    Nobody has answered, I try.

    Start from a DIY snare with mesh head. Then you'll need to make two switches on your hoop, I really think the best way is to use this hoop : http://www.bigbangdist.com/shoop.htm
    It has a flat part that should be able to hold your switches.

    You should be able to find the wiring here, it should be the same as the 3 zone yamaha cymbal design : piezo for head trigger wired between tip and sleeve, rimshot switch wired directly between ring and sleeve and cross stick switch wired trough a 10K resistor between ring and sleeve.

    You can try to use foam cone for the head trigger, but you may have troubles. The Yamaha design is different than the Roland one. If needed you should simply use a remo ring control, but it's noisy. Other solutions should be found here.

    Hope it helps to start you project, let us know how it goes.

      I made a 2-zone, Yamaha compatible drum pad. I did try with a 10k resistor, but I was never able to get reliable triggering. You may be luckier than me!

      Trigger with 4 columns.so no hot spot here:

      Switch for second zone here:

        I am thinking of getting a rubber TP120SD pad and adapting it for a mesh 12" shell. That way the whole rim switch issue goes away since I will re-use those two switch zones. Looks like they can be had for ~$100 on eBay.
