Stomp Box

[Note] This doesn’t actually work anywhere near as well as I’d hoped. But I’m working on it.

This simple project is a stomp box. Basically, it’s a box you stomp on to keep beat. It’s got a speaker from an old radio inside, wired to a 1/4” mono socket.


The speaker works as a microphone, picking up low frequencies. I sat it on top of some rubber washers before screwing it down so there’s no rattle.


I recessed the jack, ‘cos I’m a bit fancy.


That’s a carpet tile on top so it’s more boomy. I’ve left the bottom uncovered (ooh er) so I can experiment with putting different stuff in there to change the sound, ie. rags, foam, paper.

Also, I might have wired it back to front.
