Guitar Hero Drums Mod for PS2? Answered

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


Wow thats a truly unique idea. I wish I knew how to case mod the controller like that, but I'm nowhere that good with electronics. I believe the auto-strumming would be the biggest issue, I'm not even sure if it can be done. If you do find a way, please post an 'Ible about it, I'd love to know.

That's a great idea, but it sounds pretty difficult to do.

yah, i know that when you play guitar hero with a ps2 controller (not the guitar), you don't have a "strum" button. maybe i could hook up the controller so that when i hit a drum, it presses a button... I'm still thinking about how to do it...
