    that's from a solo-cd by Gerd Reese, who i met today on a music fair.

    He makes slaprings, a small iron tube that you slip over your thumb, makes your slapping sound cooler.. :)

    Where does Reese sell the "slap rings"? Maybe some of us would like to try one (if they aren't too expensive).

    Did you get a good look at the slap ring? Could we make one ourselves by buying a cheap ring large enough to wear on the thumb?
