Building your own Electronic drums.
 
Just curious if anyone has done this yet. About 2 years ago I picked up an "Ion drum rocker" to use with Rock Band/Guitar Hero. Ended up quitting, and haven't touched the kit since.

Lately I've been getting the idea of adding onto it and replacing a lot on it. Which eventually lead me to wondering if anyone has ever built their own set of electric drums out of spare parts and what not. I know someone out there has had to have done it lol. I've just yet to see it.

Yep recently did this over a weekend, have a look at my thread : http://www.drummerworld.com/forums/s...ad.php?t=92340

there is some videos in the links too, but as they are fairly hard to pick out here are some of them :
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v7RSfkYjYiQ - testing the first drum out
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z9PGphXwg5I - after I did the remaining
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1xx8FsBRXRM - after i got used to mesh over rubber

If you need any help let me know

I built my own electric drum by gluing a piezo sensor to a mesh drum head. I wrote up a bit about it here

Mine isn't made from "spare parts" but is still technically a DIY, A2E kit.
Here's the thread if you need some ideas http://www.drummerworld.com/forums/s...ad.php?t=94063
