Rob’s Sterling Silver Water Pitcher had to happen - a SWARM sample had to become a library!

The story

Rob the perpetual-tapper here. As no surprise, participating in the SWARM of “C’s” just wasn’t enough for me – of course I then had to turn my “Sterling Silver Water Pitcher” into a library. My wife picked it up for 5 (CAD) at a garage sale and for many years it has occupied a prime spot in our kitchen as a container for various cooking utensils. When CH put out the call for “C’s” I immediately knew what to sample. It has some similarities with my Coffee Can Gamelan Metallophone while at the same time delivering it’s own character. I hope you enjoy using this one!

  • An interesting mallet!

    The only way to describe what I'm hearing while playing this, is that it sounds as if you combined some african woodwinds and mallets at the same time. It really reminds me of something you will listen in Toto's Africa keyboard solo. It is a very, very interesting sound!

    Even though it is based only in one sample file, it plays nicely with a playable range up to 4 octaves, though the lowest one sounds a little artifical due to the stretching of the attack. You might also notice that there is some slight white noise that fades before the actual resonance of the entire sound.

    I also need to say that I am definitely not a fan for the selected colours in the GUI, but inside you will find a reverb, an attack and a volume knob. If you are looking for a different kind of mallet, this may be a good option!
