Those amps are great for guitar but lack the low end that you really need to amplify drums. Unfortunately there is no easy way of getting around it, you'd need a larger cone for the bass frequencies.

If you're only amplifyng hand percussion samples, the amp might have enough output but I wouldn't bet on it with brass instruments unless you were very careful about placement.

You need a small PA system to really do electronic percussion justice. It's true, that's your trade-off. You can either carry the real instruments around, or you can carry a small electronic device, but couple it with a large PA system. It isn't so much "either-or" as it is "six of one, half a dozen of the other".
