This Instructable will show you how to modify any acoustic drum and make it an electronic drum with the option to reverse back using very simple items.
Step 1: Making the Mesh heads.
The first item needed is mesh.
Regular window mesh is too weak to handle continuous drumstick abuse... Pet proof mesh is the answer.
For about $ 17 a roll, it's enough to make heads for a 6 piece kit, maybe more.
One layer is more than enough to make a very decent head.
