Building the microDRUM is very simple. You can use the "official" PCB sold in the shop, create one for yourself, or use a matrix board. Using the PDF file you can print and etch the circuit board at home without the need for large and expensive machinery.
- The PCB (official, homemade, or matrix board)
- Arduino (UNO or Duemilanove)
- 8 resistors (1M ohm)
- 6 IC sockets (16 position)
- 6 Multiplexer IC's (hc4851)
- A bit of wire
To attach the jacks to the microDRUM you must use the numbered links in the 2x5 design below. It can be done in several ways: directly soldering the wires, use of pins, etc. ...
