Dror provides us with a video tour of his excellently thorough homemade electronic drumkit. It’s a full performance system including sound synthesis and even the amplifier! Some good ideas here if you’re considering a diy kit yourself -
In order to get the same feel with foot pedals i decide to use regular pedals and perform modification to each one of them, the modification include mechanical upgrade with aluminum plates, for the bass pedal i designed the trigger at the lower section and i change the position of the hammer, in the HI HAT i added variable resistor so when i push the pedal the resistant change and sent to the MIDI unit.
– Watch him demo the kit here.
