  • DIY bassdrum

    I was fed up with all the complaints about my KD-7 banging on the floor so I've decided to build my own KD-120....`
    Here are some pictures. There are some of my converted snare too. http://drumstokje.bleuh.net/bassachterkant.jpg http://drumstokje.bleuh.net/basslinks.jpg http://drumstokje.bleuh.net/bassvoorkant.jpg http://drumstokje.bleuh.net/bassensnare.jpg http://drumstokje.bleuh.net/snareopen.jpg http://drumstokje.bleuh.net/snareintern.jpg

      I prefer use a acoustic bass drum(18" or 20") with a mesh head and a trigger~~~

        Questions:
        What diameter shell?
        What shell material? PVC? (and who will sell
        that short length?)
        Where do you get the rim, lugs and bolts?
        How good does the piezo work with the
        black plastic shell left on?
        Is the foam just rolled up, taped and glued
        on top of the piezo?

        I converted a wood snare drum to electronic
        by gluing in a 1"x2" crossmember and inserting a "shack" piezo in a 2" slice of a "Funoodle".
        I'm a drummer. I don't play the timpani! Hire a percussionist!!!

          Great work man.
          I already emailed you with some questions in dutch (like: aren't these pads better than any Roland product )

            It's a 13" old Sonor tom which I sawed (is that the right word?) in two. The hardware comes from the tom. I spraypainted it black.
            The piezo works very good. I get some double triggering sometimes but a liitle adjustment on the module fixed it almost completely.
            The foam is indeed rolled up, some tape to hold it together and I didn't glue it, I used doublesided tape. Because I want to experiment with the other piezo type as well.

            What the **** is a Funoodle?????

            Putt, I returned your email!
