"Bonk" sound effect
« on: March 27, 2012, 04:42:43 AM »
In the Stooges shorts, a whip was used as the sound effect for a slap, a kettledrum for a punch to the stomach, and a tearing of the cloth for hair - usually Larry's - being pulled out. What was used as the sound effect for a bonk on the head (or the knocking of heads together)?

It was probably a low pitched wood block.  (Percussionist here....)
