  • Making a Stand for a Remo Pad Bass Drum

    I have already converted a Remo practice pad into a trigger. I would like to use it for a bass drum. What is the easiest design for a bass drum stand for the pad. The pad has a screw socket in the back, which I figure would be enough to hold the pad in place. thanks.

    Welcome to the forum.
    I just saw sometging that might be of interest on the Pearl forums yesterday. Check it out here:

    Not very pretty, but it might be a starting point.

      yeah, what Colquhoun posted would be pretty easy to build. Then just head over to the hardware store and find a bolt that would be the right size for the pad and screw it right in.
      Is this going on a rack? If so, there's actually a base drum "mount" that's meant to go with the Remo practice kit. I'm currently selling mine if you want it! (the whole kit that is)
      Stick twirling - because you obviously have mastered all other aspects of drumming already, right?

          A little expensive, but might be worth not having to build it out of wood...

          edit: found a Promark one that might work, at just over $40.

          and the funny thing is, it looks EXACTLY like the Pearl bass pad that goes for $70:

            It would be even easier to get a downward beater and make a simple holder for it.
            I would suggest a 6" remo pad and just get a wedge of wood with an L aluminum plate to secure the pedal onto. It also would be more stable than the other options. Don't forget to put heavy duty velcro (prong side) on the bottom of the wedge.
