Someone needs to build a musical bong.

I made a 5 stringed bowed electric instrument out of clear acrylic. Looked like a bong with strings. Used to have a picture, but it's lost.
get a hammered sound from guitar or bass! http://www.stringhammer.com
hand-made version to raise money for manufacturing... kind of like kickstarter, but you get a fully functional item now

Album!

Exactly. I'm a "purist" myself. Glass devices only and to be even more specific: Pyrex.

If it's not Pyrex then it should be wood, like a rosewood.

So, how much do you compress the signal for best results when mic'ing a bong? Or is that a DIY question.

UTFSF got me nowhere on "compression and bongs".

This has given me an idea! Someone e-mail the electric modeling cowbell guy! I'd bet a nickle and a sandwich he's got a modeling bong in the works. That said, there's a pretty well miced bong hit on Down's first record.

Ummm.. I have the perfect setup for bong recording.. Yeah, so if there's anyone in the Salt Lake area who needs to record a hit, just bring me the bong with enough goodies for a few bowls.. It may take a few takes..

No charge..

Thanks.
