Acoustic to Electronic drum conversion

Recommended Posts

For lack of a better place to put this, I thought the Coffeehouse would be appropriate.  I have posted this elsewhere, but on a DAW forum, it's hard to find a spot.  A hardware forum topic might have done the trick, but this will work.

I converted an acoustic snare drum (a DW 13" x 5.5" many-ply maple drum, to be specific) to an edrum using parts purchased from UFO drums.  I did a post on my blog about it, along with a video of what the end product looks like.  I'm sure that I will have have future posts about how it performs.

Want to see what I made or know someone who might be interested in such a project?  Point them at this link:

I couldn't afford a electronic kit back in the mid 90's, so I converted a Remo practice kit into an electronic kit using piezo transducers glued to soup tin lids, plugged into  a second hand Alesis DM5.

It's worked pretty well over the years, but a real electronic kit is next on my hardware wish list. I will miss having 5 cymbal pads though...
