This is a recent project to mod a broken Guitar Hero World Tour drum controller from a yard sale into a real electronic drum kit. The nitty gritty details are in the blog but basically I opened the case and attached all the piezo electric drum triggers in the kit to an Arduino, and then used the Arduino to trigger MIDI notes that played sounds through a PC. Overall, it turned out well. It was my first time using an Arduino and I completely love the little thing now. Here's a video of my son playing the kit after we finished it. I had a great time making it and I'm now looking for my next Arduino project to undertake.
