        Just for fun, you could go with a used Roland TD4 or Yamaha DTX500/502.

        Can be had between $200 to $300. I believe they have 3 or 4 position on HH controller.

          Yamaha's DTX502 has chick, splash, closed, semi-open, and open in the module and allows for full cc control with VSTs.

            Yamaha 502 is probably the best bang for the buck module out there. RMC Audio has them for $200 shipped.

              A quick scan of ebay shows a td-6v at $61 with 15 hours to go. Might be able to get that cheap.

                Would an Alesis Trigger IO suit? Would need to use it to trigger software VST, but they work pretty well from what I've heard.

                  Welcome to the forum, Brad!

                  I would like to recommend the DTX-502 as well - because it is the most current of the bunch.
                  If you prefer to buy second-hand though, you can't go wrong with a used TD-4 or a used DTX-500 module.


                  Happy bargain hunting!

                    The TD6V is pretty good in my opinion. A few years ago they would go for $200 used on eBay, but sounds like they might be cheaper now. I have a TD9 and a TD6, and was impressed with what the little TD6 could do, and I think the user interface is pretty good as well. Lots of decent trigger adjustments available, and the sounds are good.

                      The DTX500 doesn't have variable hats.

                          I am glad to read this. I upgraded from 500 to 700 just for that reason. There was no 502 at the time. So 502 sounds like a bargain for the original poster.

                            I loved my TD-6, nice little module. DTX 502 is good also. How about some pics of your DIY shells?
