Unfortunately I do not have the tools and am often on the move these days to workshop something but I was curious as there are CBG Kits if there are easy assembled stompbox kits out there as well?

Also curious, in a busking set up, how a stomp would sound through something like a Boss Katana Mini or a pignose. Extra battery powered amp. 

Hi, I've mounted the guitar style EQ's into a small pedal size box, you can then use it for whatever you wish.

like Pick said a bit earlier, its best to use a amp/speaker that can handle that sort of input without self distructing . I think the smaller the speaker the less like a kick drum is the sound. For me the deeper the sound the better.

Taff

funny you say that, one of the images i found on the google search had a boss EQ pedal built into the bottom of the box..

Any box you find that you can tap your foot on is your DIY kit.  solder a piezo to a jack and glue the disk to the inside and you're done.  you can even get the pre-made piezo with jack from gitty.

speaker/socks/carpet-cover/capaciters/eq are the next doors to open to explore and enjoy.

  1. It would surely distort through a pignose as does anything u play through it

My new book has complete plans for a foot stomper.  Presales happening now at www.poormansguitar.com

Cool!

I got mine ;)
