    I watched Racer52's videos and I like his design a lot. I'm considering using the light switch covers as my cone platform. However, in the scenario pictured below, do I need to worry about the bottom nut (the one supporting the actual cone platform) slowly making it's way back down the bolt over time or will the top nut pressing down on the platform and bottom nut keep the bottom nut from slipping? Make sense? It seems like the platform sitting on two nuts would allow the nuts the jiggle their way down the bolts over time.

    Again, sorry if this doesn't make sense.

    Tis indeed what I went for. I didn't see anyone else selling them on ebay. They seem like a nice package and I'm excited to have proper sized piezo transducers.

    These responded REALLY well, they are a lot more dense than the auralex you hang on the wall to deaden your space. The problem was that I didn't have enough of it (kind of a bummer since it was cheap/free in my case since I had it lying around).

    So then I tried those 3m sanding blocks (removing the sandpaper) I found people were using via google. The issue is with them being SO dense the response has gone down significantly and they don't trigger nearly as well. It was cheap to try it though ($6) so all it fine.

    I think at this point I just want something that is going to trigger nice with the mesh heads I have so I'm gonna spring for a pack of pre made ones off ebay.
    Get some conetriggers from Quartz...you wont be disappointed.

    That's what I thought too... If it's not a pcy-80/60/65, it's probably an old Alesis-pad, back from when Hart was doing the pads for Alesis...

    I wanted to ask the same question, but then I realized it`s probably a Yamaha pcy65. Looks even more weird on this pic

    Thus custom one works better than the forum's.......most of the time.

    I finished the floor tom tonight, which I actually have a mesh head for. Same design, but since a mesh head gives more than a plastic one I actually get better sensitivity with it and didn't have to raise my input gain quite as much (still did, but it wasn't near what the 8" is up to with a plastic head).

    So I'm pretty optimistic that once I get the other 2 mesh heads this thing will rock. Black mesh looks nicer over the whole assembly as well.

    I know it doesn't help you now, but we're actually working on a comprehensive rim silencer article for the August digitalDrummer...

    You really have to try this search engine sometime (a really more polite way to put it than UTFSE) .... Plus look through the sticky in the DIY forum on DIY links ... parts.
