ACOUSTIC BASS DRUM TO ELECTRONIC

 

 

base3

I used a 2″x3″ wood cross member attached to the Roof Truss Clipwith screws. The piezo sensor support is a round piece of wood with bolt going through it.There are also many listing for piezo sensors on Ebay.


base5

I adjusted the sensor support so the foam block is 1/8″ above the rim of the drum shell.  It is easily adjustable with the wing nut.


base22

I used one layer of  fiberglass window screen sewn on a bass drumhead rim. It took a little trial and error using different types of foam to get this screen mesh head to not be so noisy and bouncy.

This configuration worked well for me, it is very quiet with no bounce and it triggers properly.The white arrow indicates foam from a life jacket. The black arrows indicate pieces cut from a mouse pad. The top mouse pad and life jacket foam are on the backside of screen.This methodworks very well also. Feels allot like my Roland KD8
