So I found a Rock Band Drum set in a dumpster tonight, the problem is that it is missing the foot pedal.

So, does any one have any ideas on how I could fabricate a cheap alternative?


PS. Here is what I'm going to be using it for.

You can buy a trigger pedal for an electronic kit and plug it in with an adapter. It's 1/4" to 1/8" adapter and plugs in right behind the controller portion of the drum set. When I get home I'll post some other links for Rock Band Drum modding and stuff. There's alot out there if you're willing to Google for it.

Here's some links to get you started.

I'm planning on building an edrum set soon. I may also build a rock back set. Either way good find on the drum set.

This guy is building an e set as well. Lots of useful info in there if you read through.

Thanks for the response, but I'm looking for something really cheap like building one for less than $10.

yeah as far as i know, the rock band pedal is just a switch that closes two contacts on the jack

you can make your own but it will be a pain to get it to be practical, instead of a piece of junk
Call me Dan

Gear:
2015 Les Paul Studio - Wine Red
Ibanez SA120 (black)
Marshall MG100HDFX
Custom Les Paul (work in progress)
About 10 other guitars and a big pedalboard. lol

I thought the instruments forum was about instruments not toys.



um... I'm using it as an electronic drum set for recording... crappy I know, but its better than nothing.

oh, and if you have time to spam peoples threads you must have time to read their posts... I had a link to the program I am using for the drums.

On the pedal itself, I'm going to attempt to build one, just got to get to radio shack to get some parts first.
