Mallets On a Bass Guitar

I'm a drummer for many years, & I borrowed a friends bass guitar. I attached mics to the tuner & to the body. Then I took mallets & struck on the strings & also the body & neck while recording. That was a long time ago, but I am presently looking to buy a cheapo bass for this purpose.

Yes I do still play drums, though I've had to put them away due to family members moving in.<br />

The sound of a fan is a drone, I struck the many different areas with the mallets. This includes the strings. The sounds was not of a dronning type.

When I want this effect, I turn on a fan.

That sounds interesting. Do you still play drums?
