Musicians, makers and electronic enthusiasts that have a few old Pringles crisp tubs lying around may be interested in a new project for the weekend, which can transform them into a awesome MIDI drum set.
Watch the video below where Instructables user TheSpodShed show how they were built and can help you create your very own MIDI drum kit using a little Arduino hardware and programming.
Ever wanted to unleash your inner rock god, but couldn’t find the space to put a drum kit? Frustrated at trying to play GarageBand with fat fingers? Or just someone who can’t stop eating crisps? Whichever it is, this is the project for you!
This Instructable will show how to make a set of mini drum pads using Pringles tins, an Arduino, and some piezo sensors, which will trigger any MIDI device or computer drum synth. The pads are velocity-sensitive and as easy to play as drumming your fingers. Let the fun begin…
