The Spider Bone
The spider bone was originally designed to pick up the kick drum instead of using a conventional mic. It later was used as something I could scream into. As you can see there is a glass bowl at the end of the horn. This is were I mounted some cheep fisher price mic I found at the Salvation Army. What you don’t see is the spring that runs through the horn and is attached to the metal funnel that comes out in the bowl. The only problem with spider bone as a kick drum mic was that it kept falling over. I guess I should have spent a bit of time on the stand.
