  • first post of my DIY kit

    Hello all, I have just got to what I am calling "phase one" of my DIY edrum project (all single zones except for dual zone snare). I have gotten so much valuable info on here that I wanted to post some pics of where I am at.

    My setup is a pacific chameleon kit that I used the crossbar method to mount the piezos, the difference being that instead of L brackets and u channel, I used something I found in Home Depot next to the junction boxes. It was a great find as they are adjustable in length for the different drums. I used pintech practice cymbals that have "pringled". For the Hi Hat, I used the slide potentiometer in a project box method. All the triggers run into a Td 10 which outputs MIDI to a Firewire 410 that connects to my laptop running ez drummer which goes back out of the 8 outputs of the firewire 410 and into the mixer.

    Plans for "phase two" are multizone cymbals and drums and a 2 cymbal hi hat system and hopefully an upgrade to superior drummer 2. Thanks for all the info and I hope this can help someone else.

    take a look at my pics and let me know what you think.

    I think you have done an excellent job. In my eyes, it is really beautiful.
    Ask not whether something is useful -- ask what it is useful for.

    Roland TD-12, Iron Cobra hihat stand and bass-drum pedal from TAMA. My accoustic kit is a Yamaha Power-V Birch with Paiste Alpha-series splashes, crashes, and hihat. My ride is a Zildjan Ping Ride, 20" I think.

    Check out my TD-12 on Youtube. My page is here http://www.youtube.com/HerlPearl.

      Looks good thekingofboggle. Wow, I didn't realize how much of a problem that pintech practice cymbals have with that "pringled" effect. I use converted pintech practice cymbals, but mine are from years ago. It looks I they are made thinner these days. I bet they are doing that to cut down on people converting them to eCymbals. Just a hunch. I look forward to phase two.

        Nice job! I'm happy with my TD-9KX, but those looks of an acoustic...

        How do the converted Pintech cymbals compare to Roland's?
