Drumset Designing Tools

Here's an update...



Note.: I've add my splash and 12" china to my setup later than I took the kit picture.
Re: Post your DW KITBUILDER Dream Kit

Here it is:

Drums: Custom laquer design (Autism logo: puzzle pieces in blue with some missing pieces in black.)
Cymbals: 14in hats, 10in splash, 16in crash, 18in crash, 20in ride, 18in chinese all Sabian AAX

Autism logo?

No offence intended, but personally I think that's a little corny ...

Editing Kit Constructor II

Hey everyone - does anybody know how to add cymbals to Kit Constructor II? I already have the images and put them in the appropriate folders, but I don't know how to make them appear in the dropdowns.

Thanks for your help!
Re: Editing Kit Constructor II

What the heck is Kit Constructor II?
Re: Editing Kit Constructor II

you can't do it that way, as far as I can tell. The only way I could get it to work is to rename the new file to an already existing item (that you would never use)
That way, the name already appears in the drop-down; you just have to remember which item you replaced with your new pic.

KCII is a program that makes 'drum blueprints:'
