Well my bass drum tower finally gave out. I had my dm8 pro at a church for several years, allowing them to borrow it, after I couldn't make church anymore due to a new job.

I have had the kit home a couple weeks now. all the pads are still good, but like I said, the bass drum tower is caput.

Got me thinking to take advantage of this time, and do some upgrading. Looking at getting an acoustic kit from Zzounds (Ludwig Element Evo) mesh heads and this;

ddrum Electronic Percussion RSKIT Red Shot Drum Trigger Kit.

So..,my question is, will this work? Or should I forget the upgrade on this older module and get a new ekit, thinking of the Alesis Command Mesh?

Hi William,

Thanks for posting. 

We have not tested that particular trigger set with the DM8, so I cannot guarantee that this will work. For compatibility information, I would recommend reaching out to Ddrum directly.
