It's not an iPad... is it a Wii Fit?

Keep trying! It really shouldn't be hard to figure out.

Ummmmm,

Taking a wild guess:

Is it a guitar effect box that controls bass, mids, treble, and gain along with buffer and eq footswitches?

Bingo!

But more specifically: the box it outfitted with a vintage Ibanez 2622/AR500 pre-amp/EQ board. In addition, it has the Waldo buffer. This device allows me to add the pre-amp/EQ +/or buffer to any guitar, which is great considering my poor man's Cowboy doesn't have the pre-amp/EQ built-in like my AR500. To me, the Ibanez pre-amp/EQ was a key part of Weir's sound. I used it at last practice with the setting you see: lows & highs cut. I really liked it.

The box has clips so it can fit in the waist of my pants, or, the clips can be removed so it can be used as a stomp box. It has a 9-volt battery, or, it can be powered via 9v DC power. It's also true-bypass.

I designed it and it was built by Gary Brawer.

Now if we could only make one of those gizmos to work as a remote control so we could improve Bob's mix in the mains at Further shows.......
