    Here's what I did. I cut into 2 blocks. Peeled the backing with my fingers once I started it with an exact knife. Peals right off. I then glued together with 3m. Made a spindle using a large washer and bolt. Used double backed tape on the washer and attached the cone block. i used a scissor to shape the cone. Basically took the edges off placing the scissors at an angle. Used my drill press to do complete the job. So placed the bolt into the drill press. Used 40 grit sand paper against the cone as drill wad spinning. Took about 5 minutes. Hope this helps

      That's pretty much what I did, removed the sanding layers. Whether that makes a difference or not, I don't know, but for me, they did disintegrate after a short time, so bear that in mind.

        Thankx for heads up. For the amount of time I spend on the exit versus acoustic it will be awhile. Still much cheaper for now.

      Ok so i used double sided tape and taped one of my foam cylinders to a piezo with wiring and jack. I plugged it into my kick cable and it seems to work pretty well so far. Only time will tell when I actually install it into a drum. Like silentseraphtwo said, they might only be a short term solution and I may have to revert to cones in the future. Who knows?

        So far so good with these sanding block trigger cylinders. Very good triggering so far, consistent and reliable. Will let you all know how these hold up over time.

          Apologies about reviving an old thread. I'm curious as to how they held up years later. It would be interesting to know what the longevity of the material is.

          Thanks
