  • Have anyone made DIY bass drum??

    I searched this site for information ,
    I know a lot of people here have made DIY snare and toms , but how about bass drum??

    If I want to build a 12" bass drum , I need:

    (1)drumshell and lugs (leecustom)
    (2)piezo (other than roland,where can I order it ??)
    (3)the hareware (legs, mounts)
    (4)mesh head (roland)
    (5)cone (where can I find it??)
    (6)anything else?? pls give me some tips.

    Thanks!!

    Actually, I was going to do it - I have everything ready (except for shell) - dw style camco lugs, spurs, hoops, lugs, remo muffles,etc... I would let it all go pretty inexpensively - it is all just sitting there...

    The hoops are for a 22" drum but the hardware will fit any size drum....

      I just use a TriggerPerfect hoop mounted unit and a mesh head on a 22" kick, works fine for me. No need to go through the cone method on the kick.

      If you want internal/center triggering all you need is a crossmember and a foam/piezo trigger setup like the simple version on my site (here I go promoting again, sorry ).

        Hi drummercat. I think someone around here used a PD-120 and made some sort of mounting apparatus and attached it to the bottom bar of the rack.

          I asked leecustom for international order and
          have no luck.....
          But today I went to a local piano shop ,
          and found what I need~~~~
          a 16"x16: floor tom cost me only HKD$350 (USD45)~~~
          It made in china.....poor quality acoustic drum, but seems not important for me~~~
          I am going to cut it to 2 halves for my 2 bass drum~~~~

            Hi sepdrums,
            22" seems too big for my set up.....
            (because I want to place 2 of this inside the rack~~)
            thanks for your help anyway~~~

              Hi Btnkbndt~
              thanks for you information on your site!!
              (excellent setup !)
              seems I will use HARTS ADC for bass drum triggering~~~

                Thanks for your help~
                but PD-120 is too expensive for me.....
                I am going to make two 16" bass drum from a cheap acoustic floor tom~~~~
                let you know if success~

                    Drummaker.com have something similar.... http://www.drummaker.com/babykick.html


                    Pearl`s design seems better....my own opinion.
