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

Guess I'll take that as a NO.

Hello everyone, new to the group.

I've been building my own box for a acoustic CGB out of Cedar and the box has an excellent tone. I've seen some percussion pieces like stomp boxes, suitcase bass and other pieces. I got me to thinking, Has anyone made an entire drum set out of these pieces or their own made boxes?

Any of you guys from Central Scotland ?

No, there is no hole in the crate, only the holes that are used to carry the old crate. It is made of decent? wood and was originally made to carry bottles of wine for a London company and is probably Victorian.. I had used if to transport gear for many years and decided to try it as a drum about a year ago. Luckily I have a second  identical crate.

I use it, together with a tambourine on a hi hat pedal whilst playing cigar box instruments. I'm thinking of trying a wooden beater on the pedal instead of the rubber one or the felt ones that I usually use.

Hi camouflagI've been using a similar (but smaller) packing crate bass drum for some time now. It doubles as a 'flight case' for much of my gear whilst travelling. It's well loud enough for small gigs and I use a bodhran mic holder for larger gigs.

I can also use it to hold a beer or whatever whilst I'm playing.

Well, here we are then. Electric bodhran - no effects, no bass added - just the raw sound of wood (very cheap plywood) on wood (hazel).

The sound clip is on my page but I have attempted to add a link

Hi all,

I started using stomp boxes and stuff but now I use a wooden box with a bass drum kick pedal and a hi hat with a tambor (headless tambourine) on top, however I have been messing around recently and at the week end I built an electric bodhran To me it sound awsome and plays very very well.

It has a standard jack socket plus volume and tone controls
