that section.
4 - kill a buffalo.
5 - skin it.
6 - stretch sections of the hide across the ends of the tree section with lacing.
7 - ?????????
8 - PROFIT!!!

SYK, the only way to properly do it is to hunt the buffalo from a covered wagon, like MEN once did.

You can get one bass string, a block of wood about 35 inches across and put a truss rod in it, one tuning knob at the end, one single string bass bridge, put a bass pickup in the center of the string area where the single thickest string you can find will go, dampen the strings with a cloth near the tuner and bridge, run this through some beast amp, and hit it with the foot pedal.
#26
That's a whamola.

Tis a whamola indeed. minus the foot pedal and cloth.

You know, if you had a dedicated Whamola player, you could remove the Bass drum entirely.

It'd sound pretty weird though.
