Finger clave

Finger Clave

The first model of finger clave was like a balloon making that noise: boom boom chaka… As for the second model, it was kind of a surfboard sounding like boom boom chaka…

One mic, three different sounds: thousands potential rhythms!

Stompbox

Stompbox

The stompbox is a foot percussion that is most enjoyable for musicians like John Butler, Jeff Lang or Tommy Emmanuel.

It’s all made of solid wood (firs wood and American walnut-tree wood), the instrument got 1 or 2 piezo sensors (heal and toeing) to get a better reading of the frequencies. The signal can get through a pre-amp (most amps are fitted with a pre-amp) or in a compressor… or anyway in all the effects you wish!
