Hi Max,
While I agree wholeheartedly that your approach is a good way to go,
I have to disagree that it's all that hard to emulate sounds that are 
close enough to a drum kit to function in the same way.

represents what I found possible using a cheap multi-FX
(though like you, I mostly make percussive sounds just by playing 

To emulate a kick drum, using technique (& maybe FX) is a lot of fun,
and also leads to the discovery of a whole range of sounds.
...not "disappointment" ;-) , well not for me anyway.

neither do a lot of popular drum sounds, that's a factor that makes 
emulation easier
