Step 1: Get your stuff! quick!
-a drum module. this is the big buy. i got mine used for 150, and supposedly you can get specs to make one on-line but i'm an idiot when it comes to circuitry so i just bought mine. alesis makes a mdi i/o box that's 150 new, and perfect if you're gonna be smart and use your computer wiht superior drummer or whatever. if you need portable sounds i recommend the dm5 because it's cheap.
as many of these items as you want pads. aka 5 pads=5 piezos:
-some mouse pads.
-some piezo transducers from radio shack. #273-073. call ahead, alot of them don't stock many of them
-1/4" jacks, also from radioshack. i don't know the number for those, but they're easy to find and plentiful. GET MONO!
-an exacto knife that you're not particularly fond of
-a piece of wood. i got some really thin like, particle board stuff for literally 50 cents from the scrap section of home depot. it works great.
-POWER TOOLS! this is a new addition for this version over my old one, but it looks alot better in my opinion. i got my kit for like 100 bucks, and it's junk, but it works.
