My first attempt at a stomp box. The pick up is a padded headphone. The screws on the left side of the plate were kept a bit loose to try and get a snare effect.

Hey Ted,

Thanks for the compliment and friend request. Glad you guys like the sound as I don't have anything to compare it too. It's an old kitchen drawer chopped down! Yes I'm from NJ, The top of Morris county near Rt. 80. Pine Hill is near the shore? See you Saturday?
