Put some fluid inside a musical instrument for a different sound?
since I drink a lot of milk, sometimes I like to drum on the empty plastic milk containers for fun. Today I was drumming on a couple that still had milk in them, and the sound was different from an empty one, more fluid and sweet. It made me think a musician or designer of musical instruments could put fluid inside drums, or other instruments such as guitars, for a different sound?
What I'm thinking is put a chamber inside musical instruments that you could put varying amounts of fluid into, you could experiment with different fluids and amounts of fluid. Possibly the chamber could be removable. Or is it a bad idea, is what you want reverbation in air rather than fluid?
