  • Roland CY-14C rubber cymbal mount wear and tear

    Hi, I have a roland cy-14c crash cymbal. After almost 10 years of use, I have worn out the rubber area in the middle of the cymbal where it mounts onto the stand. The triggers in the cymbal all work just fine, so I would like to repair it, or come up with a reasonable work-around if possible. Has anyone ever successfully repaired the mount area after it wears out? I've tried to be creative without actually taking the cymbal apart, but nothing seems to work. I think that this is probably a common issue with the design, but I can't figure out how to search the web for it and get relevant results. Any suggestions are appreciated.

    Thanks in advance,

    Wow you must really flog your cymbals.
    My Cy14 cymbals are from my original TD-10 kit I bought in 2002 and still hold up to a good bashing every 2 weeks with my band as well as practice and playing at home.
    What about pop riveting a piece of aluminium plate right through the internal plastic cymbal plate and drilling a hole in it?
    NOW with New Improved TD-30 Module, some V drums an other music making thingies with miscellaneous small furry animals, large hairy animals, motorcycle bits and a big muff:rolleyes:.
