Why are like 90% of the instructables on this group drum instructables? Does nobody play any other instrument?

Question by VAustin89 | last reply
I have an electronic drum kit and I need a removable drum stick bag.I need one that will hold at least 6 to 8 pairs.I have bought bags before but,I have to take apart the drum kit to get it off to use on my acoustic kit.They have some with velcro but,they are usually to big and floppy and then I need to dig to find sticks in bag. I need something that will let me see the sticks and that are easy to grab and won't all fall out when I grab one.
I want to make my bass drum light up every time it is hit. How would I do this? Thanks.

I have a set of RBWT drums and a set of Wii drums... can I use these pads with a regular Electronic Drum Module? .. I know I would have to solder jacks onto the wires that would be compatable with the receptacle in the Drum Module... but do they have the right pulse to signal the module?
Question by Da_Soulmann | last reply
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.

I have a gorgeous hollow base of an old bongo and a very hairy piece of skin that is supposed to fit it. I'm not sure how to put them together and what other parts I need to make a functional drum, not to mention shaving the skin. Any help would be appreciated.
My boyfriend is wanting to put blue LEDS into his drums and under his cymbals. For right now I think he just wants them on steady. But eventually I'm thinking he'll want the ones inside his drums to come on when he hits the drum, so a way to trigger those to do that would also be good. Right now I was looking at the single light LEDs that they actually have to put on your car, these of course run off your car battery, so would also need a way to convert them to run on regular AC from house outlet. Any advice on this would be great. Any ideas and tips would be welcome. I'm a power novice so any detailed information ie(brands, stores, etc) would be welcome also. I'm so glad I found this forum. If anyone is interested you can find my guys band on MySpace, their name is Desidero. Thanks for any help in advance.

Might seem like a silly question but I just got my ps2 back and world tour. Tried to set up the drums, I could see where the orange symbol went and the foot pedal but for the life of me cannot find a place to plug in the yellow symbol. Could some one please get back to me so I can rock on. Thanx...

Question by 14kennisb | last reply
My Wii Guitar Hero World Tour cymbal broke. It is not wiring, it is where the rubber part meets the plastic that mounts it to the pole. I tried super glue (bad idea), but it will not hold up to the shock. The cymbal is still hanging there and sort of works, but it keeps me from getting any multipliers because it bounces around too much. I have played drums my whole life and know how to hold the sticks properly, so I am not overly beating on these things. I just got them this xmas. Played on them quite a bit but not enough for this to break so easily. Suggestions?
Even if it will cost me between 1 and 5 dollars I really need this music. so please help me

Okay, I bought a used pdp double bass pedal single chain. It is very stiff and I play better if it is smoother and/or faster. Any ideas for how I can lubricate it?
Question by doggypoo | last reply
I'm just starting out playing so i don't need a pro series or anything. and I only think that i need electric, because my parents are all for my being able to play quietly if not silent. (kind ironic don't you think?) but if there is another way to make acoustic set be quiet then tell me please.thanks.
Question by frannyloo | last reply
Hey!I got a Roland V-Drum kit last year and there's an aux input for mp3 players. I use it with my iPod touch to play along with songs.My problem is, I rest my iPod on the control module and not only does this then block half the controls, but it sometimes falls off with furious drumming.So I though to myself, I wonder if I can buy a rail mount so I can have a cradel attatched to the stand. I knew you could buy motorbike iPod cradels, but all of these weren't wide enough to accomidate the 35-40mm diameter of the stand. So I thought about making one.But I can't come up with any ideas.The stand I have is this:http://www.woodbrass.com/images/woodbrass/BATTERIE+DRUM+ROLAND+TD+9+KX.JPG(not the drums though... I wish)The rail mounts I have been looking at are like this:http://www.mountguys.com/ProductDetails.asp?ProductCode=RAP-274-AP4&click;=21Any ideas guys?

Question by Monkey-Azura | last reply
Well, I was playing Band hero, on the drums, then one of the drum pads stopped working! (it was the red one) You have to hit it REALLY REALLY hard to actually make it work, and i can't live with that. If any of you had this happen or have any ideas on how to fix this, that could really help. Thanks.
Question by Seleziona | last reply
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.

Question by j_wo | last reply
So ive played guitar/bass in the past but have recently switched to drums the past year. I would like to put together a recording system that would allow me to not only record guitar/bass onto my computer but also allow me to output those recordings to their respective amps simultaneously for playback. I have a buddy that plays guitar so would like to jam out with a bass line as well or when he's not around I can jam out to both. Any ideas of equipment /software that might be needed ?

Would it be possible to assemble a circuit using a piezo sensor and a string of LEDs so that a snare lights up when hit? My knowledge of stuff like this is extremely limited (read: non-existent) so any help would be appreciated! Also, if my idea is useless, it'd be great if other ways of doing this were discussed. Thanks!

I've been pretty focused on finding information on how to do this, but it's hard to come by. I don't feel like buying an expensive drum module but I still want to use drum triggers on my computer. I'm not sure how to connect the triggers to my computer in a way that they would function, and I'm having a hard time finding a program that would let me produce drum sounds or other samples in real time.
Question by goatambush | last reply
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?
Question by crocboy | last reply
I have Guitar Hero III for playstation2 and I don't want to get rock band. I know the Rock Band drums don't work for guitar hero. Maybe i could take apart a Guitar hero controller and make it into a drum set. I want it to be able to wammy and use star power (maybe pedals or something). and i want to be able to press 3 buttons at the same time (another pedal?). I also want to be able to hit it repeatedly to hold a note (like in rock band). I guess it should "strum" automatically when i hit a note. I don't have any idea on how to make it, but i know it's possible, and that there is a simple way of doing it. it doesn't have to look nice. it should just work. Anyway, I hope someone could help me out and make an Instructable or a youtube video or something. I'm sure many others would love to do it. thanks, schetleft
