2-- triggers are around $20? i thing i might get dome ddrum triggers.... but how much are the modules? my church uses a roland TD-6 kit that is crap, but being poor, i could see if theyll let me use that when we get the new kit (a roland TD-20S). if that doesnt work out, how much are the modules?
I've been learning a great deal about the use of hybrid kits and you are right on for assuming u can beef up the sound of your natural kick by triggering it. Very few drummers use a trigger alone in lieu of a Mic. I have one of the DDrum triggers and its great, very durable and responsive, sturdy mounting too.
Also you might want to research the new roland triggers endorsed by travis barker and thomas lang. I'm blanking on the model, RT somethings?
Depends on your budget and needs.
Modules are pricey, but make sure you only want to trigger before getting one. I wanted the best of both worlds, triggering and sampling, which the Roland SPDS is keen on. However without the use of an added midi triggering device it only supports the use of 2 triggers on top of the nine sample pads built into the thing.
Any specific drum questions are welcome seeing as I work at one of the world's premier 5 star drum shops.
