Using copper plating and tape I assembled rudimentary drum sticks. I soldered wires to the copper plating in order to create my input. Each “tap” will create either a “x” or a “z” the inputs required for taiko.
This is the full wiring for the project including the leds. I used green and yellow led’s to signify the color differences similar to the red and blue that taiko uses.
But I know you can’t tell the difference so the colors I used for the led’s do not matter. : )
