  • an A-E conversion

    I just finsihed my basic conversion. I'll be adding more pieces, but this is the core set. The drums, one of the cymbals, and hi hat with hidden controller are documented in the DIY forum. Powered by a TD-20.

      Thanks! - Between you and Cheapthrill I have enough info to take a try at my e-cymbals. and now even the Hi HAt

      I have TD20 and am working on a mini a to e-drum conversion. I don't have any cymbals yet. Your Hi Hat work looks like what I need to save me from buying a VH12.

      I need to go back and read your edge switch stuff again. You mentioned some clear plastic, like from a Christmas card box cover.... I did not understand where you were using it.

      thank you for taking the time to post your work details - very helpful
      TD-20 (non expanded), acoustic look DIY a to e conversion - some cake pan/ some crossbar method. DIY cymbals, VH-12 :-)

        I used the plastic as the insulating layer between the cymbal and the other switch contact (the brass shim stock). It works well. My biggest concern is the longevity of the brass "membrane". Being relatively thin and soft, I think it will end up deforming and keeping the circuit closed before too long. Time will tell. It was handy material I just happened to have laying around. I'd like to try some stainless or spring steel since it should hold up quite well to the stick abuse. If/when this craps out, that's be the direction I'll go.

          Very nice stuff. I especially like that bass drum riser.
