Default Roland SPD-S. What foot pedals to use?

Greeting drum-heads.

I own a Roland SPD-S. I am interested in putting the foot pedal jack to use and invest in a pedal. What brand and kind do you think I should use? I don't even know where to begin when shopping for one.Can they can be used in a bass drum style (single strokes) and in a hi-hat style (holding down the pedal).
Thanks for the help.

You might start here: http://www.drumsmylife.com/-vp62615.html and there's a lot of info here: http://vdrums.com/forum/archive/index.php?t-16086.html I run a KD-7 kick trigger (or 2 daisy chained) into TRIG IN for my kick drum(s). I have yet to use either the FOOT SW or the EXP PEDAL jacks. I always use a real hi-hat in my rig.

So what if you want to use a KD-7 for kick sounds AND a PD-8 for auxilary snare/percussion sounds? How would you configure the inputs?

The manual has all the information you need on this. It's a bit lengthy to describe it here but start on page 17. Also the Roland website has a bunch of articles on SPD-S setup including how to use a hi hat controller. Go to Roland-> Support and register (free). The Knowledge Base has the articles
