    Roland CY-8

    This is the new version and it is even more responsive than my older CY-8s. Good to see Roland keeps improving their products.

    Solid Cymbal

    Great cymbal that works well. My church has had these for many years, so they will last!

    Solid Electronic Cymbal

    Great Cymbal from Roland. Solid build and very responsive. Two zones plus choke. Roland has the best electronic drums and accessories by far.

    Roland CY-8

    Bought this to add a cheap splash/crash cymbal to my TD-9kx2, and it works perfectly. Just what I needed, and I didn't have to spend a fortune.

    Roland CY-8

    I bought this cymbal mainly for the choke feature. It works better when recording sounds from the module (audio track). I custom mapped it to trigger in Steven Slate plug in and got it to "choke" about 60% of the time. Funny this opportunity came about to review it as I have been considering what cymbal to upgrade it with. If I had known how this cymbal worked the way it has for me, I would have passed on it and invested more in a cymbal that is better quality.
