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.
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.
