    Well that’s… interesting

  2. nname263 says:

    i like this πŸ˜‰

  3. nickpov3y says:

    You should of done some blast beats or something !

  4. UKrocketeer says:

    Damnit you beat me to it!

  5. aaronedgardrum says:

    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!

  6. Luuk Meijwaard says:

    what is the smoke stuff?

  7. Hugo Ribeiro says:

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

  8. AaronEdgarTube says:

    ahah thanks!

  9. Austin Power says:

    finally! someone did this

  10. XTheSonofTheSunX says:

    low frequency waves ftw!

  11. aaronedgardrum says:

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

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

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

  14. Kelavmeister says:

    [..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!

  15. djcocho says:

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

  16. TomΓ‘s Cortez Salazar says:

    how would look this with “Bleed” ?

  17. [..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˜€

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

  19. theskateboardt619 says:

    your a funny dude this was illmatic bro

  20. [..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™

  21. [..YouTube..] hahah thanks!

  22. janken919 says:

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

  23. [..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

  24. MrJD318 says:

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

  25. MrJD318 says:

    Fucking fantastic!!! Greatest shit ever lmao.

  26. janken919 says:

    [..YouTube..] LMAO!!

  27. Kelavmeister says:

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

  28. skrueg1 says:

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

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

  30. aaronedgardrum says:

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

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

  32. [..YouTube..] haha thanks!!

  33. aaronedgardrum says:

    haha thanks!!

  34. [..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™‚

  35. Dragon5n says:

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

    [..YouTube..] nice groove man!

  38. Lixin Qin says:

    nice groove man!

  39. [..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™

  40. [..YouTube..] Thanks!! πŸ™‚

  41. TimPaiste97 says:

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

  42. Tim Lawrence says:

    I want this for a gig!!!

  43. [..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?

    [..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!

  51. c0d3x001 says:

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

  52. c0d3x001 says:

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

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

  54. [..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

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

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

  57. aaronedgardrum says:

    hahaha thanks bro!! πŸ™‚

  70. [..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˜›

  71. samiam8959 says:

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

  77. me86680 says:

    [..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!

  78. PuzzleDNB says:

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

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

  80. Boone Meadows says:

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

  81. [..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
