  • Can't choke CY-14C on a TD-12

    Hi!

    I recently got my hands on 2 CY-14Cs to replace my CY-12R/Cs. Everything seems fine except the choking, no matter how hard I grip the edge it just doesn't want to choke.
    Does the TD-12 not support choking for CY-14C? Or am I missing something?

    Yes, those are dual zone cymbals, piezo/switch type, they should choke when set as the correct trigger type in the Crash or Aux. inputs. Check to see if you have them set to CY14C trigger type.
    I could tell you where to stick that piezo! ;)

      Didn't work unfortunately but I think there's something wrong with the edge sensor since when I hit the edge it triggers the bow, but both of my cymbals are from different sellers so it's kind of hard to believe that they suffer from the same problem. Is there any other settings that I have to adjust other than setting the trigger type?

        The edge zone sound and choke are both from the same sensor/switch. There is no other setting you should need to make besides correct pad type. Make sure your audio cable is TRS not TS .... and that the cable is good. If you have a working cymbal that chokes swap the one that doesn't just to be sure it is the cymbal that is the problem.

          I'm most certain that it's the cymbal. The edge sensor seems to be dead or malfunctioning since I opened up the cymbal and tried to see if it would choke if I grabbed directly onto the sensor and well, nothing happened.
