      yea those top pads are pd-6's and are being used as cymbals.

      (my 2 cy-8's disintegrated after awhile for reasons unknown.. i'm probably the lightest drummer out there.)

      my pyramids (crude cones.. lol) were made from sanding block foam, for the bass drum i'm thinking of going with something softer since i i'm trying to reduce the thud. although its actually very quiet as it is.

      but i live in an apartment so any thud is bad thud.

      and yea the jigsaw mats kick ass

        Good stuff

        I tried UFO cones and now i'm experimenting with sanding blocks he he, 10 pence each from the market, i got a smooth cut on em with a hacksaw ... gonna try a square tower with a smaller block at the top to minimize hot spot ... all good fun innit?

        i tried so much foam under my kit that my head was touching the ceiling ha ha so now i removed it and just say to them downstairs (family) they are drums and not as loud as acoustic ones so tough titties he he

          my pyramids seem to do a pretty good job on my toms. the snare canbe iffy at times.. after peeling the sand off it of it, i used an exacto knife to cut the shape. (being a cook sure helps make nice cuts when you use knives all day )

          i'm thinking of trying that UFO idea for the kicks. gonna stick with soft stuff tho.. hopefully it works out without being too weak.

            Run down to your local GM dealer and rip some of the protective foam pads off the doors of the pickups. Ok, you might be better off asking the PDI or detail department if its ok first, just so you don't get chucked in jail... but they are for transport protection only and are usually discarded when the truck is PDI'd.

            The foam doesn't shape very well, but I use it on all my DIY toms and it might work well for your kicks.
            Nice job and thanks for sharing! I love seeing what other folks come up with.
