  • CY's turning to the left

    Okť, I Finally tried out one CY-15 a CY-14 and a CY-12. The test was not so well because I must do it on a TD-8.
    Besides that the attack and the sensitivity was worse than my PD-9, what border me the most was that the cymbals turn about 90 degrees to the left when I hooked them up on a symbol stand. Recording to the manual the ROLAND logo must be on top, but when I did that it turns to the left.
    When the cymbal turns to the left there is no sensitivity on the left side of the cymbal. (on the place where the ROLAND logo is). How can I prevent that the cymbal is turning to the left.
    The guy at the store tells me I can try them out at home on my TD-10 before I buy them, but if canít stop the cymbals from turning I donít think that I will have them at all.

    Anybody please? The look is great but the feel sucks at this time.

    Groeten,

    Peter

    Peter,
    The CYs new in a box should come with a notched piece that goes over the end of the cymbal mount before dropping the cymbal in. This notched piece locks in place and the cymbal sits on top. This keeps the cymbal from turning side to side (no spinning on axis). When installed properly, they will not turn like that.

    Also, the CYs really must be experience with a TD-10exp with V-cymbal control to get all the benefit.

      Thank you dr. Kildrum!

      I will go back to the store and ask for the notched piece.
      I already knew about the TDW-1 , thanks, I did order that thing a week ago. Well now I'm looking forward for trying the CY's out at home. Let you know how it went....

      Groeten,

          Way to go animal! The little thingie protruding to the right tightens the piece on with a normal drum key. The CY-6 has a corresponding notch on it's underside that sits on the little "roof".

            Don't give up on the CY-6, Peter. I got one for Christmas and find the playablilty to be very good. It's easier to trigger the rim than on the PD-7's I was using. And the choking technique is practically effortless--no special touch needed.

            Now, if only we could see wide-scale availability of the new Roland crash/ride cymbal...at a price closer to the CY-6 than the V-cymbal....

                Hi K-Chuck,

                Thanks for your reply, I want a 14 inch crash for my kit. Unfortunately, they make the CY-6 only in 12 inch size. So I have to buy the much expensive CY-14.
                Btw I see you are using a Yamaha Kick. Is that an upstanding one? And how do you like it comparing to a KD-7? Does it produce lesser noise? What does it cost?
                You see a lot of questions about the kick. Maybe I'm gonna buy one.
                I also gonna try your Crest toothpaste

                Groeten,

                Peter

                      Actually, Peter, the Yamaha is just the pedal I use. The kick trigger itself is the KD-80. I don't know how it compares to the KD-7, but I like the upright KD-80 and have no problems with it. It's also less expensive than the larger KD-120, although I see you like the larger drums.

                      And Crest toothpaste is an important piece of gear to keep the drummer's teeth white and keep his breath fresh!
