What are those reggae stompboxes and what do they do

Post by DubFlix » Sun Aug 28, 2016 3:42 pm

Hi everyone,

I am into producing dub since a few years now and I am still wondering what those fancy looking stomp boxes are that a lot of dub oriented soundsystems use in their live performances.

They are usually in green yellow and red and have a few push buttons and potmeters on it.

They are mostly operated by hands not by feet, I think they generate some dub siren sounds or bleeps but I could be mistaking.

Does anyone know these devices, what they do and if they are useful where to get them?

Blessings, 1 love!

These are known as Dub Sirens. :D

Have a look at this section of the board:

Thanks a lot, I was aware about dub sirens, I guess I just didn't realize most of them are D.I.Y. made so they all look slightly different...

I might just buy a dub siren (or build one) of my own in the nearby future...
