  • And now for my next newbie question......

    I've done several searches here & haven't been able to find anything on whether the CY-14C will function as a ride on an updated TD8. If you happen to know I'd apprciate hearing about it.
    BTW, I found a private sale for a CY-12H and CY-14C in new condition, four months old for $350. We have a tentative agreement but I keep coming across more conflicting opinions here when I search...kind'a like delving into conspiracies & UFO stuff: the more you read the less you know & the more confused you become :-)
    Anyway, do you know if the CY-14C will do the ride thing? Thanks!

    The CY-14C makes a fine ride for the TD-8, updated or not. I usually put a second ride cymbal on the bow of one. Note that the CY-14C does not have the seperate bell trigger like the CY-15R and CY-12R, but perhaps this isn't a big deal to you.

      That's great news! No, I actually don't care to have a bell on e-cymbals. What I'm used to is PD7's & like you I've been putting a ride/crash on the edge...anything but a bell. My only real complaint with the 7 is that it's so small. It sounds like maybe the CY-14C is essentially a larger, nicer PD7. If so, it should suit me just fine :-)

        I think the CY-14C is more than just a larger PD-7. It swings like a real cymbal, and you can crash the edge like a real cymbal. It looks and plays much more like a real cymbal. I always hated playing the edge of the PD-7, but the v-cymbal edge is a pleasure to play. Riding the bow is easier on the wrists than a PD-7, due to the swing factor. Crosstalk may also be less of a problem with the v-cymbals. The rubber has a different feel (better IMO) than the PD-7. And to top it off, the v-cymbals are quieter than the PD-7, and much quieter than the PD-9.

        The only downside, of course, is price.
