  • Ben's DIY Drum Pads

    I wanted to build my own pads, and eventually decided on the "reflection plate" design instead of converted acoustics.

    I can't remember how much this cost all together, but probably somewhere around 10 dollars per pad.

    They trigger Great, store small, and really stand up to abuse.

    I have the How-To posted at Instructables...

    Check it out and let me know what you all think.

    Welcome to Vdrums Benjamin, I also noticed that you posted this over at edrumming.com as well. Not bad, how well can you do rolls on that playing surface? Do you have a picture of your triggers on your PVC rack? Good job, I look forward to seeing what you make in the future.

      Pretty good rolls.

      The first pad i built, using mousepads instead of the mat foam has the best stick response. rolls on it are about like a medium-tight snare.

      I'm using it as my snare because of this, but the other pads still roll pretty well and are great for toms, high-hat, and even ride.

      Thanks for the warm welcome

        Indeed, welcome to the forum!

        Your ingenously cheap solution has earned you an invitation to my (very) little contest:

        Still time to enter!
        Id rather be told the ugly truth than handed a pretty lie.
