    You should of done some blast beats or something !

    • UKrocketeer
    • April 25, 2012

    Damnit you beat me to it!

    • aaronedgardrum
    • April 25, 2012

    The trick was sealing off the other holes, I taped over the vent, used a 6″
    port right in the center and the post mount I retrofitted with a tube from
    the smoke machine, so the only way air could get out was through the port.
    Add in the added density of the smoke/fog and it ends up creating a vortex,
    or smoke ring!

    what is the smoke stuff?

    • Hugo Ribeiro
    • April 25, 2012

    hahaha…. damn bro! WTF do guys smoke in Winnipeg??? lol

    low frequency waves ftw!

    EVERYTHING needs more cowbell, it’s impossible to ever appease the need for
    extra bells of cow.

  1. [..YouTube..] haha! I wonder if you could use a trigger to control the smoke, you can pretty much make midi do anything… πŸ˜‰

  2. [..YouTube..] I was pressing the button like a chump!

  3. [..YouTube..] This is fucking awesome! I saw that other video of the vortex cannon you posted. I’m glad you got your hands on a smoke machine! I never knew my bass drum put out that much air!

  4. [..YouTube..] how would look this with “Bleed” ?

    • TomΓ‘s Cortez Salazar
    • April 25, 2012

    how would look this with “Bleed” ?

  5. [..YouTube..] Ya man! There’s a bit of a trick to it, you have to seal off any other holes so that it has to be concentrated just out the port. That combined with the added density of the smoke vs just air makes the smoke rings that can push crap over πŸ˜€

  6. [..YouTube..] your a funny dude this was illmatic bro

    • theskateboardt619
    • April 25, 2012

    your a funny dude this was illmatic bro

  7. [..YouTube..] I actually tried with double bass thinking it would be AWESOME, but it just shot out a really messy stream of smoke without any pushing power πŸ™

  8. [..YouTube..] hahah thanks!

  9. [..YouTube..] LOL! When you rigging up a scope?

  10. [..YouTube..] Oh MAAAN. If this thing had more range that would DEFINITELY be in the cards πŸ˜›

    I can see it now, duct taping a telescope to a bass drum haha

  11. [..YouTube..] Fucking fantastic!!! Greatest shit ever lmao.

    • MrJD318
    • April 25, 2012

    Fucking fantastic!!! Greatest shit ever lmao.

  12. [..YouTube..] LMAO!!

  13. [..YouTube..] Yea, I was gonna ask that.. I figured you’d have to close of all the vents. Still a hella cool physics experiment!

  14. [..YouTube..] Looks like something already done by the Scientific Phenomentalist.

  15. [..YouTube..] We could go so ridiculously over the top with this idea lmao

    • aaronedgardrum
    • April 25, 2012

    We could go so ridiculously over the top with this idea lmao

  16. [..YouTube..] Yeah man totally! I gotta find more silly crap I can do with drums (without wrecking them) lol

  17. [..YouTube..] haha thanks!!

    • aaronedgardrum
    • April 25, 2012

    haha thanks!!

  18. [..YouTube..] Oh for SURE been done before. (Maybe not with a drum, though? Dunno, never searched it) But I even got the idea from that “Student Science” channel. They did it with a cardboard box. πŸ™‚

  19. [..YouTube..] I would like to see you play a hereta with double bass using that thing! πŸ˜€

    • Dragon5n

  20. [..YouTube..] nice groove man!

    • Lixin Qin
    • April 25, 2012

    nice groove man!

  21. [..YouTube..] Man, I totally have that in the out takes! BUT with fast bass drum playing it just turned into a cloud without any like… pushing power behind it. πŸ™

  22. [..YouTube..] Thanks!! πŸ™‚

  23. [..YouTube..] I want this for a gig!!!

    • Tim Lawrence
    • April 25, 2012

    I want this for a gig!!!

  24. [..YouTube..] haha DO IT! Just be careful, it gets residue inside your drum, you’ll want to either use a drum you don’t care about or maybe cover the inside with plastic sheeting or something?

    • aaronedgardrum

  28. [..YouTube..] Damn, if that’s what it does to STYROFOAM CUPS, just imagine what it would do to a FULLY GROWN MAN IN WAR ARMOR or a FULLY GROWN TYRANNOSAURUS REX!

  29. [..YouTube..] aaron you’re a crazy man…a crazy man with drums… that’s awesome πŸ˜€

  30. [..YouTube..] aaron you’re a crazy man…a crazy man with drums… that’s awesome πŸ˜€

  31. [..YouTube..] So I see you’ve mastered the Thu’um and somehow enchanted your bass drum with it. Can you teach me?

  32. [..YouTube..] Yaaa man, I was disappointed too! I was gonna do two bass drums simultaneously as well, but the 16″ kick I brought was far less effective

  33. [..YouTube..] Awesome! Thanks a lot πŸ˜€

  34. [..YouTube..] hahaha thanks bro!! πŸ™‚

  37. [..YouTube..] Meet me at the throat of the world. There is much to discuss.

  38. [..YouTube..] It’d look awesome If Dave Lombardo would use this on stage when playing Angel Of Death:)

  44. [..YouTube..] The beauty of being self employed! I can slothfully roll outta bed at the crack of noon, screw around with a smoke machine and some toys in an elementary school. AND it technically, kinda qualifies as part of my job! πŸ˜›

  45. [..YouTube..] Aaron very cool, I like that way your mind works! Use that on anyone heckling you in a club (:

  48. [..YouTube..] thanks bro πŸ™‚

  49. [..YouTube..] hey man, when i saw the first few seconds: meh, ok
    THEN when u played a beat with the smoke building up: u should patent the bass drum smoke cannon! million dollar idea!

  50. [..YouTube..] Okay, now play a double bass groove.

  51. [..YouTube..] Who else was waiting for him to bust out “Painkiller” ?

    Who else was waiting for him to bust out “Painkiller” ?

  52. [..YouTube..] unfortunately, I have a few double bass shots in the out takes. The smoke rings ended up messy and without any “pushing” power, so I cut them. I thought double bass was going to be the most badass thing ever with this!

    Saw David Lovering from the Pixies do this at a club in Glendale but he put rubber latex over the head and pulled it out with his hand and let it snap back into place…..it was mounted sideways on a stand and he was swiveling it around wailing people across the room. badass smoke rings
