  • DIY 1/2" Mounting Rod

    I didn't want to spend $8-15 each on the standard ones so I came up with this:

    If you want to read more about it just go to DIY 1/2″ Mounting Rod on my website. They only cost about $1.50 to $2.00 each. They were made to fit into the standard REMO practice pad kit clamp or you can mount the rod in the REMO arm.




    So, for all of you diy'ers that have a REMO kit stand laying around, now you can use it with your other diy drum triggers. You can also use it with your Roland drums as well.

        This couldn't have been a more timely post of ingenuity/resourcefulness. I need to re-purpose a cymbal arm I was using to hold a tom back to its original purpose and was hoping to find a way not to buy another cymbal arm. This is IT!

          Great idea. I will definitely be able to use your info. I used .79 cent anchor bolts instead of the $10.00 L-rods, But I like your idea better.

              Personally I've picked up some threaded rod from my local auto parts store. You can get them at Home Depot too, but I just get a good deal on car stuff since I used to work there (and worked on all their cars!). But all you have to do is take a torch and heat up a section, hammer it around a 90 degree angle, then cut to length. I'm not sure its cheaper than the $0.79 but its another option.
