Have you tried the 18" Goedrum bass drum? Was considering getting one (maybe 2) more for aesthetics than anything else but didn't think it would hold up triggering-wise compared to my trusty old KD-140....I would buy the "All as is" and just put my own triggers inside the pads, that way you know that it will not have the issues, you get the looks and the sizes, the module is great (you can add your own samples). I would probably get Pedal Trigger triggers anyway or make my own (Upgraded) version of it. and get center mounted triggers from Drum-Tec or such. maybe upgrade cymbals to Polands or better (I forgot the brand of the better ones). and finally you can get a "Poland" hi hat controller from Drum-Tec, but why spend that much when a $50.00 Goedrum is just as good? (I know I own one and it's great).
