  • CY 6 cymbals

    Hi V Friends,
    I recently bought 3 CY6 cymbals. I've had a problem with 2 of them already. The rim stoped working. At first when I would hit the rim area it would choke the cymbal, then the rim ended up not working at all. Has anyone else had this problem? Are the more expensive V cymbals better? Or did I just get a bad batch of CY6's? My Hart cymbals worked fine but I was missing the second trigger sound from each cymbal input. That's why I switched to the Roland cymbals. I wish Hart would make a cymbal that would have the same functionality as the V cymbals.
    Have a nice day... Rick

      Thanks for your reply. I bought the cymbals in December. They've worked well until a few weeks ago. I switched another cy6 to the inputs where the cy6's were malfunctioning and it worked fine. I think something happened to the FRS switch. I think I'll try a CY14.

      Does anyone change around the sounds that are assigned from the edge of the cymbal to the bow of the cymbal? I like my edge to be the crash and the bow to be an effect such as a splash or china. To me, it feels odd to crash a cymbal with the tip of the stick onto the bow.

          Mine broke last night. I was in the middle of a song and when I hit my main crash, it would immediately choke. I swapped it with my ride to make it through the night. I am going to take it back to where I bought it and see what they can do...

            Hmm I ordered two CY-6's. My purpose is to use them as two single crashes, but I'm curious if and how the pos. sensing and/or choking will work with my ddrum4 brain, and also the pos. sensing with my alesis d4.

              Arg...well, it just happened to me too. Mine came with a V-club set that I've had for under a month. I was just playing a song and I had what you guys describe...instant choke. That lasted for a few seconds, then I got no sound at all for a few seconds. After another 10 seconds or so, I found that the center trigger now triggers no matter where I hit the pad.

              I'm going to try and get it replaced. I was almost ready to buy a third CY-6, but now I'm wondering if I should go with something else. I really like the CY-6...I'm just worried about this happening again.

                I have four of these myself (which work perfectly so far). Sounds like Roland is headed for a recall on them. Has Roland ever recalled a product?

                  I had a total of 3 CY 6's go bad. I really liked them. The response and isolation between the rim and bow were both great. One day one of them started choking as soon as I would hit the rim. A day or so after the first CY 6 malfunctioned the second one began having the same problem. I brought them back and put the credit towards 1 CY 14. The sales person told me that Roland had a bad batch of CY 6's. Within a week the third CY 6 had the same problem. I also brought that one back and put the credit towards another CY 14. It's too bad because I did like the feel and functionality of the CY 6 and the price was right too. The CY 14's seem much more durable. I was told Roland has had very few problems with the CY 14's and many problems with the 6's.
