  • Cowbell [where?]


  • #2
    I'd probably just use a tom rim.
    Stick twirling - because you obviously have mastered all other aspects of drumming already, right?

      I was wondering what most people are using for a cowbell on their vdrums. I have a TD-12 and don’t want to dedicate a pad or a cymbal to a cowbell, but would like to add one. Any suggestions?

      I got the fever and the only prescription is more cowbell.

      Hey Blackhawk if you have an extra pedal trigger you could use that. You could play a beat along with the cowbell with your other foot and could assign a tamborine to some of the presets also ( adds a nice effect to the beat), Depending on the song you're playing. You could do a DIY to an old cowbell and wrap it with rubber and place a piezo inside it.

        Keith from X-Drums http://www.x-drums.com/ was kind enough to make and give me a skull trigger. This works great for both cowbell and holding your headphones.

          More Cowbell

          I use the rim of a PD-8 on Tom 1 of my TD-6 and on my TD-3 I have the HH set to Cowbell and trigger it with my FD-8. That way I have two different cowbell sounds.

          Gotta have that cowbell!

                  I just have a 10" mesh pad on my TD20 rack to my left next to my hats - use that for cowbell, rim click and shaker!

                    When you can't get enough cowbell set up an octave of them on your SPD-20 or your SPD-S.

                      Great description. I can just hear it reading that


                      I have one of my mini triggers made from plumbing parts set up as a cowbell.

                            Yeah but it keeps moving away from the kit. Wish he hadn't sent the cow with it
