Look dude, there's quite a few triggers threads on here. I'm sure if you searched you could find the answer.
Anywho, how does a trigger work? It electrically picks up a spike in the buzzing of a piezo and produces a signal that a MIDI INTERFACE picks up and PLAYS SOUND OUT OF. So whatever you use, it needs to trigger a sample and if it does that, it will work.
So you can't just trigger a drum and have it magically produce a different sound without the electricalz.
