Default Electric Drum Question

I use my Electric Drum Kit also just as pratice pads without sounds and without power on, i wanted to ask if this is a problem for the kit, as i thought the analog signal cannot be transformed into a digital one and this may damage the electronic circuit or something like that

What you're asking about isn't a problem... There's no signal if it's not powered...

BUT... any physical object will eventually wear out with use (especially ones you beat with a stick). So you may wanna get a practice pad just to lengthen you edrum's life.

You can bang on your e-kit from now til Ragnarok, I'm pretty sure you're not going to damage the triggers inside unless you see damage on the outside.
I don't want to work, I just want to bang on the drums all day!

No, not a problem. I do it all the time.

They are made to be hit.

I've got Roland pads that are over ten years old, and I've only ever had one die on me.

They take a beating pretty well.
