Introduction: Drum Desk
In my first instructable I've complained how to make this studio desktop. Now I've got a little feature. Hope you will enjoy it.

Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: Get Your Stuff
You will need:
1 piezo element
1 mono jack socket (female)
Hot glue gun
Step 2: Assembling the Piezo Element
Step 3: Mount the Piezo Element to the Jack Socket
Step 4: Test You Piezo Element
Open a recording program(in my case GarageBand). And test on which spot the piezo element sounds good.
Step 5: Mounting to Your Desk
1- Mark the spot.
2- heat up your hot glue gun.
3- glue your piezo element to the desktop.
4- test one more time.
Step 6: Recording
To recording your desk drum you need a amplifier which can amplifi a microphone signal. Or you can use a PA mixer with build in amplifier. For a better sound; turn your "low" up and the "high" down and the "mid" on 0. I had to turn my gain al the way up, but I'm not sure if that has to be by every mixer/amplifier.
Hope you enjoyed, see you next time.
