Nice! You need an Instructable on how to tune air drums.

I have discovered a very simple way to tune the air drums. You rap you air stick on the drum rim, then rap on the air skin. They should be the same note, but several octaves apart. If not the same, then just tighten or loosen the air skin till you hear the resonant tone. It will be in perfect tune, at that point then you will hear nothing, so you may have to detune to get the effect you want. Hope this helps.

I've been looking for something I can smash onstage. This will work great!
A bit too expensive.. All the materials were too pricey.

Have anything on the lighter side?

Thanks! This has really helped me finish off construction of my air bass, and while the instructable was not clear when going over attaching the neck to the body, I managed to work it out myself. Thanks for the help!

My advice? Don't make or buy an acoustic one; they're so quiet you can hardly hear them, unless you feel like spending $500+ on one. An electric actually sounds good plugged or unplugged; even better, most modern ones have wireless systems built into the body.

You sure thats a strong enough fix at the neck to body? I can see a tendancy to flex. How about adding a video so we can hear what it sounds like?
OMG HELP! I can't remember where i put my parts! I can't see 'em! HELP!

My intonation is off, Do you have instructions?
what you need to to, is turn your air guitar saddles forward or backwards depening on if its intoned too high or low.
My friends tell me my saddle is rusted, But I can't see. lol
Oh yeah air oil works for that the best lol.

Get tape and paint.
Tape areas you don't want to be painted.
Paint the areas you want painted.
If you want other areas painted a diff. color tape them off at first than when done painting the other areas take off the tape and retape the area you just painted when its dry, (air paint dries fast.)
Paint the other areas diff. colors.
Repeat if neccessary.
Airbrushing is highly recommended as it will compliment this project the best.
Do you recommend sanding first? I tried to paint first but the paint didn't take. I just made an awful mess.
Slayerfan666 (author)  Susan14 years ago
Yes I would recommend sanding.
i made one and put banana oil on it...
I tried sanding and spraying Nitro on it. I got more on my shoes than on the guitar. Silly me....lol
How about the multi-colored duct tape? I'm not sure how to lubricate the pots though. Hey thanks! I'm so excited I don't know where to start.
