Default Brass cymbals for Roland TD20 V-Drums

Good day everyone! 1st time poster so I'm hoping yall can help me.

I am going to buy some kind of brass electronic cymbals for my Roland TD20 V-Drums. I primarily only want to upgrade the Ride cymbal right now. The stock rubber ride cymbal just doesn't respond very well. I have found the following brands.

Alesis SURGE 16" Ride for ~$200

Gen16 AE 38 Boxed Kit with 18" Ride and 13" Hi-hat for ~$550

Question is can I spend ~$200 on the Alesis SURGE and just plug n play on my kit without having to buy another "brain" unit to control it?

Any other thoughts or recommendations for getting accoustic like cymbal response/feel playing through the TD20 processor. Much appreciated!
Thanks,
Scott

With a top end module such as a TD-20 you will not need another module but I'm not sure how the Alesis SURGE has triple triggering like the Roland Ride. Not sure the TD-20 will triple triggering hence the separate input for Edge on the RIde cymbal. If you go for Zildjian get the new Direct Source pick ups over the Dual Condenser, I've heard it makes a huge difference for triggering.

Try getting in contact with Jman on the Vdrum and 2box forum. He builds custom A2E cymbals and might be able to sell you some, or at the very least help you with what you need to buy to build them yourself.
