what song has the best bong sample? should the bong be miked close to the bowl, on the tube, or at the carb? or a stereo pair set back a few feet?

it's hard to record a lighter, I've found. there's a lot of transient detail in the lighter sound and it doesn't come through well with a cheap condenser mic.

This is one of my favorite thread titles ever.

But I need to know if this is a wizard bong we're talking about here, or a skull bong that tells the future. If it's a wizard bong, mic the bowl, and if there's someone in the room saying "dude" and "bro" a lot, mic him too. If it's a skull bong, mic the prophecy. The future will fuck you up, and the skull bong's words will take you straight to 4:20, regardless of what time it is.

Easy Star All Stars Dub Side of the Moon - Money

There's a lo-fi sample on their website.

Don't know about fidelity, but it's definitley my favourite bong sample.

I once mic'ed my buddy tryin to make some type of sippin sound, or i dont' konw what the fuck he was tryin to do.. but it came out sounding like the best bong sample I've ever heard. sounds more realistic than the real thing mic'ed. We used a Nady SCM900 mic about 4 inches from his mouth. I'll try to bring the sample in tomorrow and post it for y'all to hear.

I know its not as cool as the real thing. But if you're looking for sound quality.....
