First, thank you to everyone doing this. What an awesome site! I'd love to learn to make my own songs, maybe 1 day I'll understand lol. As a real drummer, I got bored playing on RB drums ( even with the cymbals ). So I took an old kit and went to town with it. Converted it to electronic and used my old electronic cymbals. Right away, it was a lot more fun but being a real drummer, I still struggled with a few notes. The open HH on the ride was messing me up and the yellow as a crash. So I added more to my kit. Added 2 more cymbals for yellow crash and added a ride next to my HH for the open notes and for fun added a rim shot lol.

So now the experience is absolutely amazing. We all play as a group ( drums, guitar, bass, keyboard, singer(s) and this drum kit feels " real ". So thought I'd share. Again, love what everyone is doing here. Let's hope I learn to make songs. dpL7aNt.jpg

Love this set up! I'd totally do this given the resources. It looks like it would be a blast. The rim registers on my e-kit without having to separate it so I just play on the rim (stick laid across the snare and all) when the song calls for it (see Natalie Merchant's Wonder for a good rim playing song). And when it clicks along on the kit just like in the song, it's truly magical.

First of all, congrats for the great setup!

I just asked about the open hihat in the other thread because I didn't see this one first :) but now I see that you have a small extra "blue" cymbal next to the hihat for that. It's a shame that RB can in fact recognize open hihats but doesn't have an option for triggering blue notes with them, it came so close...

I've had the Ion set since they came out and love them, and don't understand how anyone can have fun on the original toy set.  

You must absolutely love combining the real thumping sound with your toms and bass drum.  I'm jealous!!
