This was my first time creating drum pads, as well as Paul who came up all the ideas and donated all the materials that were needed. To get all the drum pads done were more difficult than we expected. The drum pads are created for the students to practice so they can really feel the bouncing when they beat. How did we make it, we collected the old inner tubes of motorbikes from several garages in town and get some nice and cheap wood from the shop. Before putting the rubber on the wood or the wood together, we needed to sand to make make sure the wood is to rough. We use a 20 cm-sized plank to placed several pieces of rubbers on the top where is supposed to be beaten and that was the most difficult part, because we need two students to help us to pull. Finally, we ended up by completing it. We hope the drum pads can be useful for the students to have an extra practice when there are more drum students in the future and instead of sitting and waiting for their queues they can keep beating with the simple drum pads.
