Just one of those spur-of-the-moment gig pictures. A couple of Guardalas with Rovners. The screws are set opposite so I can play duals without them hanging up.

Hey, I play it and also sing on 'You Can't Do That' plus a few others. I also keep a tambourine handy. So now its the 'dreaded sax player who sings and plays tambourine, cowbell and of course all the saxes'. :) You'll notice that's a pretty good drumstick too, not a really chewed up one like the drummer usually grudgingly hands over. And the cowbell - its one of those made for a drum set so it has good quality. I hadn't played that one before yesterday and it surprised me with its resonance which was a little too much 'ring' for the Beatles song, so I had to quickly position my hand to get the right damping on it. There's a way to play any instrument in a musical fashion and cowbell is no exception. One thing for sure, you keep it away from any microphone and keep it pointed straight up. Damn things can be ear-blasters if you point the bell at somebody.

All my cowbells have duct tape on them. It's bad when the congero says that your timing is fine, but you are too damn loud... I also used a clave stick rather than a drum stick (from a broken clave set).
