  • v-drum shells...

    hey guys,

    I've stumbled upon an interesting idea. I found a site that sells the remo acousticon shells for cheap as hell. After I saw this it triggered an old idea that I had of making v-drum pads. If you already have a kit but want your own color options, just buy the shells and finish them any color you want. And yes this would work very well because the shells are the same thing. Well I hope this helps somebody out. http://www.leecustom.com/shells.htm

    later,

    Thank's HEAPS for the link, I've got the roland 12 inch mesh head and the cones and triggers siting at home, I've been looking around secondhand for an old cheap 12" snare to build my own PD-120.
    I'll have to try one of these shells out (3.5" X 12" = $31.40)

    NOTE: I COULD ONLY GET THE ABOVE LINK TO WORK UNDER INTERNET EXPLORER. In case anyone else gets a black screen when clicking on the link.

        yea i saw the minimum order stuff... it would aslo be good to get a small bass drum and put a Ddrum trigger or something of the sort on it. Of course these are only suggestions.

          Nice idea (I'd like to make a10" snare myself!), but add in about $18 for hardware, plus drilling, plus a hoop, and it gets pretty pricey. Cheaper to buy a small snare (used?) and convert it.

            I just can't find ANYWHERE to buy a 12" snare at a reasonable price by itself second hand where I am.
            I might go with an old 12" tom, cut it down and re-do the hardware??

            Anyone know where I can find a cheap 12" drum thats not too deep - even if it's off a Junior set (it doesn't need to make any noise

              well drmoze, yea it does get pricey but i priced a full 6 piece kit(with 18in bass) and it's $311 with everything before the drum lugs. Yes, it's a big jump from the prices for the shells but it's cheaper than one 10in roland v-drum pad. So basically...depending on what you are wanting to do it might not be a good idea. Do the math and you'll know if it's right for you.

                I actually am going to build my own v-drum setup. I bought an 8x10 tom off ebay for $40, then got another for $20. That gives me a kick, snare, and 2 floor toms by cutting both shells in half. I have figured out how to do stereo triggering for the rim. I have already built a 10" pad out of a small tom. You can get the "bravo" lugs from leecustom.com and they match the v-drums lugs exactly. I can give more details if anyone wants to do this.

                    Anx,

                    I've done the same thing with making my own PD-120

                    I found a new polished steel 12" x 5.5" snare from a company called "Peace" drums, whacked a roland 12" mesh head on and all the hardware underneath.

                    The snare cost me $110 AUS which is $55 US - no cutting down, no extra lugs, just whacked the cone and piezo on a bracket for the hardware underneath (aka Btnkbndt's instructions).

                    PS: Did i ever tell u i like whacking things

                      If you whack something, don't you normally whack it off rather than on??
