I'm looking for a steel barrel/drum thing for a project I plan on doing. It's basically a pool heater, using an old car radiator and steel drum. But anyways... I have no idea where I can find one, where carries them or anything of the sort. I'm in central mass if that helps.

On the Chilean TV show Hagalo Usted Mismo (Do it yourself) it is showed how to make a combination of an oven and a grill using a 55 gallon (200 liters) steel drum. Although it is in Spanish, the video shows how to make it step by step. An important note mentioned in the video is that the drum must previously stored non toxic products.

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.

Hey, I'm looking to build a rain barrel, and found out that my local car wash is willing to give me a 55 gallon drum. The thing is, I don't know what kind of soap they use (I would have asked, but the guy was impossible to understand) or how to clean it out. If anybody has experience in this, that'd be great!

Spiral Drum Mag: Drum mag with two rods that rotate in one direction to push rounds to the outside of the spiral and into a firing chamber. -by Oblivitus Layered Drum Mag: A drum mag with multiple layers that fill the entire space within the drum which both rotates with an elastic and is pushed up by an elastic. When the outer layer is emptied of rounds, the drum moves up and the next layer begins emptying. This layer changing would be achieved by making the rounds press upward against a flat surface on the gun. -by Oblivitus These concepts have also been posted to: https://www.instructables.com/id/Knex-Concepts/

Hello all! I am in need of help! I am putting LED strips in a drum set. I've been brain storming but can't seem to come up with a solution. Here's what we have: 4 Drums Here's what we need: A battery powered, remote controlled LED strip in each drum. I can not put holes in the drums to run cables of any kind. These strips need to be solo-powered but also have to be able to be turned on and off without touching them as the drums have heads on the top and bottom. There will be no way to access the strips. I was thinking of some sort of magnetic switching device, but i don't know if this exists.... Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!

Hello my name is Charlie, I write from Peru and have some doubts about Drums for PS3 with Rock Band 3. Buy generic drums locally and is identical to the product of China (http://s.click.aliexpress.com/e/iEMfIyBYj?af=130194941), turn on the PS3 with Rock Band 3, connect the wireless receiver and select PS / RB and not working. Change the selector to PS / GHWT and pedal not working. Then again turn on the PS3 with GuitarHero WorldTour, I connect the wireless receiver and select PS / GHWT and operating normally. My question ?: What is the way to operate the drums on Rock Band 3 for PS3 and then use the PRO mode? And if you need to open and weld or add a card, I could indicate how. I have not found something similar in the entire site and then not want to lose my investment. Thanks for the suggestions and I hope you can help me. Cheers, Charlie,

The following is a quote of the post I've just left on the aforementioned Instructable (https://www.instructables.com/id/One-Person-Submersible-from-a-Plastic-Drum/?&sort;=NEWEST&limit;=40&offset;=40). I would really appreciate the removal of this instructable. "Hi. I am a certified OSHA and CSAO commercial diver air dive supervisor, level 1, and qualified Master Scuba Diver Trainer with the Professional Association of Diving Instructors. This is a very dangerous idea. You might not die, but someone else might/will/and has. Just because there is a disclaimer there, you and Instructables will be subject to litigation. There is a reason that people need a certification to operate this type of life support equipment. http://scuba-doc.com/ageprbs.html "Because of Boyle's law, maximal changes in volume occur in the 4 feet (1.22 m.) closest to the surface and the diver sustains a tear in the pulmonary parenchyma with the escape of air into the pulmonary venous outflow." I can quote other resources, such as the US Navy Dive Manual and the DCIM manual, but it's Boyle's Law, not Boyle's "kinda' might happen. I don't know". "

This evening, I decided to try something out. As a bassist, it is key that I keep time, and play along with the drum beat. But metronomes are boring, and drum machines are too expensive. So, I set out to discover another way to capture drums beats. At the same time, I was looking at a few empty glass jars I had sitting around. An idea struck me - I would use the jars for my drum modeling machine! But how would I do this? It turns out, it is very simple. I won't give away the secret here, but I will hopefully post an instructable sometime this week that tells you how. I will link the instructable when it is up.

Sooooo... I'm planning on making a very nice pretty etc etc pair of drum sticks for a friend who is a serious drummer and among other things I'd like to do to make them individual is getting a design on them - be this by staining, printing, stamping or whatever (I'm not sure how it's done professionally and I feel paint would quickly come off... :/) So, dearest Instructablers, does anyone have any guidance as to how to do this? Cheers!

