Alright, I'm about ready to get my setup together.

I'm looking at these, which seem pretty damn good for $1500:

It doesn't come with a double-kick pedal, but it looks like I can add one on. Is just a normal drum set of DK pedals useable, or is there a "VDrum specific" model? I can't seem to find any info. I assume I can just add on another one of these:
And I'm good, right? And if I want to add more drums (toms, etc), just a few of these?
And this for cymbals?
All told for around two grand, I get:
- 4 Cymbals (two crashes, ride, splash)
- 4-5 Toms
- Double Kick Pedal
Plus I figure ~$250 or so in cables to hook it all up. Does that seem like the right way to go? I don't really _need_ the brain for recording, but being able to just flip it on without hooking a computer up to it will definitely be nice to have, plus it has a bunch of learning modes and shit like that built in.
I've been looking at one of these myself, it's worth noting that certain brains are compatible with certain pads, for example I don't *think* you can run the VH-11 Hi-Hat with the TD4 brain and (again I *think*) even with the TD9 you don't get full compatibility with it either.
Though at this point I'm just looking at getting the TD4 myself, hooking it up with a double pedal and running a MIDI lead into my interface and maybe upgrading down the line should I feel the need.
