    Homemade Electronic Drum Kit

    I enjoywd looking over yourbuild and how you incorporatedothers builds but also made your own unique contributions. I am wondering about your choice of materials for the cymbals. I see a listing for "practice cymbals" on Amazon which comes with a crash, ride and hi-hat for just shy of $100. I dont know what material these are built with, and I believe they are practice cymbals for accustoc players (since e drums have no need for low/no noise alternatives), so I have to wonser of this pack of practice cymbals would work for an e kit?I am really impressed with the durability of the construction, but I imagine with a bit of ingenuity a better frame and joint system could be made for more portability without having to scrap the entire design.

In fact, I came up with a design concept for better interconnectivity customization with the potential of being able to just pull each pad apart from the others and keep them in a gig bag or a hard case. My current Roland v drum kit (the discontinued TD 7) s fairly easy to tear down, ravel with (I bought a good sized rubbermaid bin to keep it all in) md reassemble for performances (I am a long way off from this, but nice to know I can when I do get there). And it only involves tightening and loosening the "clamps" that the pads attach to.My actual interest is creating a new brain module, potentially using an Arduino or similar micro processor, and I have seen some builds for this, ut not geared towards the drum world but to the general midi electronic music world. I used to be a programmer and I have some interesting features in mind, so hopefully I can start working on this soon.
