    hell yeah i would smash any instrument. at the end of one gig i threw my bass through the drummers bass drum and it broke his leg. i also threw a bass into the crowd and hit some guy in the ribs and broke 3 of them. ive hacked up basses w/ chainsaws. ive sword fighted w/ guitarist w/ my basses. i won. needless to say ill destroy anything anyday anytime, including basses

    Wow, talk about a fitting username. Takes a lot of smarts to destroy things you know....

    It's also better if you "spice up" the stories by imagining some personal injuries. :rolleyes:

    I've only been playing for about 7 months, and I know I can't afford to buy anther guitar....some people just can't afford to get a new/used one. And with the way I'm coming into music, my bass is starting to become one of the only things I want to keep in my life. I happen to agree with everyone who would just donate it, or even sell it.

    i would never smash up a guitar; knowing me i would endup hurting myself in the process!
     
  9. I would smash a guitar because that was the stylish thing to do once in a forgotten era....but a bass.........naw......too precious!!

    If I was to smash would, itd have to be one worthy of being smashed.....one me or any of you would never pay money for.

  12. My last year of high school, I am going to take the schools Peavey T-40 and smash it. So many bad times I have had with it. I hate it, and it hates me.

    Oh man, victory will be sweet.

    I couldn't do that to a bass...I've turned into quite a tree-hugger and hate to waste anything. At the last Wooten show that I went to, Vic had a leash on one of his Foderas...he'd toss it across the stage and use the leash to pull it back. Late in the show...at a point where everyone is going crazy, Vic starts running around trying to find one that was in tune (or still worked...one had died) and ended up slamming another Fodera into the stage...it really made me sick to my stomach to see it....

    It was a weird show...Vic was pretty quiet the whole show and then just went NUTS...kind of like a fireworks display...nice controlled show with lots of pretty colors then the grand finale comes and all HE&& breaks loose. Didn't seem spontaneous at all...
     
  16. i said "ya, as long as i get another one"

    but what i would really do is for that song take some crappy old bass that only cost like $99 or something and smash that... then when its over grab my real bass.

    but ya, i guess there is really no reason for doing it...................

    I've gotta say, if I was a drummer and the jerkass bassist threw HIS instrument through MY bass drum, I'd shove my sticks where the sun don't shine. That said, I could never smash my instruments -- I get attached to the basses at the STORE! I was really sad when they finally sold that Geddy Lee that I so loved to play.

    The first time some over-emotional guitarist makes a break for my amp with his guitar is the last time he'll ever use his legs to move again.
