Mojohound Music Company stompboxes are handcrafted from select red oak, maple, ash, birch and poplar timbers. We manufacture all of our products right here in Southwest Missouri and we make every effort to ensure sustainability when purchasing materials for our stompboxes.
The Mississippi Drum Machine (MDM-I) has been used by a broad range of musicians for many different applications; ranging from simple acoustic accompaniment for small bands and singer/songwriters playing bar/coffee shop gigs to being used as a versatile percussive instrument for professional musicians.
Using different types of shoes will produce different types of sounds. While a thick rubber sole, like that of a cross trainer or a flip-flop, will produce a more muted thump, a harder rubber sole, like that of a cowboy boot or dress shoe, will produce a more audible punch, and going barefoot will produce a different sound still. The MDM-I can also be struck with mallets or used effectively as a versatile hand-drum. If you toss in a couple of effects pedals or sound modules the possibilities are endless.
It should also be stated that Mojohound Music Company stompboxes employ an entirely different electronics system than similar products currently on the market. We do not use any piezo electronics in our stompboxes and as a result our stompboxes do not suffer from any unwanted hum or feedback, at any volume. Every Mojohound Music Company stompbox carries a lifetime warranty.
