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.
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.
