Custom notes (drums)

Postby Crumpler512 » Sun Dec 03, 2017 8:28 pm


I'm looking for a way to make a drumstaff like the picture.
3-line staff with kick snare hihats. Extra toms are normal open notes with numbers 1,2,3.

Whats would be the easiest way to do this?

Your pic didn't post.
But for me the easiest way is to use the 5 line staff Sibelius already uses to notate drum kits.
Kick on the lower part.
Snare in the middle.
Toms in the upper part.
"x" note heads above the staff for cymbals. Hi hat just above the staff. There is a way to notate open or closed. Crash and ride above that.
