The PorchBoard Bass
The PorchBoard Bass is an amplified, analog low-end rhythm instrument that uses the natural technique of foot tapping to produce a player controlled bass beat with any style of music.
Our patented passive proximity sensor system
creates an analog, clean bass beat without the common low-end
amplification problems of noise, feedback or delay. The PorchBoard
Bass has sufficient output to drive most powered subwoofers
without the use of a preamp. No batteries or additional
power sources are required.
An array of sounds in you hands: This is a musical instrument you can learn intuitively from the first touch.
The PorchBoard Bass has been used by musicians to add analog, low-end, real time percussive bass self accompaniment since 1994. With a simple tap of the foot, the musician controls the style, tempo and volume, allowing audience interaction and a natural, player-controlled beat no matter what type of music.
Introducing the new
Building on the same proximity sensor technology developed for the
PorchBoard FloorBass, the PorchBoard SlapBass is designed
to put an array of sounds in the hands of the player rather than underfoot.
The PorchBoard SlapBass is a guitar strap instrument that offers both high
and low tones, allowing a terrific, percussive groove with simple finger
slaps. $339.99 + 15 for shipping.
