This tutorial can be used for ANY acoustic- to- electronic drum conversion with minimum alteration needed.
It contains detailed images and instructions that should explain the process in a way that many words may not.
I am learning how to do this as I go, so if you have better ideas please share them!.
I have been working on building electronic sets for only a few months and sometimes I figure out better designs after the prototype that I've built is finished. That said, if I find a better way to tackle a project, I will post an update to save everybody else the part of having to find out the hard way like me. As any other Diy'er out there knows, the internet and sites like this are what we use to learn and sometimes teach each other, I give credit to the authors of sites that I used to learn and design this and other tutorials posted in YouTube under the user name Lucyferina.
Feel free to ask any questions about this mode or any ideas you might have, if I know the answer I will gladly answer and if not, at least will try to point you in the right direction.

One last thing..... If you need to see a bigger version of the pictures click on the "i" icon on the left top corner of the picture, this allows you to select a bigger version and read the text that I added to them.
Step 1: Create a bridge
This First step is to Create a bridge for the head piezo that should span from one side of the drum to the other. in order to maintain the drum integrity, the bridge is mounted to the drum utilizing the screws that hold the drum lugs and "L" brackets as shown in the accompanying image. In order to prevent double triggering from the rim piezo, rubber washers can be utilized between the "L" bracket and the lugs as well as the bridge itself.