Bubblegum SequencerThe Bubblegum Sequencer is a physical step sequencer that lets you create drumloops by arranging colored balls on a tangible surface. It generates MIDI events and can be used as an input device to control audio hardware and software. Finally, people can't claim anymore that electronic music isn't handmade.Also, check out the similar BeatBearing. The BeatBearing project is a simple Tangible User Interface that uses ball bearings to program a sequencer.

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.

Hi all, I'm working on a project which involves a pipe like structure with something like a DIY electronic drum pad on top. (like a stand alone drum) When the pad is hit it, triggers a key on a MIDI device such as the KORG nanopad http://korg.com/Product.aspx?pd=415 under the actual drum itself. This nanopad acts as a remote control for tracks created using music software on my laptop. So when the pad is hit, it starts a track. Problem is, I have no idea how I will make the connection from the pad to the MIDI device. I was thinking about using a Peizo signal but am lost as to how to wire it up or if thats possible. If I use this instructable https://www.instructables.com/id/Electronic-Drum-Pad/ should I be able to simply solder the Peizo wires into the nano keypad relatively easily? Long shot but if anyone has even the slightest idea what I'm getting at here, any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

About two years ago a friend of mine told me that you could use washing machine drums as charcoal burners. Generally they would be placed on bricks, filled with charcoal and because of the holes in the sides they put out a lot of heat. It just so happened that we had recently had a good marquee blow down and I'd kept the tubing because I'm a bit of a womble (it drives my wife nuts). Anyway I set about building a tripod frame to hold the washing machine drum off the ground. Step by step construction instructions can be found here..: http://theaccidentalartisan.wordpress.com/2011/07/25/buiilding-a-firetub/

If anybody is interested, i now have a good source of maple where i can make atabaques (and presumably congas and bongos) to your specific dimensions for quite cheap. i was just doing a writeup for a group in my area for an atabaque at 32" tall with an 11" head, 14" bulge, and 4.5" foot in half inch maple for about $200. now, other woods can be used (and the type of wood dictates if the price goes up or down). if you have an idea about the sizes you would want, just throw them my way and i can get you prices of raw materials and labor. i can also burn patterns into them if you would wish.

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?

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

I'm wanting to put some lights into my Drum Set, and I really have no idea what to buy. I can solder, but would prefer not to. I would prefer to spend less than 50$ (US) for lights and power supply's. I don't mind ordering online as long as I can pay with Paypal, but if I did I wouldn't want to spend more than 70$ including shipping to Minneapolis. ( I would like a choice of colours) (coloUrs) What do I buy?

Today I got Rb2 and GH4 For Xmas. I heard the rockband drums work with gh4. So, today I tried GH4. The orange note was still there. If you don't get it, then what I am trying to say is that GH4 Drums have 6 different notes: Red,Yellow,Green,Blue,Orange, and Purple (Bass). Rockband has 4: Red, Yellow, Blue, Green, Orange (Bass). Usually when you play the RB drums on Gh, you see the original 4 colors (You cant see bass till you hit it). But I saw 5. I couldn't hit the extra note because I didn't have an orange pad... PLEASE HELP

Hey all. What I am trying to construct is some kind of circuit that will trigger an LED when a piezo is tapped. The reason I would like to create this apparatus is to trigger lights using acoustic drums for my band's live show. I would like a light to go off every time a drum is hit and I figured that using a piezo would be the best way to do this. Any help that anyone could offer in this would be greatly appreciated. Thanks again. P.S. I found this diagram for a piezo switch but I am unsure as how i could use this or even how to make it in the first place. I am very new to electronics.

We have moved into a house with oil central heating that has not been used in at least 5 years and with no oil (Kerosene)at all in the tank. We want to test if the boiler/oil burner actually works. Therefore we do not want to buy gallons of oil at the moment as we just want to test it to see if it works at all and then we can buy oil in the winter to save the expense now as it will not be in use now. A lot of companies have minimum orders however we were told we would just need a drum of oil in this instance to test it - we are not sure if that would be enough. Is a drum of Kerosene enough? Where would we buy a drum of Keronsene?

I know such device exist all ready(MIDI) but I'm not the most wealthy person (I'm a low budget kid of guy). And I'm looking to make it instead of buying it. My main concern is the storing and programing the sound to a button.

Hi There are already a few threads and topics on this site explaining how to hook up a piezo triggered light strip, however I'm looking to build a custom drum kit with particular lighting system and i can't find the info I need to build it. Inside the drums I want a constant, static colour of my choice on the led strip (e.g. blue) and then the piezo trigger triggers that LED strip to to different colour (e.g. red) for a quick flash and then back to blue. I would also like to have control over which colour combinations I use, so if i want yellow drums with green flashes, i would hopefully be able change that with a remote. Is there a circuit or a mod of an existing circuit that will handle my needs? Cheers, Owen

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 ?
