WELCOME IN THE STUDIO

In this section you can find things that will assist you in your own computer-based musical productions. There's a lot of original Dubroom material which you can use, but also third party material. There's much more than "just" sampled material, as you can find some little pieces of software, presets and other things as well. Everything in this section is, like all stuff in the Dubroom by the way, legal and -a lot of times- absolutely free of charge. Definitely worth a visit, for novice to veteran.

BLAMINACK - HOW TO BUILD A KETE HAND DRUM - PART 11

This is a picture of the flesh ring and the retaining ring. The retaining ring is the flat stock ring on top. The retaining ring is going to have the tensioning rods welded to it. It is VERY important that the flesh ring be the same size or even slightly larger than the retaining ring. Here is a crude drawing of how this works…

Notice that the skin wraps around the shell, and under the flesh ring, and back under the retaining ring. Now when the retaining ring is pulled down by the tensioning rods it locks the skin on to the flesh ring. This is why it is important that the flesh ring is the same size or a slight bit larger than the retaining ring. If it were smaller the skin would slip right through…

This is the material that the tensioning rods are made from. On the left is a material called all thread. It is basically a threaded rod. I am going to cut this into pieces about 7-8” long, and weld the pieces to the ends of the rods to the right. Those rods are ¼” cold rolled steel. You can buy all of these materials from a home improvement store, such as Home Depot here in the U.S. If you have a steel distributor in your area then you can save a considerable amount of money buying from them. In my area I can buy a 20’ long section of this for $8 verses $2.87 for a 36” section from Home Depot. That is the way to go if it is available to you.

I have now welded the threaded rod to the ends of the tensioning rods… those are on the right in this picture… (Another way to do this is to cut the threads on the rods your self instead of using the all thread rod. The tool to cut them is fairly inexpensive, but it is hard work and very time consuming. If you can, welding all thread on is the way to go.) In this step I am going to weld the tensioning rods on to the retaining ring. It is extremely important to line up the rods with the coupling nuts so I am marking the retaining ring in line with the nuts so that I know where to weld the rods…This is VITAL to a nice looking drum!
