Making a drum kit?

How would I go about making drum heads for cheap, and a hi hat and cymbals? I play in a metal band (lots of metallica, megadeth etc.) but even the simplest kit could help since our drummer currently does not have a kit.

MIDI Drum set using keyboard?

Im wondering if I could make some piezo drum triggers, run them through and Arduino or other device, and then send MIDI signals from the Arduino to a Casio keyboard I have.  The keyboard would play the drum sounds.  So basically the triggers send a signal to the arduino and the arduino sends a signal to the keyboard.  Is this possible?

I have a 55 gal metal drum that I want to burn in.  Does anyone know how to set this up?  I think I want to bury it a little so we don't have to stand up all the time.  Someone said to set on something in the ground for ventilation.  Everyone says something but I can't find anyone that just knows how.  Thanks for your help. I want to use the drum for outdoor fun.  Bon fire type of thing with an occasional marshmellow roasting.

If I'm making a garage junk band drum set (a-la Fat Albert Gang), what would make a good cymbol? Answered

I recall the plastic rulers from the 70's & 80's having a good clatter to them when dropped on a desk, but all the new ones are softer plastic now. I've also tried bonking stuff like pot lids and trays at local Goodwills, but none seem to sound right. Any el-cheap-o suggestions? Thanks.

Outdoor electronic log drums.

We would like to make some outdoor drums made from logs that when hit trigger a relay which turns on a light. It it is proving to be very tricky to get a reliable system. We have tried using microphones with a small circuit to detect when triggered, these have worked the best but we get many false triggers and other times not triggering at all, we have tried adding pre amps to these microphones to try to boost the signal.  We have also tried to use capacitive touch sensors on top of the logs but again, many false triggers. The set up is installed outdoors for over a month and can sometimes be made to work but then the temperature and humidity will change and this causes them to false trigger or to not trigger at all, we are currently toying with the idea of hall effect or reed sensors, many of set into each log with a neodymium magnet in the end of the drum stick. If anybody has any ideas of how we can make a reliable system for installation outdoors that works through all the temperature and humidity changes please let me know.

DIY electric drum set

Here's an easy way to make an electric drum set for about 150 dollars that sounds and works great. I am going to post instructions, but this should tell you enough. Get two rock band drum sets. Open the drums. They are easy to open. Just put your hand in the little gap about halfway through the drums and carefully lift up. In the center, there would be a circular area. Keep those clean. Buy nine of those tiny recorders that you press a button to play. They are about 4 dollars each. Record a tom 1 sound, a tom 2 sound, a tom 3 sound, a bass sound, a snare sound, a crash cymbal 1 sound, a crash cymbal 2 sound, a boom cymbal sound, and a hi-hat cymbal sound. Glue each drum sound inside the center of each drum. Glue the bass one underneath the bass pedal. Turn all the volumes on high. IT WORKS! All for pretty cheap.

How can I fix a Band Hero (YES, BAND HERO, NOT GUITAR HERO) Drum kit?

Well, I own a Band Hero Drum Kit, and the Red Drum stopped working, it doesn't respond now. I'd like to know how can I fix this? Oh, and by the way, let me recall that it's a BAND HERO DRUM KIT and it is NOT A GUITAR HERO:WT DRUM KIT! They ARE DIFFERENT!!! Because I checked the instructables manual concerning the WT Drum Kit and the images of the GH:WT drums and BH Drums ARE NOT THE SAME! I hope you can help me out :]. Thanks in advance. PS: Recalling again that is A BAND HERO DRUM KIT, NOT GH:WT.

Is it possible to make a bass drum kick pedal that runs on usb and would be compatible with midi? Answered

I've got a midi drum controller that I like using [and would rather not destroy for the project], but I would much rather use a kick pedal for bass than my fingers. I was wondering if there was a way to make a bass drum kick pedal that was compatible with midi live (for example usb or something), as opposed to having to convert the audio to midi and all that mess.
