You will need the following:
-wire (a relatively small gauge)
- 1 DPDT switchDPDT switch (radioshack part # 275-407)
-dremel rotary tool for cutting hole
Step 1: Disassemble the Drums
Step 2: Unplug the Board and Remove
Step 3: Prepare/Strip the Wires and Tin
>You must then carefully strip the wire to reveal the white coated "cymbal +" wire and the bare
copper "cymbal -" wire. Tin the bare wire and the stripped white wire on both both sides of the cut.
-Filp the board over and identify the solder points for the plug that the green drum plugs into. Solder a wire onto the "green drum +" (green colored wire) and the "green drum -" (black colored wire). strip and tin the other end of both of these wires in preparation for the DPDT switch.
Step 4: Cut and Drill Holes for the Switch
Step 5: Solder the Wires to the Switch
Step 6: Mount the Switch and Assemble Controller
Step 7: Enjoy!
-Sliding the switch to the right position now allows the orange cymbal to control the green drum. You may also hit the green drum as normal if you so desire.
