hi there

I found some nice trick for the rim trigger ... i attached Two small piezo of 10mm to 2 little metal L bar , mounted like the crossbar design to a free snare or tom lug with a simple screw ... place one at 8 o'clock and one at 5 o'clock , just where you hit ... The signal is more powerful than if you mount the piezo to the shell , mostly when it is wood...

Here are some pics ...

to make it you will need this....



to do that ...



and stick it like that...



the domino really helps to have a steady connection , it s also easier to exchange the trigger if needed....
 dont put foam between the metal bar and the shell in order to have the strongest trigger signal ....

IMO it s better to place two of those guys for a DIY snare drum or tom ... the metal bar can be smaller or have a different shape , i just took what i had ...

/// Five minutes of work and costs less than 2 euro :)

have fun...
