The following was originally posted by Hellfire over at Vdrums.com: Most people when they get into DIY edrumming for the first time, they tend to use the Remo practice pad conversion. Split the foam in half, attach a piezo to a metal plate of some kind, and sandwich it between the foam halves. That works
Final thoughts “X4L”
Now that I have built five of these triggers (two of which I used as guinea pigs for another ideas), I thought I would try to tweak my own design. Let me first say that, because of lack of funds and wanting to start another project, I will not be building the X4L any further
It’s time to get this eDrum working. In the last post we made the foam sensor coupling. In this post we will install the piezo/foam coupling assembly to the sensor plate and solder up the connections. We will be cutting 3M heavy duty double stick tape into small circles. Pull off a length of tape
Sensing The Vibes
I know it has been awhile since my last post, but I have been testing different types of foam sensors.? I have decided that the best one for the X4L electronic drum trigger is the one shown in the picture below.? I’ve been calling it the “tower” coupling.? I believe this to be easier to
Templates Not Printing To Scale On My PC
