Re: Good Drum Module for Hybrid Kit?
I do pretty much the same thing. Top 40 rock/dance stuff. All I wanted to do was add some 808/303 kicks and snares, hand claps and stuff like that on the cheap. I now use a SPD SX live with a trigger on my kick, and 2 other pads along with the 9 pads on the unit itself. The Yamaha module will give you most of the sounds you probably need for this.
Amplification is very important. Unless you have a really good PA with really good monitors, you're going to need some way for yourself and your bandmates to hear these sounds. Adding electronics gets tricky. And expensive.
