Build Your Own Stomp Box

Back to the Gear Room

If you've ever wanted a stomp box so you can accompany yourself I found some easy plans on the web;

I bought one of their pickups (no affiliation) and a wood cigar box from eBay, and put it together in about 20 minutes.

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!
