Default 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.

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).


j

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

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.

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.

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.

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.

Default 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)

Sure I'd probably never deserve a kit like this, but it's all in good fun ^_^

Default 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...

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.
