The Ortega ANNAlog analog percussion stomp boxes are great tools for guitarists, singers, songwriters and street performers wanting to add a percussive element to any performance. With its analog design, no battery or power supply is needed. Just plug it in and you are ready to go. Detailed inner construction minimizes surounding noise to maximize bass punch. Equipped with an input and output, its discrete pass through allows you to blend the percussive sound with your instrument signal to a single channel. Comfortable ergonomic design for foot tapping in a Solid Cherry wood housing with a non-slip bottom coating.
Fat, great-sounding bass drum tone. Back in the day, performers used to stomp on a suitcase on its side for this same purpose. This is smaller, lighter and way better-sounding.
Velocity sensitive for an expressive experience with a Seamless volume control to adjust percussion sound through (blend the percussion sound with the unaffected guitar signal together through the output to one channel) - 6.3mm (1/4 in.) input jack (connect your guitar or bass or any other instrument with a true discrete pass-through to output) - 6.3mm (1/4 in.) output jack (connect to amp or sound system)

Comments about Ortega Analog Stomp Box with Built-In Sound Optimized Piezo Technology:
Man... I don't even know where to start... So I'm a one man band I play out 2-3 times a week so I picked this up to replace my cajon/kick pedal set up (I also travel for work and thought I'd be able to use this on the road). I was SO excited when the FedEx dude dropped it off. So I ran it through my pedal board just before the Ditto (last pedal on the board) and I gotta say, this is definitely not worth the money. Outside of being pretty, its basically useless. You would sound much better just not using it at all.
1- You can barely hear anything even at max volume from the pedal
2- For some reason it clips at about 1/4 volume (which makes no sense if you can hardly hear anything)
3- Not very bassy (more like a knock on the front door)
4- Slides around (very slight, but just enough to make it hard to find the "sweet spot" mid-song)
In order for me to even hear anything, I have to turn the volume down on EVERYTHING which throws the sound off. Again, I am running it though my pedal board with a TC Electronic Fuzz pedal, a TC Helicon Vocal Harmony in front of it, and a Ditto behind it. Nothing too elaborate. So for this to work, its going to need IT'S OWN CHANNEL THROUGH A MIXER AT MAX VOLUME TO WORK. Otherwise you'll have your guitar or instrument at almost no volume, while the pedal is clipping at 1/4 volume, and your amp/PA channel is at max volume... Not worth the Benjamin, nor the time, nor the hassle.
