      Very helpful. Thanks. It seems everyone has pretty nice things to say about Hart products. Howard

      ps - regarding Roland pricing...not sure if this will help anyone - but when I ordered my 2nd CY14C crash last week from midwestpercussion.com, the "checkout" price was $209 even though I was expecting to pay the listed "sale" price of $245. Turns out, their "real" pricing is $209, $209, $249 for the CY12, CY14 and CY15 which you only find out when you add them to your shopping cart. I know, still not cheap but a bit better...

        I found the hi-hat and ride prices somewhat close. The crash prices was where Roland was eliminated in the competition for my business. Seeing as how I was going to go a different way with the crashes anyway, I was prompted to explore other ride options as well.

          Great review. But: how do the cymbals sound?

            I tried the new CY 6's today and was very disappointed. The CY-14's are far superior.

                I guess it shows how different we are. I got 2 of the CY6's, and LOVE THEM. They are the best buy out there I think. They are just great in every way. And at $77.95 ea, you can't beat that. I got mine one a price match at Sam Ash. They beat the midwest price. Oh well, different strokes....

                  jgel,
                  Glad you like the 6's. They are a bargain as you have stated. I've been using the Cy-14's with the TDW-1 and the responce is amazing. Did you demo the V Crashes? If so, were they set up loose to "swing" properly? Just curious as I was comparing the two.

                    In case you're interested in Hong Kong the prices at Tom Lee Music (the only retailer I know that does e-drums) are:
                    CY-6 HK$650 About US$83
                    CY-12H HK$1350 About US$173
                    CY-14C HK$1450 About US$186
                    CY-15R HK$1500 About US$192

                    Thought you might like to compare. I did look at the Hat and the CY6s last night. The Hat is as loud as a PD7 maybe louder and did not seem worth the price for how it felt. The CY6s seemed cool but I have to wait 2 to 3 months for them to come in. (I saw them on the TD6).

                        Cliff-
                        I did try the V-crashes, and thought that they were VERY nice, but pricey. The CY6's choke as well, and I can get 4 for the price of one. I wish I could aford the VCrash. The CY6 swings OK, but not perfect. I was thinking of trying out a cymbal spring with it. But I really do love the CY6, best trigger on the market for the price. I am waiting for Sam Ash to get more in so I can get 2 more.

                          The Hart high hat is awesome, but loud. It is made of metal, too just like the ride. It plays and looks just like the real thing.

                          Hey Drooling dog, the first time I saw the pix of your kit I thought the visu-lite china I thought it was painted gold like the Harts. It took me a while to figure out it was translucent.

                          BTW, how do you get so many pads into your TD-10? I'm assuming you split the input for your kicks and use only one input for your ride. Is that correct? I'm thinking of doing the same thing, but not sure how to split the cable for the kicks.

                            Splitting the kick input into two pads should be in the manual.

                              The kicks are Y'd into one jack. The ride only occupies one also. No bell sound right now, but I think I'll have that resolved within the next 24 hours. Right now I have the bell sound attached to the outside edge of my right-side hi-hat.

                              My V-drums are almost officially complete. They've changed a bit since the last pic I posted. Hopefully I'll be posting more in the "General" forum within the next day or two. Stay tuned.
