Cigar Box Stomp Box Wiring

No Comments

Every time I check how people find my site on the Internet I always check the most popular keywords.
And in most of cases the winner was this one: “wiring for cigar box guitar stomp box”.
Or something similar.
Funny, but looks like people are mostly interested in building the stomp boxes rather then cigar box guitars. 🙂
And after a small research I’ve learned the following thing: mixed terminology.
Most of these visitors were actually looking for the EFFECTS stomp boxes.
And what I have on my site it’s FOOT DRUM stomp boxes!

Nevertheless, some of those visitors are REALLY looking for the DIY foot drum stomp boxes.
I have 2 items of this type:

  1. Piezo Stomp Box – my first stomp box ever.
  2. P-Bass Stomp Box – the stomp box equipped with the Precision Bass pickups.

And while the first one doesn’t have too much in terms of wiring the P-Bass one does.
I didn’t event something special here.
As you can guess I’ve just found the wiring diagram for the p-Bass guitar on the Net.
For those of you who are not familiar with the electronic diagrams I’ve got very nice drawing at: buzzardsbass.com

Here you go:

P-Bass wiring diagram

The good thing about this drawing is that you just learn it carefully and solder the parts according to it.
You will need:

  • capacitor – 0.047mF
  • 2 potentiometers – 250Ko
  • 1/4″ standard audio jack
  • the wires to solder

That’s all that’s it.

As for the p-Bass pickups I’ve bought the pre-wired set on eBay for about 4$-5$.

Let me know if you have any questions about it.

And the best of luck!
