  • Found a new 16" ride, and more...

    Well, well...

    While on the lookout for a TCS snare pad (been going on for 2 years now... starting to lose hope) I stumbled onto this guy who is offering a 3-zone + choke for Roland (yamaha may be 2 zones only) in a 16" size.

    The guy has a 14" crash (about $55), a Roland compatible HH with controller ($110) and a trigger mounting system to accommodate and shell sizes from 8" to 16".
    Here's a link to his Youtube channels showing his products.

    I will be ordering a 14" or 16" to check it out, also since it is about $60 only.

    Here's a video of it in action:

      Looks like no rubber pads on the cymbals, but that is easy to add if needed.

        Trigger system looks cool. Great size adjust idea.
        The hihat looks too funky for me! VH-11 only ugly er LOL.
        Cymbal looks good to me. The vid is a 2 cable ride correct?
        Where did you see prices and ordering info?
        From China?

          It's a DIY guy from Taiwan.

          Yep, the ride looks like a typical 3-zone ride and 2-cable inputs from Roland. Probably means it will be dual zone only for my Yamaha.

            The triggers look pretty cool too, how does one order stuff from him?

              I could order from my place and ship it to where it would need to go.

              I ordered a small 14" crash to start with. will give a review when it comes in.

                Got the 14" delivered today.

                I'll give my comments later... for now, here's a quick video showing different stick noise between the Presence, Yamaha and XM cymbals.

                  Perceval,

                  Did you ever comment on this crash - I may have missed it.

                    Did I?

                    yikes, I forgot.

                    Well, in short, the cymbals triggers ok, but not great. It is very light, so there's not much dynamics when hitting the cymbal. Soft hits are soft, but medium to hard hits are pretty much te same. Also, the shiny soft rubbery cover seems like a good idea in controlling stick noise, but it gets marred easily with stick marks. Better "stick" to matte finish on strike pads.

                    Hope that helps!
