  • Pintech TC series cymbals

    Anyone have any experience with these single-zone cymbals? Stick noise? Durability? Tracking? Sensitivity?
    Thanks!

    They are great for single zone cymbals. I have the 14", 16", and 18" ones. I also have the hi-hat pair. Good actionand feel for a low price.

        I haven't been able to find any info on Pintech TC hit-hats...where did you get yours?

          Sorry to reply so late.

          Actually the hi-hat is a TC-14 and a 14" practice cymbal (no piezo) http://www.pintechusa.com/New_Pintech_Si/tccym.html mounted facing each other on an X-hat bracket http://www.pintechusa.com/New_Pintech_Si/hdwr.html (bottom of page).

          I modified mine by removing the piezo protector from the back of the top hi-hat, drilling a 3/8" hole in the bottom hi-hat about 1.5" from the center hole, mounting the jack through the new hole in the bottom half and taping the two halves together with black electrical tape (which didn't even show). It made them a sturdy unit and eliminated the cord from sticking out between the halves when mounted. It even looks like a real hi-hat! Need a picture?

          (I must admit I am using a Roland CY-6 as a hi-hat now but the Pintech worked great. I like having the edge and top sounds of the CY-6 available for hi-hat)

              Clymore, thanks for the information and pics! I'm gonna give it a try. Right now I'm using a PD-5 for a hi-hat and it just isn't cutting it, feel-wise. I'll let ya know how it works out!

                For my Hi-hat I use a single Pintech TC-14, which I clamp really tight on a normal cymbal boom-arm. It then feels remarkably like a real cymbal, with just a little bit of flex when you hit it hard.
