I have a Roland SPD-6 "drum pad", which I absolutely love! Works very 
nicely for controlling various MIDI drum synths (the internal sounds suck 
as can be expected so you do need external sound sources, but hey, our 
Linux computers have plenty to offer :)). It's also relatively cheap 
(compared to full MIDI drumset at least). I have foot pedals for hihat and 
bass, and use the pads (with real drum sticks) for rest.

I'd be curious to know what other low-budget MIDI-drumming solution people 
use (aside computer/synth keyboard drumming)...?

  Audio software for Linux!
