    My set seems naked without a cowbell and block. An important sound source for any Latin flavoured tunes or just straight groove rocking (for example Honky Tonk Women-Rolling stones)

    all the best...

    I like Cowbells so much I have three of them

    Jam Blocks are better though in my opinion, I have two of those.

    Cool Cowbells Rock!

    Amen, 1DB and Yom!

    I play an LP Bongo (what else???) Cowbell...and I'm seriously thinking of rigging it up to a foot pedal (kinda like this cat)...

    That way you can play the cowbell while keepin' your hands busy on the drums, man...
    keep the beat goin' ... Don't keep it to yourself!

    I put a cowbell on my kit about a month ago, and I'm still getting used to it, although I really like the sound.

    They are fun when used sparingly. I think the cow bell sounds good on "Hair of the Dog" by Nazerath.

    If you don't like the cowbell then you don't love America!

    I have so much love for my Ridge Rider.
    My metal band covers Motley Crue's "Live Wire" and there's a cowbell part at the end....3 hits, that's it...and every time I play it the crowd goes mental.

    I heart cowbell.

    i like the way rage against the machine uses it
    play till the day i die. it makes more sense that way.
