I have a gig at a music festival coming up and have built several "stomp boards" to get the sound of a juke joint floor... all to no avail.... so,

built my own porch floor.  1  by  rough cut oak planks and a 4x4 post.  With a mic laying on the floor a real thump/thump comes through.

 

Here are 5 CBGs built for sale in the performers booth...

extreme measures... but,... what the heck?

 

the best,

 

Wichita Sam

LOL Electric porch!

You could put a set of caster wheels on one side pointed up, a handle on the other side, and some eyebolts in the 4X4s for tie down points. When you're ready to pack up just flip it up, strap on your gear, tip it the rest of the way back onto the casters so you can roll it and everything out the door in one go.

Electric Porch, great name for an album.

needs a hammock and a beer table

Or a barbecue grill and a rusty old cooler.
