I wanted to put a kick pedal pad up top to use with the drum stick. So I cut up an old IBM number pad off a keyboard, wired it to a mono 1/8" plug, and now I have a pretty indestructible "extra pad" to use along side the kick pedal. And I made it with stuff I had laying around!
Step 1: Materials... Cut off the number pad from a keyboard.
You will need an unwanted old wired computer keyboard... a nice durable older one.

A mono or stereo "Y" headphone jack splitter. $4 www.radioshack.com/product/index.jsp
Hot glue gun.
Wire clothes hanger.
Cut the number pad off with a jigsaw or a dremmel.
