Upright Bass Drum

Upright Bass Drum


I was given an old Upright Bass from the 50’s, that was in rough shape. I thought I might have it worked on to get playable but the endeavor proved not to be worth it. I decided to sample it in a different way. I used it as a drum set . I put snares on it, used a bass drum pedal, mallets, hit the strings, made fret noises , etc. I think the result was pretty earthy with some pretty indistinguishable sounds (my favorite!) I was going for the “What would Tom Waits like” kind of direction on this, assuming he actually used Kontakt instruments 🙂
