  • MDY cymbal holder

    At this moment I use PD-9 and PD-7 pads as cymbals mounted on MDY-7 holders. I want to buy two CY-6 or CY-14 crashes (can someone advise me what's best, comparing those two) and a CY-15 cymbal and I want to mount those on the MDY-7 holders. Is this possible or do I have to replace the MDY-7 stands for MDY-10 stands?

    I'm not sure if I follow you. MDH-7Us are pad mounts (L-bracket). MDY-7Us are cymbal stands. Are you saying that you mount your pads on the MDY-7U cymbal stands? Whatever the case, MDY-7Us will work just fine for CY-6s or CY-15s. L bracket type mounts will not.

    As for better, do a search. Plenty on that here. IMO opinion there are no better cymbal triggers out there right now than the V-cymbals. The CY-6 is great but doesn't swing quite as well as its big brothers. For the difference in price though, many agree that the CY-6 is the best value for money around. If price is not object, get the CY-15s, etc.

      Thanks for your answer dr. kildrum.
      I did a lot of reading about the CY's on this forum but I can't figure out what the difference is between a MDY-7Us cymbal holder and a MDY-10Us cymbal holder. If de CY's fit on a MDY-7Us, why did Roland make the MDY-10Us?

        The MDY-10U is the new, improved version with the new hinged clamp as found on the V-Concert and V-Session kits.

          Stu is correct. Roland calls it a "hatched mount". You can place these on the rack and take them off without any sliding along the tubes. The clamp part hinges open. I think they cost about $2 more than the older version at Midwest. I've heard it suggested that they are stronger too, but not sure about that.

            dr. kildrum and mcconaghy, both thanks for your answers. I now know it's not necessery to buy the MDY-10Us for the CY's.
