Does owning a kit working like one of Roland's, yet taking a shortcut on price and feeling frugle sound good? Then maybe DIY edrums are for you...just like the Drumbalaya slogan says: "Practice silently (or jam as loud as you want)."

How did I get inspired? Remember, I once had noise problems too: I wanted to be able to practice without setting the neighbors on fire. Tapping on my acoustic kit just didn't allow me to drum to my true potential. When I looked at a Roland TD-20S, it was love at first sight. Until I saw the price tag. That kit became a dream.
About a year later, I looked at Roland's cheaper kits. An old TD-6 used kit was affordable, so I indulged. It was amazing - I played until my fingers just about bled. I purchased upgrades, and it became one of my best purchases of my life. So I thought - I signed up to the forum and discovered DIY drums. Within four weeks of chaotic ordering and selling, I completed a converted drum set with a Roland TD-12 module.
So, if you're ready to try it, feel free to use my ideas on this site. Remember to read the disclaimer at the bottom of each page.
