I don't think triggers are nessasary so much. They are easier to get the perfect sound and stuff but give off a very unnatural feel. And lack power IMO. They sound just like clicking with no actual BASS behind it. I think you can do just what drawn and quatered and the doc said. Pillows and holes. Just mic it flat and then adjust it in the mix.

There have been many bands that don't use triggers on their bass drums and they sound fine to me.
