As a 40 year guitarist and repair technician I had to laugh at this until I thought about my younger days of starting out. What I see here is that you made a momentary trigger out of a stomp box that apparently had problems, that you think you can build an electronic bass drum to play it with. Is this correct? See, the amp only gives a bass drum sound ONLY if a bass drum sound goes through it. Amps only provide audio power to the input signal. Where to get you bass drum sound is what you need to find. I believe you are thinking of a sample. A sample is an actual recorded sound of a bass drum that you could actually trigger by stepping on that button. You could find this on most cheaper casio, yamaha, emerson, radioshack, keyboards or drumpads or any of those amateur toys. Most of them allow a trigger pedal to be plugged into it and operational. Now, after you find something with a bass drum sample that you can trigger with your pedal, that device should allow you to plug it into an amp to amplify it. I hope I didn't confuse you much and had a close perspective of what you tried to describe. Please let me know if I can help further.
Unplug all the other triggers and see if it is in the mechanics of the kick mechanism. If not, then one at a time plug in the other triggers till you find one that is causing it. Could even be the bass when amplified is triggerin lightly the rim of the snare for instance.
you have to make sure the red crash 1 is on the cymbal w the choke zone on it and plugged into crash one on the module. crash 2 goes in the cymbal w no choke and plugs into perc 2 on the module. also make sure the ride zones are plugged in to the corresponding zone on the module. bottom line double check all connections and reference the setup guide if u still have it. i had the same issue.
Here I've listed valuable reference information on bass drum tuning and achieving the lowest pitch possible. Some things are trial and error but once you fully familiarize yourself with drum tuning you should be able to achieve the sound you want. Hope this helps.

Bass Drum Tuning Lesson
My guess would be something faulty with the cable connector to the kick pad.
Source the faulty link by reconnecting the pad so that:
1. A tom pad triggers the bass drums sound
2. The kick pad triggers a tom sound
3. Don't use cable you use with the kick when searching for the fault.
This should tell you whether it's the pad, the bass drum channel or the cable that is at fault.
Hope that helps!
First thing to check is if the vibrations of the bass drum amplified MIGHT be triggering the cymbal pickup. Damp the cymbal pad with your hand and see if it still does it. If not, then shield the drumset from the amplified output.
If this does not prevent the problem look for a grounding problem of the triggers.
Listen to the output with headphones to check for noise.
OFTEN the output of a drum machine is CORRUPTED by an inadequate sound system. The waveforms generated by a drum machine tax the sound systems. A bass drum output can drive the speaker cone such that it goes beyond the linear range that the speaker and amplifier can handle and this appears as "noise". The noise may sound like a buzz or totally break up.
Turn the volume down and see if EXACTLY the same noise appears at low levels. If not, then saturation of the amp and speaker is likely. Continued use while it is doing that will often destroy the speaker.
