    When last I checked, the Roland basket was about $35...

    I shudder to think of how much a Roland part would be... remember to add 1000% when buying here in Australia..

    I still think I would be better to import one myself (a tin that is)

    I did find a perfect item on ebay though... problem is they want US$68 to ship a US$11 item to Aus.... robbery I tells ya!

    Another option with the 12" is to buy a Roland basket. They do sell them in the part dept - but obviously not the same price as a cake tin! I tried lookng into Willow, but they don't have a website, and I haven't been able to find a contact number.

    Yeah Al I have been in contact with a supplier here in Brisbane, Bakeryfix @ Beenleigh. They can supply Al. tins up to 250mm diameter only, above that they go to tin units. I feel there will be nowhere near enough lip to have the head sit onto it properly.
    I have also contacted a few other places, but they are all in the same boat.... and would have to bring them in from overseas as well.
    I looked at the Willow units you mentioned, but I have a 12" snare and not a 10"... so no good for me!
    I wouldn't mind making a 14" one as well, to convert my Sonor 2000 series snare I use on my "A" kit.

    Oh, and BTW....excellent work on the new mag... I will be reading more tonight when I get some time. If you need any parts machined just let me know and I will make 2 of everything I am currently doing!

    Hey Rob, I have also been looking, but no luck yet. I suspect the specialty catering stores would have them.
    Failing that, we may have to import a bunch of them from the US.
    Another discovery which may interest baking pan DIYers. I took out my foam muffling ring and replaced it with a black (must be black!) felt disk and it does the same job of keeping down the sound - just as effective and totally invisible (and much easier to cut).

    I stumbled across this yesterday while browsing... just the thing to correct my poor rim response on my 12" snare!

    Now, here lies the problem.... there is NO ONE in Australia who can provide cake tins in aluminium above 10" (250mm). They move to tin above those diameters.

    I have been searching high and low... there is no one. I want an 11" x 2" pan... is someone able to ship one over to me if I pay for all costs? If anyone can help please get in contact with me and we'll go from there.

    Thanks, Rob.

    I finally have the pieces (FYI: shipping from Canada takes forever :P) I can tell you that the Fat Daddio's don't fit into Yamaha drums without modification. I will post pics as I progress through the project.

    The short answer is no, otherwise this detailed thread with pics wouldn't be here Although somewhat unique, there might be a problem with patent infringement for someone attempting to sell this.

I also need to check out my Legeros and see if there is room for the cake pan because they are mounted with a support thru the side. Possibly a portion of the pan could be cut away for clearance? It's obviously not an issue with the snare, though it is a very shallow snare, but may be with the toms. Anyway, great project, thanks for inventing the wheel and sharing your experience. I hope to make this conversion or sell the Legeros and buy another type of small kit for the conversion. I have a bad back from 4 surgeries so I bought the Legero's for their portability over my Premier 5 piece kit. Thanks again, Spiney-Dave
    Heads are a matter of particular taste and budget. I use Harts and I am trying a DIY mesh project at the moment. Alot of folks swear by Rolands and other by Billy Blast or DrumTech. Most agree that Pearl mesh heads are junk. Percussion Plus (made by Remo, I think) are a step up from Pearls but are still very thin in my opinion. Never had one rip like the Pearls though. Harts are almost bullet proof IMHO, though they are pricey. Hope this helps.

    new here, what type of heads are you using for this conversion?

    His wife must have him on a long Honeydo list or something.... haven't seen much of that lad lately

Using a vinyl disk in the bottom of the pan did not affect the PS, just calm the overtone, and it does tone down the rim response some.... but it is just a matter of adjusting rimshot adjust and rim gain settings if you add pan dampening.
