Talking acoustic stompbox ideas

I have a bunch of spare parts and stuff lying around, and wanted to make a acoustic stomp box, for when I don't have drums. I know a cigar box, piezo and output jack are all I'd need, but why stop there, what else could I piezo up for some foot tapping fun?

Well, you could make a cigar box guitar. Those are pretty awesome. Other than that, use your imagination, it's really an un-explored territory.

I don't mean I have excess cigar boxes, though I do. I am more wanting to make a small electric/eclectic food percussion system

1. take shoes,
2. route a chamber, put in piezo, put in an output jack,
3a. run it to an external box that controls volume/eq/whatever
3b. (optional) if wanted to go even better, add a piezo into that box as well, so you can use it as a stompbox as well, and a toggle switch to change between the 2 inputs

now you have stomp shoes!
