DIY a lazy e-drum trigger guide

Here is a quick guide to build a cheap and effective e-drum trigger you can use with your Rakit Drum Synth. (For when a finger just won’t do!)

You will need:

  • A tuneable practice drum (I used a REMO practice pad)
  • A piezo disc element/pickup
  • 3.5mm mono jack
  • 2 core wire (I used 3 core, just tied 2 together)
  • Some tape
  • Flat head screwdriver
  • Determination!
