    I'm working on a 'DDZT' (Drop-in Dual Zone Trigger) as well. Got a pan with straight sides and didn't fancy 'brutalizing' it to fit around the lug-bolts. This is what I did;

    Hope this is of some use to someone else.

    I am considering an A2E project but would like to be able to reverse the drum back to acoustic.

    Is the cake pan going to damage the bearing edge?

    My guess is, if the pan sits on the down slope of the bearing edge, it should be ok. If it sits right on the tip of the bearing edge, that will be painful.

    Thanks in advance!
    As long as you put a good barrier between the bearing edge and the pan, there will be no damage. In this thread they use electrical tape and/or weatherstripping, although I prefer vinyl myself.

    Absolutely ! that is the ultimate drop in - no damage to the donor drum

    but you know how it is with us...wegottatinker I really love this cakepan build method - thanks ChromeBoy and JmanWord

    I just can't leave well enough alone -so here it is- the video of the completed, no bolts or wires out the bottom, jack through the side, double face tape mounted, dual trigger with pos'n sensing, cake pan drop in mod.

    I thought of a variance for a "QUICK and CLEAN" A to E Reversible DIY DIP (drop-in pan) MONO pad, which combines Mikejl46's design: http://www.edrums.info/mc.htm
    but putting the portable pad into a 9" pan, in a 10" drum, with mesh head and standard drum hoop.
    You would only need to make one small hole on the side of the pan so the 1/8" jack plug can fit through. I would also recommend a rubber grommet to protect
    the cable from rubbing against the cut hole. And also, a cable hold down clamp, so
    the cable won't be stressed if pulled accidentally.

    Rotate the pad so that it's cable junction is offset slightly from the pan hole, so
    that the pad's cable can run through the cable hold down clamp, which is bolted to
    the pan with a small bolt going from the outside of the pan to inside.
    Next, run the cable through the grommet and put the pan on the drum. The cord
    can dangle below the pan(it can stretch to around 30"), so no separate jack needs to be cut into the drum shell.

    If I get time to try this, I'll post some pics. So, anyone who can,
    please test it out, and report back.

    What appeals to me, is the simplicity and the quick A to E reversibility, while
    not requiring any drilling or modification to the drum shell (other than some
    bearing edge protection from the pan).

    Of course, this same concept could also be applied to a Dual Piezo, raising the portable pad with (Racer52's design) memory foam to clear the center piezo.
    The portable pad has some built-in shock isolation, which could only help.
    The only involved part would be combining the center piezo wiring with the pad's
    1.8" plug, but shouldn't be difficult.

    Today I went shopping and found a cheap cake pan, it's 9'' x 1''. After drilling out the cake cutter I placed it in a 10'' drum. It fits like a glove, it could only shift a little.
    A piezo and jack will be installed when I have the time for it.

    I do have a few questions about this whole cake pan thing.
    The head sits on the rim of the cake pan, the pan's rim is roughly 8 mm. Is this okay? (I also made a picture of this.)
    Why do you use tape to protect the edge of the tom? Is this to have a chance of turning the e-drum back to an a-drum?

    I go the cake pan at Blokker for 3 euro. This info is only useful for Dutch users.


    Here are some pictures of my cake pan drum.

    Hmm, interesting. I would imagine that the 360 degree rim triggering effect would be ever so slightly distorted when introducing a rectangular platform mounted like that, but in a practical sense it is probably not very noticeable at all if any. Certainly much easier than drilling holes, that's for sure.

    Kudos to you, Hellfire, Jman, chromeboy, and all others, for the SIMPLEST
    dual zone A to E pad conversion yet!

    thank you all for the kind comments. I really like the clean simple, easy to understand cake pan concept, so I thought I would offer my build to the list of supporters. Many thanks to JmanWord and Chromeboy for this thread and to the earlier work of Hellfire on the similar concept.

    My next version will combine all of thier ideas and I'll build a cake pan drop in reflection plate e conversion.

    Daniel - my mini kit has clear vinyl on the toms and rubber U-channel on the rim of my 12" snare. I'll eventually go to all rubber on the rims when I find a souce for the type of rubber my friend gave me. All of these are built using the cross brace technique, with rim trigger on the shell of the drum.

    the 3 part video is actually the first of the cake pan drums I have built. This drum has no protection on the rim yet and triggers the rim too loud for my taste when connected to my snare input (TD-20) with no setting changes. I like the play and feel of the rubber U channel on the snare but prefer the look of the clear tube that is on my toms.

    I'll post more on rim dressings after I play around with the cake pan drum a bit

    First I want to finnish the 'No Bolt' cake pan drop in. I posted a video on this just last night as I was dry fitting the parts in the cake pan. The vid shows some memory foam and 3M HighBond tape as the 'mount' - It just clears the top of the cake pan with a couple of mm adjustment to spare
    see it here:
