Making a drum kit? Answered

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.

To be honest Google is awash with sites that show how to make drums.

As for the head, traditional heads are made from goat skin, but modern versions are plastic. You can buy a head fairly cheaply and make the rest. The success of using some kind of substitute may depnd on how careful you are in using it.
