Hey everybody, I have been wanting to try this out for a while, and I wish I did it earlier.  Took an old car speaker and wired it to a quarter inch jack, plug it into my audio interface, and play on the speaker with drumsticks. Sounds great! Awesome kick drum sounds. I have heard of people doing this and using the speaker to mic a kick drum, but hitting the speaker directly makes pretty darn good kick sounds. You can download my drum rack filled with 49 separate speaker hits: Speakerhits. Use them for whatever you like.

Have Fun. Make Music,

    Very cool, thanks a lot!

    Been awhile, sir — too long, if I may say so!

    A variation on the Yamaha sub kick, but an even more direct approach, interesting post.
