Geeee, man...silly question. <IMG SRC="http://www.interruptor.ch/cgi-bin/discu ... /happy.gif" ALT=":&#41;"> Depends on kicking-style and amount of anger, I guess ..heh heh ..you sure can kick the sh&#42;t outa' your amp. Btw, if you even kick/or even slap 'gently' amp with spring while the amp is up in volume and reverb knob is hard-up&#40;right&#41;...you get pretty bashy and loud 'spring crash'... the whole thing is a dumb-bumber act..lol. you bassicly shake the spring...and so you get the 'boing..shshhs' .., you can pull the tank out of the amp, keep it connected &#40;may need longer leads thou...&#41; and then kick just the tank as much as you want to... or shake it... or drum with silver spoons on it &#40;that have not been done yet...as I know of&#41;... <IMG SRC="http://www.interruptor.ch/cgi-bin/discu ... /happy.gif" ALT=":&#41;"> <BR> <BR>/respects, <BR>/Mike Zee aka Dr. ZEE

that's right pavle <BR> <BR>to be on the safe side you may consider recording an amp-kicking session and then draw from the archive when needing some spring crashes. this way you will only endanger your amp once. <BR>if you think this would takes the emotional drive out of your dub mix then it's "no risk no fun" for you <IMG SRC="http://www.interruptor.ch/cgi-bin/discu ... /happy.gif" ALT=":&#41;">

Be warned though, exploding fireworks inside a guitar amp can cause some damage, but it makes some fantastic sounds.

Don&acute;t use a hammer, use a REAL axe <BR> <BR>Drop from third floor is also cool <BR>&#40;for a more "wodden" sound that is&#41; <BR> <BR>HM :-&#41;
