Porch Board (Floor) Bass

Designed to revive the lost art of self accompaniment, the PORCH BOARD (floor) BASS is an amplified, analog, rhythm instrument originally intended for solo guitar players.

As a player-controlled timekeeping tool, it is beneficial for students, song writers and seasoned musicians. Because it incorporates the natural technique of tapping your feet to the music, it allows the musician to control the bass rhythm without using artificial rhythm machines or midi equipment. Each tap of the player's foot produces a low-end, full-bodied, bassy beat that is more percussive than a bass guitar, yet sounds fuller and more resonant than most bass drums.

When accompanying a guitar, the PORCH BOARD (floor) BASS gives the impression that the bass "notes" are changing, allowing the solo performer to play with heartfelt intimacy and with a natural, bass beat that many desire. The perfect guitar accessory, the PORCH BOARD (floor) BASS can be mastered in a minimum amount of time.

Designed for use with a PA or quality amplifier (capable of reproducing low frequencies), the PORCH BOARD (floor) BASS uses no batteries and has no electronics or computerized parts. Instead, the bassy beat is produced by using a proximity sensor with the solid mahogany structure adding additional percussiveness.

The PORCH BOARD (floor) BASS allows the solo guitar player to add a natural low-end rhythm to any style of music, creating the cohesiveness and impact of a seasoned combo. Because it's player-controlled, the PORCH BOARD (floor) BASS is the perfect accompaniment instrument for performers who interact with their audiences, and is legitimately accepted in the concert venue.
