My favorite, go-to instrument in the studio has been a large stainless steel stock pot. I don’t know its technical size measurements but it’s big enough to hold a small human. I love the way it sounds. If you smack the bottom you get a great big clunk with a ringing sound. If you hit the rim with a stick it has a lot more sustenance. If you smack it on the side beneath the handle you get a nice thwack sound. It is a steel drum, kick drum, rack tom, and cymbals all in one. When I’m done, I can make soup.
