Footboard Bass

October 15th, 2014
music, footboard

It would be nice to be able to play some sort of bass while playing mandolin. Organ pedals are kind of like what I want, though they're kind of expensive. What if I make something myself?

The layout is Wicki-Hayden:

      Bb   C   D   E   F#   G#
    Eb   F   G   A   B   C#
This makes it easy to play in a given key; the root, fourth, and fifth are all right near each other.

I'm using the controller from a DTX 500 for generating the notes, but something that did octaveless bass would be better.
