I am looking for a Stomp Box available in the UK (preferably) and ‘In Stock’. Something I can plug into my Amp such as the Ellis Stomp Box.

Any suggestions on suppliers and other brands I can look at would be most appreciated!

back in my days playing with busking blues/skiffle bands a breadboard and pzm mic was the stomp box of choice.....

Thanks for that! Do you have any experiences of them? Especially the last one on your list.

Interesting! I have looked at some DIY Stomp Boxes but they tend to be bulky, but a breadboard would be quite robust and neat. Did you place the mike on top of the board?

seem to remember our guitarist notching a slot out of the bottom with a router (or chisel) and mounting the PZM in it...

looks like the sort of thing, Seem to remember blakeys on the boots were a good move too....

Thanks Kev! I had seen that Stomp Box, but it is too complicated for what I need. A simple mic plug into my Amp with a board over the top of it is ample! The bottom link that Singlereed post only costs £45. It might be cheap to get than the total cost of making one. The mic is £25 and I've seen a breadboard for £20.
