  • Anyone use a CY12R/C as a primary crash?

    The CY8's in the used TD9 kit that I bought are starting to suck and I need to replace them.
    Does anyone use CY12R/C's hooked-up as dual-triggered crashes? (Sorry if this is a stupid question.)
    I would get two CY12C's but I located a pair of R/C's for decent price.
    Would there be any advantage to getting the CY12C's over the CY12R/C's if I'm only using two triggers?

    the cy12rc make a great 2 zone crashes. there's a fix for the cy8. simply replace the original 27mm piezo for a 35mm one. i did it and works great!

      10-4 . I do know there is a fix - I just like the feel of the CY12 cymbals. (I have a CY12R/C that I am using as a three-trigger ride.)
      I was hoping to get opinions as to whether a CY12C would be more desirable over the R/C as a crash if one had to choose.

        Its the same cymbal and will react the same, Just the "R/C" has a dual input and Is able to trigger the bell hooked up as a ride. I have 2 of them as primary crash cymbals.

          On closer examination, the two R/C's were not as new as they appeared. I sprang for a pair of standard CY12C's for $24 more.

            Is there a specific 35mm piezo I need to buy ? or will any 35mm one be ok ?

              Yamaha PCY-130S [dual trigger], much cheaper if you could find some, perfect for crash trigger in Roland.

                  27mm
                  35mm

                  These are quality ones, that actually have a brand and a datasheet, from a specialized store. Some of the ones on eBay probably work equally but why take chances ? Farnell operate practically all around the world so should be easily accessible in most countries.
