    That is a lovely kit. Do it now! Grab yourself a decent module or VSt setup and you will not be disappointed.

      Perfect...you can get twice as many if you slice 'em in half...
      Seriously there is no reason not to convert them...leave 'em whole if you must

        Very nice kit.

        In my (conservative) opinion, it would be a real shame to do anything to damage this kit.

        Have you considered just using mesh heads, the Roland add-on triggers and a module?

          I personally think those look way too nice (and expensive) to permanently modify for an E-kit. But maybe you could find (or make) a good trigger that doesn't involve drilling into the shells or pressing metal brackets into the bearing edges.

            Examples abound on the DIY forum...no need to damage or alter the shells.

              As Chris said there is no need to damage the drums when converting .... been done many times. The Basix drums are a very nice value. The price is very nice and they are a great conversion candidate.... matter of fact Ceagles did that same finish Nov. of 07:

                Nice looking kit!

                Are Basix made by DW, or have you just subbed the front kick skin?
