If you've got something like an elCheapo Alesis D4 with what ever
software version, you even can use headphones to trigger MIDI data, if
the self build pads won't bounce, you can get bouncing drum sticks, but
in the end you'll have something like a Roland V snare and you
especially will have a good food pedal from the 70s or early 80s for
what ever kick pad.
Don't confuse additional e-pads used with a real drum set, with
something that should replace your keyboard to play MIDI drums. The
Roland V drums are amazing. I don't have the money to get them, but IMO
any other thingy that should replace the keyboard will dry very soon.
Don't spend too much money for testing such solutions.
Btw. how much or less MIDI jitter do you get? You might record similar
flam rolls as http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8pIN1I63oTw  by audio
and MIDI and then play them in unison ;).
 *lol* Seemingly he didn't use the drill to protect the Cym, when
there was a rip.
