DIY Electronic drums

Geekboxjockey shows how to make an electron drum set on the cheap… – “This is kind of a general overview, the basic concepts are fairly simple. I looked at a lot of info out there before building my own, and I just kind of planned it as I built, it just takes a little creativity. Sorry to not include any links, just google it, I couldn’t find the specific pages I used, but there is a community of people out there who do this stuff.

So an electronic drum set can run you back $600-3000+, sometimes without a module, my main reason for doing this was to save money bigtime. For comparison the cost for me was around $150-200 for all parts, then the module, so a total of at most $370, which as you drummers know is even cheaper than entry level acoustic sets! The most expensive item was the electric drum module or heart of it all which I will get to later.”Link.

    Has anyone come up with a do-it-yourself drum controller? Either that or maybe a PIC controller for the drumset, using analog in, and passing it off to a software encoder ?
