My Roland PD-105 lost its sensitivity so I wanna try and make my own DIY foam cone.
I've searched this forum a lot for different ways to make it (methods, materials, dimensions.. etc.)
I know people have great success with poron or the foam from sanding blocks. Has anyone had any success with different materials as well?
I'm curious if you think any of the following foam types would work or if they're even worth trying:
dish washing sponge
magic sponge eraser
stress relief ball
If I choose to go with sanding blocks- is there any purpose behind stacking them up in layers other than reaching the required height? and can I use any adhesive other than the spray one to glue the layers together?
Also, what type of double-sided tape is recommended for the base? I'm afraid the thickness of foam tape might interfere with the cone somehow by adding to the height of it or creating too much space between the cone and the piezo.
And lastly, considering the fact that i'm using the pad with a td-9, is it really crucial for the foam to be in a cone shape? The td-9 does not support positional sensing.
Thanks in advance!
