Our new Solderless Drum Repair Kit is the perfect balance of a simple and cheap fix for any unresponsive drum pad, consisting of the entire working parts of the drum pad which can be installed in under 10 minutes. This kit is compatible with the Guitar Hero and Band Hero drum kits for either the red, blue or green pads, or can just as easily be used to build your own custom drum kit.
The drum pads work by means of a small sensor on the underside of the drum pad which picks up vibrations when the pad is hit. The wires from this sensor take the signal back to the main circuit board of the drums where all the important processing takes place. This repair kit includes a pre-assembled sensor, wire, plug for the circuit board with the special adhesive pad to allow you to attach it to the drums.
Installation could not be simpler! Open up the back of your drums with the appropriate screwdriver (Phillips or Torx 10 both of which are common sizes) unplug the old sensor wire from the circuit board (using pliers if needed) and remove the old sensor from the underside of the drums, then plug the new sensor in and stick it back to the underside of the drums using the special adhesive pad provided with this kit. The installation video above shows just how easy this repair is.
