Poor man's poarchboard. My guitar buddy got the real thing a couple of months ago. Pretty neat and easy way to give a little rhythm accompaniment. My problem is I can't play and sing and stomp at the same time. Feeble brain can't keep up.
(No personal affiliation, just use one from time to time.)
I used to get an effect something like this when playing acoustically by just putting my guitar case under my foot. I guess I could just put a pickup in the case--of course then I'd have to put out a can for tips, since the case would be closed. . .
The same thing can be used as a trigger for a drum brain.
Now here is my idea of a Stomp Box:
This thing caught my eye because this really average guitar player with a harp rack was playing on the street--and his tip can was really filling up--but the drum set was grabbing people like crazy!
