lady penelope Jon Boden's right foot (43) RE: Jon Boden's right foot 07 Oct 08

Any instrument is only as good as the person playing it and percussion/rhthym instruments are no different.

I can imagine this 'stomp board' being useful when a basic rhthym is required but people have run out of limbs (as it were). But that doesn't mean it will suit every situation and the sound still needs to be balanced.

I have a theory that many people (sound engineers espcecially) simply cannot hear a bass drum beat shortly after hearing it start - maybe their brains automatically 'tune out' regular beats and file under 'background noise', I dunno - and to keep 'hearing' it, they keep turning up the volume to the point where you can't possibly ignore it. Mind you, other people just like it LOUD!
