  • DIY EDRUM LINKS... Here's the place to share your links.

    As suggested by Joe_K... bout time we centralize our DIY links. This is the place to post those links to all things DIY E-drum related. Parts and Places.


    A link to the original thread for the Dual Zone Drop in Pan Conversion: http://www.vdrums.com/forum/showthread.php?t=56650

    And just so we have this in a good place.... The attached image is the...Correct Wiring Diagram for Splitting the Aux. input of the TD-12/20.
    The splitter for those who won't or can't build their own:

    Update: Trigger Foam for DIY: Page 3435: 3/8" thickness Is:86375K143 1/2": 86375K144 http://www.mcmaster.com/
    For making just a few cones .... just buying the 1/2" sheet will be ample to make more than needed. 3 layers makes it 1 1/2" high. For DIY projects that height would be fine ...... That is a little taller than a Roland cone. 2 layers of 1/2" and one layer of 3/8" is a height match for Roland cones.

    Does anyone know of a good source for rim silencers? In the link in the first couple of posts is non-existent.... or the part number does not exist any more.

    Open Source Vibration/Impact Isolating Kit Platform to keep your neighbors silent too!
    DIY detailed plans with color photo builder's guide and materials list. Designed by a drummer who does a great impression of an Architectural Engineer on weekdays. The simple design can be built for under 100 bucks and is 100% effective even in extremely sound sensitive situations. Easy to construct and vastly more effective than the popular "tennis ball" design. Proven track record and many happy users. And the designer (me) is usually available to answer questions.

    I totally posted this in the wrong spot yesterday. The prices are very good so I had to share.

    If you're looking for a reasonably priced source for foam, for fabricating reflection plates, sound dampening, etc., check out this site. I'm not certain if they have product comparable to the Poron commonly used to make Roland style cones or not. I'd be interested in hearing from some of you that have a technical knowedge of foam, as to which products on this site would be good DIY drum candidates especially as a Poron alternative. http://www.foambymail.com/

    Hello! Might I suggest that folks add a part number in addition to links. Digikey, Mouser, ebay, cui and allelectronics have all made back end changes.

    Im shopping parts to build my first kit and would have to say about 60-75% of all the links in this thread are broken. Granted most are from years ago but the posts with part numbers from the same time can still be looked up on the site selling it.

    Here is a self-stick vinyl acoustic damping material I've been using for my DIY E-cymbal conversions: http://www.parts-express.com/pe/show...number=268-030 . It has proven to be very effective in killing resonance when used on a regular cymbal, either used above or below. I use it on top, cut into a wedge shape a' la the Hart and Pintech triggers, applied in the strike zone only. It is less absorptive of stick energy (stiffer) than the thicker Hart pads, is about 1/3 the thickness, and I prefer the way it feels: somewhat less "soggy", if you will. It reduces the cymbal sound on the crash, splash, and hat triggers I've built to about the same level of "clunk" as a Smartrigger or Surge. It is cheap and effective, and has held up well to stick wear after 20 hours or so.

    Might be worth a look, for E-cymbal builders. Hope that helps. Your mileage may vary...

    Yes - many of the links go nowhere now.

    I realize it may be a hassle or even impossible to provide new links, as some of these places may have moved or even closed down.

    But since this is a 'Sticky' with increased traffic all the time, might I suggest that those who have provided links take a moment & edit their posts, if still able to do so - that is, by removing them or otherwise adding a note right below the link such as: "Link no longer active" or something.

    If no longer possible, then thanks just the same.

    Jim

    HERE
    My alternative rim silencer(my new favorite) is Clear Vinyl Tubing 3/16" ID by 5/16" OD. Available at Home Depot for 3 dollars and change for a 20' roll... enough to do a full 6 piece kit...

    Cool. Thanks. I would not have guessed it at "soft". Seems to be very substantial. Can't imagine the "Foam bricks" I would have bought without that info.

    Thanks, Jerry. I appreciate the feedback. I'll refer back to the first post for the part numbers...not sure how I overlooked it. Just getting started on my first A2E conversion. There's a ton a great info in this forum - I'm so appreciative of everyone that took the time to document and share their experiences and tips.
