  • What cymbals to buy

    Hello all,

    I recently purchased my Jobeky drum-set, which will hopefully be here in my apartment in a month or so! So now comes the part where I need to buy cymbals.

    VH-13 is first on my list, and buy it, I shall! Though, about my 2 (...or 3... or heck, 4) crashes and ride... that I'm a little open to.

    I am leaning towards getting the CY14/15 cymbals, just because they seem to be the quietest e-cymbals out there. I do love the look of the E-Cymbal III, but as far and wide as I've searched, I can't find comparisons on the two. I had visulites before, but they gave me issues with my TD-20. That, and I didn't like the solid rubber edge they had. It kind of made it hard to get the second zone to trigger. (Still, Pintech was a great company to deal with. Great service and friendly.)

    You know, come to think of it... If you aren't trying to find anything Roland on Edrumming... I mean ANYTHING, it's impossible to find info on Hart, Pintech, or any other company. I found out about Jobeky and Diamond by accident on here. Well, I found Drum-Tec... but those prices? Kit better wash my dishes too... still want one of them snares though... one day.

    Sorry, I tend to ramble a bit when typing. Just a scattered brain up here. The question I wanted to ask was,

    Are Rolands cymbals the quietest cymbals out there that have all the features the TD-30 can take advantage of (Choking, PS, dual zone)?

    The CY-15 is a great ride cymbal. I recommend this over all other rides. As for crashes, I use both the CY-14 and Yamaha PCY-135's. They all work great. I like the choking on the Yamaha's better than the Roland's. It feels a bit more natural to me. Both trigger great, but if I had to say one was better than the other I would say the CY-14 triggers just the slightest bit better, but its really a non-issue. I like the look of the Roland cymbals over the Yamaha's. I like the price of the Yamaha's over the Rolands... Both work great with the TD-30 and all functions work great on both.
    I think my work is done here.

      +1 for Tommy_D's reply(I would quote it if there was a "Quote" button available anyone's posts but mine) Also Digital Drummer Magazine has quite the comparison guide for most of the cymbals on the market in their past issues. http://www.digitaldrummermag.com/HOME.html Check their archives.

        I appreciate you mentioned Pintech, and I am sorry we don't have as much info as you would like. This is actually the #1 priority on our list right now (getting more info on the website) - We've been pretty bad at it, and are now focusing on giving as much info as possible about our products. I will get right on the cymbals section, and you should see a change within the next few days.

        With that being said, please don't hesitate to message me here if you have ANY questions on Pintech products. I want you to be completely informed about what we have to offer, and I am here to help. You can also always email me: ryan [at] pintechworld [dot] com

        Thanks!

          Roland's rubber cymbals are quiet - certainly quieter as, say, Alesis Surge's - but not the quietest!
          This accolade belongs to the Yamaha PCY-135 and PCY-155, respectably!


          Check out the following links:

          'Digital Drummer' magazine, the February 2012-issue, has an in-depth comparison about e-ride cymbals:

          Also, in the February '11 issue is an article about stick-noise - with dB figures!

          The quote function appears to be working!

            Well, one day I hope Zildjin perfects their 'Gen16'. I mean, I remember when they first came out and I was like, "This is the coolest thing ever!" and then I heard them... Maybe it's just me, but I think they sound absolutely terrible. Like hitting trashcans. NOTHING like hitting a crash. Though, the hats were pretty much stellar.
