After a couple of years hauling around a 22" kick drum, and a heavy duty hi-hat with a tambourine and looper and PA, Guitar, etc, etc. It was getting to be a bit much . At the same time, Im not a drummer, so having real drums in front of me at a show brings a certain expectation. I thought it would be better to have something to accompany my guitar and vocals without the size, weight, and footprint of real drums.
This is my second Mississippi Stomp Box. Basically just a foot pedal with a striking pad over an inclosed microphone element within a resonate chamber. Sounds like a bass drum when run through an amplifier.
