DIY Drum Kit with Circuit Bent Pedal Effects

I was down in my basement playing with a few of my older projects today and took a quick video to share with you all. In this video I use my 4017 based gate sequencer to control a set of circuit bent Kawasaki drum pads. I took advantage of the stereo output on the Kawasaki drum kit to use a stereo spliter cable to separate the left and right audio channels. I sent the left audio channel directly to my PA system while I ran the right through some circuit bent Danelectro pedals I had laying around. The result Is a clean channel and a distorted/echo channel which I can mix separately on my PA system.
