Small/cheap midi drum controller? Effects Pedals, Units & Accessories

Small/cheap midi drum controller?

Sorry if I phrased the topic title poorly. I'm looking for experiences with midi controllers for getting drum parts into the computer. I've got a set of v-drums, but my audio gear/computer is in a different place than the drums. I can record some parts and then disconnect the brain, haul it over and dump midi, but it's a pain in the ass all around.

I'm more interested in something small that I can plug a kick pedal into and at least do kick/snare/hat parts along to tracks I've already got in protools. I was looking at old things like the yamaha dd-11, but I'm sure there has to be a better option now. velocity sensitivity would be nice, but is totally not necessary.

anyone have recommendations?

Alesia has some options that you might want to look at like the control pad and sample pad.
