Default Triggers for a mesh head kit

Ive been thinking about triggering my practice kit and ive been told to look at Ddrum and Roland triggers. Im curios if anyone has used either of these on a mesh kit and how the work, i've heard a lot of bad things about ddrum but i've seen lots of people using them. THere's about a 200 different between the two for me and id rather not spend an extra 200 pounds if the ddrums are better than roland :P

You can do it yourself and save even more....

Take a look at the DIY section over at vdrums.com

I went through the mesh-trigger thought process a couple weeks back. If you've already got a brain to run the triggers into then the cost isn't so bad, but if you've got to buy a brain aswell the triggers then you might as well buy a cheap 2nd hand electronic kit. Alesis DM5 kits go for about 200 on Gumtree.

Or you could do the DIY method as Latzanimal said. Aparantly it's quite easy, I looked into a bit and found that Maplins seem to stock everything you'll need. There's plenty of vids on YouTube on how to do it. I landed on my feet and found a spot where I could leave my acoustic kit set up, so I didn't follow the idea through.
