This is the rock band portable drum kit from mad catz. I am just posting as I know people will be buying the old RB1 drumkit which is only £10 now, which will inevitably break.

The pads that come with this kit will fit easily onto the RB1 drum kit and they are pretty much indestructible. All you need to do is drill some holes and fix down with bolts.

Definitely interested in this! How noisy is the finished product - the originals sound like banging a wooden spoon agaist a tupperware box.

Why isn't there a PS3 version?

Well personally two of the heads on mine are pretty much silent while the other two make a slight knocking sound but that is just because I tore off the foam that was on there and haven't replaced it yet on two of them.

If i can remember correctly the RB1 kit was very loud, and this is much quieter.
1st:
Remove the broken rockband drum heads, this is simple, just give each a firm pull and undo the cable
2nd:
On mad catz drums you will see that there is some rubber on the bottom of each drum head.
3rd:
Peel the rubber off and find the screws, there should be 4. Unscrew these, then pull the head casing apart.
4th:
Drill a whole as near to the centre of the BOTTOM piece of casing (not the decorative one) as possible...I recommend you measure although and didn't and it worked fine.
5th:
Drill a whole into the centre of where your old rockband drumkit head was.
6th:
Place a bolt in the hole you drilled in the mad catz drum head and then screw it back together.
Lastly:
Place the mad catz drum head on top of the rock band kit and thread the bolt through the hole you made in it. Then place the nut on the end of the bolt and fasten tightly. Repeat for the remaining three drum heads.

I will post details regarding the bolt and drill bit sizes although so long as the bolt is longer than 50mm and the same thickness as the drill bit you should be fine.

Questions?

Thanks for that, I'm going to order one and set up another mad catz modded kit. Will be ideal for 2 player, complete bargain.

DO NOT DRILL THROUGH THE PATTERN SIDE http://i1122.photobucket.com/albums/l538/s4m312/14122010268.jpgThis is where you drill the whole to put the head http://i1122.photobucket.com/albums/l538/s4m312/14122010270.jpgAnd this is what you should end up with before fixing into place with a nut http://i1122.photobucket.com/albums/l538/s4m312/14122010272.jpg



Thanks for taking the time to do this I am definitely going to make this a project once i take delivery. Top man!

Not a problem. I spent ages trying to find ways of repairing the RB drum kit because it definitely does break, its crap. This is the best way to fix them permanently, the other methods involve repairing the old heads with epoxy glue which just leaves weak points where it will crack again.
