My parents' big TV just broke :) When you switch it on, it switches itself off with a nice little "pfew" (kind of a "let me rest a little longer" kinda thing). I wanted to record it but it started to smell like burnt so I'd rather not switch it on anymore.
H-o-w-e-v-e-r, I have a sledgehammer. You can see where I'm going here, so I'll ask you for your experience and advice here, on potential dangers but also techniques as to how to smash it to record the best sound. I've only got one shot, although once I'll have taken care of the CRT I'll probably do various fall heights and stuff.
So, do you have any advice for me? So far here's what I'm planning:
- long sleeves and jeans
- safety glasses
- gloves if I want to play around with glass debris
Thanks in advance for your replies :)
SUGGESTIONS SO FAR:
- using a rock instead of a sledgehammer
- dropping it from 10ft on a sharp metal object inside a big metal container
