I clap and use other impulsive human sounds such as a shouting "TA"!

That's why if you read our 'Why clapping doesn't work' lesson over a RealTraps.com you'll understand why we came up with these nifty fold-up RealTraps. Perfect for putting in your handbag!

You'll never question a home-sized studio again!

I only "clap my hands quickly" to save Tinkerbell. Or when the checks arrive in the mail.

Careful Philly, you're blowing the 80Hz standing wave into action. This chatroom is obviously to small and square and reflective for micing up big-ass tings......heh

Better go back to clapping......

yea i clap, and whistle lots of times too. I remember one time i was checking out an apartment and when I got into the room that would make the most sense for my home studio I began clapping and whistling a bit without really thinking, i think the realitor thought I was a nut!

Me too...but to keep it discrete, I clap with only one hand.
