Musical arc, modified berimbau, or: single string guitar, or string drum! Single string instrument to pluck, strum or hit (see the different videos), with or without piezo mic. All the guitar strings can be played for each chord in every pitches.
See the 3 videos below… In the second one, the playing is made with a slide… In the 3rd one, it’s a “fingerstyle” playing (string drum!)
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!
Following directly my musical bows, here’s the contrestomp: the combination of the stompbox and an electro acoustic washtub bass… The contrestomp is fitted with 3 passive piezo mics (string, neck and heel of the neck), a 6.5 jack and a broom handle. Stomp and tailpiece made of walnut wood, heel made of firs, nylon string 3 mm. It can be played with a drumstick or in pidz…
