Yeah i've probably made every mistake you can possibly have made in drumming so i've learned a good bit, and i've got some good resources for help too.
From what i can figure, until I can actually design one myself and pitch it to a company I may have to continue doing what you were saying, messing with the sensitivity and such.
But here's a little gem i picked up, for those of you drummers out there that trigger your actual drum heads with those adhesive triggers like the pintech or yamaha's,
Try picking up a set of Promark's "Drum Gum"
It's great for use as muffling because you can use it on the under side of the head, but what i did with my pintech trigger is I stuck the adhesive to the top of a shortened piece of that drum gum, that way it's easy to get it on and off when you change out heads, plus you get a little added dampening, so that when your beefing up your snare or whatever drum, say in a small setting, it will give a better mix of the sound of your original snare and your snare sound because its not so overbearing.
