i think it would be easier just to buy a used kit... there's a LOT of fiddling that goes into getting everything to play and respond properly (which is also on the vdrum forum)
any advantage you gained by having nice triggers would be completely offset by having a cheap module and the amount of time spent messing instead of playing
been there, done it
