After listening to many such critters on you tube and the Logarhythm I have, I have come to the conclusion that most if not all  have the same problem.  Without added "special effects", they do not…Continue

So I made this stomp box.I used hard wood on the edges and ply for the top and bottom. I wired two small speakers to the bottom with a 1/4 inch jack out the back. It sounded awful. I packed with…Continue

Joseph, I've made one, it's called a Stumpf Fiddle. (NOT STUMP, it's supposed to have an F on the end). Tips ... hit stuff, see what sounds good, add it, repeat. :-))

A few of the perc. things that I've made ...

A cajón, utilising short lengths of 0.052 guitar string as an adjustable snare inside.



The obligatory 'license plate stompbox' with a big piezo inside (yawn, we've all seen these).



Small stomper. A chunk of Iroko, thick rubber base, brass jackplate and dual-piezos. Real tiny (fits in your palm) and real bassy.



Shaky-Egg Pedal ... ripped almost verbatim from Pete Farmer (http://www.footdrums.com/), thanks for some awesome close-up pics, Pete. lol



Again taken from the Pete Farmer pedal, this time expanding the concept into a double pedal. One side has four zils, the other side has some jingle-bells.
