DRUMSET DESIGNING TOOLS
 
Moderator Edit:

Please use this thread to discuss drumset desiging tools such as the orginal DF KitConstructor (it's a .zip file and the instructions are in German), the Drum Works Kitbuilder, the Pearl Dream Kit Workshop, the Zildjian Cymbal Configurator, and the Sonor Drum Configrator.

Re: Request for Bernhard, other members post feedback.
 
go to my website on this link:

http://jasonhorsler.tripod.com/id10.html

scroll down to the drumset designer, click on it (to open the full size version) copy and paste into your microsoft paint then cut and paste onto another paint application and build your drumset.
here is my drumset built with this tool i made (it is to scale).

ps: it might help to increase the contrast a bit to get rid of the unavoidable bitmap fringing.

Re: Drum builder by me
 
thx man .yeah there is on your keyboard there should be a button (next to the F12 key) that says 'print scrn . sysRq' if you have a german keyboard it says 'Druck - S-Abf' now when you pushed that button on your keyboard open paint or any graphic program and hit CTRL/V , or right click and paste so youll have the pic in the program and thats it now just save as jpg or such and show me what you made :D lol

Re: DRUMSET DESIGNING TOOLS
 
Dw has a kit builder also. It is called the kitbuilder. It is in my oppinion the best tool to create a drumset. It gives many different sizes,colors, and a choice between Maple or Birch.

give the drummer some 08-21-2005 10:04 PM

Re: DRUMSET DESIGNING TOOLS
 
I need a professional looking result as in Modern Drummer artist gear sections. It does not have to look like drums but the overlaps of cymbals and drums should be able to work like they do on my kit. Plain Circles and squares would be fine.

NUTHA JASON 08-21-2005 10:36 PM

Re: DRUMSET DESIGNING TOOLS
 
well have you tried the ones here.my one is true to scale so you could just cover them with boring ol' circles or squares if you like.
here is an example of some famous kits i made using my designer (i shrunk em a bit). guess whose kits they are?
1?
2?
3?

When I saw him I don't remember any small toms. Cozy Powell with Jeff Beck (2 albums) was amazing. Emerson Lake and Powell was great live too. http://www.geocities.com/onemat2000/...ellDrumKit.jpg

I dont think i did it rite. Although it does look ok. But the image is 1.8mg in paint so it wont cum up. Can u make the file attachment maz size bigger NJ?

Yea i enlarged it. It actually doesnt look too bad, just i did it in paint, wouldve been better in photoshop or sumthin, but i re-installed my computer. Also thanks for looking into the bigger attachment size issue it will definently help.

And on Macs i believe there is a prog called band in a box, can u create kits in this, cause i think it was u and Bernhard that were speaking of a great kit making program but it was on MACs only.

NUTHA JASON 12-26-2005 01:08 PM

Re: DRUMSET DESIGNING TOOLS
 
i'll try upload it as a bitmap later on. will be a bigger file but will be neater and allow for more 'working'

Re: DRUMSET DESIGNING TOOLS
 
Its just in paint wen u want to cut and paste things other than a square u have todraw round it so i always get little white bit which erase the bass drum.

KITBUILDER-check this out if you don't know of it.
 
Hey, I'm not to sure if someone already posted about this but I thought I might share this with those of who may not have already seen it. It's called KITBUILDER and I found it on the DW site.

http://www.dwdrums.com/kitbuilder/

Basically it's a little Flash thingy where you can design a kit. It's pretty fun, I like it alot(it's always fun to indulge also). For those of you who don't like DW, it should still be pretty cool to check out. I found it interesting and wanted to share with you guys. Sorry if you think it's stupid(or if I'm the last one to find out about this) or something but cheers to those who found it interesting like me! haha.
Here's one I designed just so you can see what it looks like. (Ignore all the various windows around it...I had to take a screenshot of my monitor =P)
http://www.filehigh.com/serve/3927/88330.gif
Sure I'd probably never deserve a kit like this, but it's all in good fun ^_^

The kitbuilder tread
 
I thought it was a good idea to make a tread like this, where we can post pictures of different kits and setups we build in kitbuilders (my favorite is the DW kitbuilder: http://www.dwdrums.com/kitbuilder/index.htm). There is no rules, you can post ur own setup, ur dream kit or whatever you like and get comments....

I'll start out with what my dream kit would be something like :)

EDIT; that would be if I will understand how to save those kits i make in the kitbuilder...

Just made it...looks pretty awesome. Some stuff needs to be worked out, but....

Re: The kitbuilder tread
 
Hmm, it was harder to host the pictures than I thought, ur pic is to small franklinj, and if you just save it as a print screen picture it gets to bigh for imagesshack...any ideas?

I think this is working guys, you have to make it an attachment. man, now I feel stupid.

franklinj 04-29-2006 12:22 AM

Re: The kitbuilder tread
 
I wish the itbuilder had jam blocks, roto toms, cow bells, go go bells, etc. Mine would be crazy if it had all the extra percussion items in it.

Lets try this one more time...
This kit was inspired by Carter Beauford and Nick Mason.
