  • Acoustic to Electronic Conversion

    Has anyone dealt with these guys before? Looks pretty decent, except no replies to email inqueries. =(

    i bought a set of these a couple years ago and they work fine. you can get these parts at most hardware stores and save money but it is nice having all the stuff wired up and ready to go. the only thing i didnt like was that the spot that the bars go over the rim pop through the drum heads a little. i used a dremel tool to remove some wood so it sat flat. all in all i say make your own if you have the time and a little know how.

      Mitch at ufo drums sells a similar setup. His do not hang on the bearing edge, but rather mount under one of the existing lug screws (the bracket is slotted, allowing fine-tuning of cone height). His cones look a little nicer, too. Mitch's website can vary, so if you don't find them on there, e-mail him and he will send you a complete list (some really good, and hard to find components).
