Banging the Kettle

September 19, 2021

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.
