    Gawd, punching with those rings on is a swell way to break four fingers.

  2. Telecustard says:

    If someone out there made a fully functional Alesis SR-16 the size of a Zippo lighter I would buy it right now. That would look cool on your fist, and everytime you punched something you could get cool percussive sounds.

  3. technogeek says:

    Well, that would make an impression…

    (I sorta-almost like the ring. It’s not much clunkier than many school rings…)

    I imagine he has Korg synth rings on the other hand and they duke it out.

    “Just when the Korg is down, you think it’s over – but no! Here comes the sMPC – Bam! Bam! Bam!”

    Q. What’s the difference between a drummer and a drum machine?

    A. You only have to punch the information into a drum machine once.

    Looks like an mpc60 or mpc 3000!!!

  8. fatrobot says:

    why is the drummer still at the door ?
    cuz he doesn’t know when to come in.

  9. geckodfw says:

    No thank you. Can you imagine, all day, every day, “Hey, is that a computer on your hand?” “Hey, is that a cash register?” “Hey, why do you have a ring like an ATM?”

    These rings are by artist Bill McMullen, who currently has an amazing show up at The Constant Gallery in Los Angeles!! Big fan…

    They appear to be Akai MPCs, probably 2500s.

  12. Anonymous says:

    It’s an Akai MPC sampler. Though drums are often sampled I wouldn’t just call it a drum machine.

  13. Anonymous says:

    how do you know when the drummer is at your door?

    his knocking speeds up

  14. cinemajay says:

    The drum machine ring is no longer listed :(

  15. TroofSeeker says:

    Real scary, threatened by a geek wearing rings that look like ATM machines.

    There it is, Carnac the Maladjusted. Remember threatening to punch me if I got your title wrong again? Get four of these and the Stabbing Pen, and come on down. The challenge to me is to turn the other cheek. After the beating I took yesterday from those pizza creeps, this should be fun.

    that is BOSS

  17. Brett Burton says:

    It would be way better if they were different drum machines. Who needs 4 MPCs? What about an 808 and a Linn Drum? I mean c’mon, let’s stop fooling around and get serious.
