Has anyone hooked up triggers to practice pads to see if there is enough vibration for the trigger to pick up a hit? I have the DW practice pad kit and was thinking of a possible cheaper route to an electronic set so I can play/record in my apartment.

I don't know about the DW pads but you can get triggered Remo practice pads from Drumometer, and I've made a couple myself

The Remo pads could work.
