Get a Choke Hold (eCymbal Choke Switch)

I have had this idea for awhile now, but I am just getting around to do something about it. What I have here is what I hope will become the standard DIY eCymbal choke design. It’s simple, low profile, and easy to build. It is in essence a film switch. As time goes on, I will put up templates for adapting this design for Pintech practice cymbals. It can also be used on a-cymbal conversions. Read more…

More Detail about Set #5

If you go to the gallery page, you see most of my past attempts at trying to prefect what I thought would be the be perfect eDrum set. Set numbers 4a, 4b, & 5 use an aluminum shell hoop that I rolled myself. I knew when I did these that there were few, if any, eDrum DIY’er who attempted this.

I currently use this trigger as my bass drum trigger in set #6 (which at the time of writing this, I do not have pictured). Set #6 is an acoustic conversion.

Painting the Bases & adding T-nuts

The first thing that we need to do is disassemble the mounting plates and eye-bolt assembly. Once that is done we can start to paint. I would suggest that we paint outside so it is well ventilated.

The reason for the gray primer is because we will be using a grey texture top coat (plasti-kote Stone touch). Read more…

What does it mean to be a Musician?

Published on September 10, 2007 by in eDrum News

This posting is actually posted at an affiliates site, Guitar For Life. Even though it is written from a guitarist point of view, I still think a drummer can relate. It’s a good read, and be sure to tell all of your guitar buddies about Guitar For Life! (I had to put a small plug for it)

From the article:

I was recently asked what I thought it means to be called a musician. When I was younger and practicing hours everyday, I looked at being a musician as someone who played an instrument professionally with a high degree of proficiency. A musician was like a highly revered samurai, someone who had achieved mastery over their instrument and could “wield” it effortlessly. Of course many other people I……READ MORE
