I've seen a few people use thimbles and this guitar pick that wraps around the finger. But depending on what sound you are looking for you can use anything. A beer bottle would work.

ive rocked out with drumming brushes, there cool cuz theyhave the brush part, and the hard part on the other end, plus you can pull the bushes out as far as you want (to an extent) and then change the sound even more :)

i've tried many different ideas and drum sticks seem to suit me best, since my washboard is kinda set up like a drum set anyways. i also use the drum sticks to bang aroun don various trash item i find aswell...

Support StP!

Donations go towards paying our monthly server fees, adding new features to the website, and occasionally putting a burrito in Matt's mouth.

Total amount
$20.00
Goal
$100.00

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $20.00 of $50.00
    The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.
  2. Buy Matt a Beer
    $20.00 of $75.00
    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully his will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $20.00 of $100.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.
  4. Finance the Shopping Cart
    $20.00 of $200.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.
