I own this and it is a trip! You can do some much with any sound as far as what happens when and after you hit it...it is crazy. I used to have this in my kit and used it as a second snare for weird effects, but ended up hitting it too hard and it started triggering on its own so I took it in and had it reconditioned. It is a bit delicate, but is crazy with the options. The manual has all kinds of calculations and models you can implement.
