make that bass not base

Comment by Mike "Honeyboy" Edwards on March 17, 2017 at 7:19am

Grey Bear, Yes the box has got a bit of depth to it so it has a decent acoustic base to it. Lid and base are only 1/8" ply hence the racing number plate for stomping point. Just sorting a tambourine arrangement that will slot into the top metal plate with the pre drilled hole, will post another pic when 100% finished

Comment by Slow Blues Dani & Ol' Grey Bear on March 13, 2017 at 10:10am
Looks great, Mike. Is it bassey? Wish I could use a stomp box and/or looper pedal. I'll look forward to seeing you stomping out a beat on stage someday instead.

Stomp box, total expenditure £3.75 for Piezo and jack, great feeling of satisfaction when you can use your garage junk to good effect

I'm after a half decent budget bass amp for my newly constructed foot stomp box , any recommendations ?

My wife came along to Boxstock. She managed to turn up in the afternoon just at the point that I was buying a CBG. How do they do that!!!
She really enjoyed the evening gig and wants to come along next year.
I agree with Mike it would be great to see bemuzic play at Boxstock next year.

thanks Mike. Yes would definitely like to come to the next one if I can....

Bea,

I listened to some of your stuff on your page, impressive ! why don't you impact on those mentioned woman attendance figures and do a turn at the next Boxstock, you would go down a treat.
