Hey music & drum fans, I've created one of my 1st Lego musical instruments, an electronic drumset!
It has a bass drum, 2 tomtoms, a floor tom, a snare drum & 2 cymbals!
It is based off a Simmons SDX which was used by poplular bands from the 1980s including Genesis, Midnight Star, Dire Straits, etc!

There is a control box on the right, which allows the drummer to adjust the pitch, tone, volume, reverb, etc.

I've also gave the drumpads different colours! :grin:

Excellent work! I like how the whole thing is constructed.

Perhaps have some round pads on the sides to give it a smoother look - I don't know if those parts are actually in LDD or not.

Electronic drumsets should have square pads. I think he did a perfect job on these. Great work! :classic:

Oh. I didn't see where it said Simmons pads, so you are right.
But there are hexagonal pieces in Lego so you did the next best thing. :tongue:

I could've used the clip on octaganal 'stop signs' but they ain't available in LDD yet, especially in LU mode...

I think so, but I don't think that Brickforge would ever have an affiliation with TLG.

I meant if you were going to build it with real bricks those would be better. :classic:
