I have a friend that's getting into drums and he's buying an Alesis DM10X. He was wondering if he could just buy any double bass pedal off of a site and use it for his kit. There is no specific type of pedal that e-drum kits require, correct? It just reads impact velocity?

Thank you.

pls respond

That is correct.
Things with strings:
Ibanez J.Custom, Prestiges, RG8, SR5 bass etc
LP's, Strat, Tele
ENGL Retro Tube 50
5150 III 50W
Orange Terror Bass
So long as the sensor/kick pad is wide enough for two beaters to be able to fit on it side-by-side, it should be fine.
