  • Single zone cymbal DIY

    I just finished my first DIY e-cymbal. I built a simple single zone ride with an old Sabian 16" crash and radioshack parts.

    Radioshack parts:


    Piezo is attached to the box with double sided tape:




    The box is attached to the cymbal with velcro (don't want to drill the cymbal):


    I used two hihat drum mutes, but a mouse pad should work fine:


    Not including the price of the cymbal, I spend no more than 10 dollars in this project. Works very nice as a ride and with the TD3, a harder hit will make a bell sound. Of course, its not as quite as my Yamaha crash, but attaching the drum mute with glue could make it more quiet. I hope this helps any other edrums newbie "do it yourselfers" like me. Questions and comments welcome.
