  • Ride Cymbals - a definitive answer please?


  • #2
    Do you have a preference for the size of the ride?
    The roland CY12 r/c is 12 inches and the CY15 is 15 inches wide, but the bell trigger is the same size (as far as I am aware). I like the CY-15 and have had no problems with the bell trigger (reported, but fixable, problem with some cymbals) - the size and weight of the cymbal means it goes some way to mimicking the physical attributes of an acoustic ride. I briefly had a try on a CY-12 r/c but prefer the larger CY-15. If you keep an eye on ebay you should be able to get a CY-15 for £120 or less (I've bought 2 this way - one I use for a ride and the other as a crash), although some go for much more than this.

    And for dual zone I presume you want a cymbal that has bow and bell trigger capacity and not just bow and edge (and use the edge as a bell) - therefore ruling out a roland CY-14 (?)

      Thanks. No preference on size at all, and Yes, as said, just Bell and Bow sounds required.
      All further suggestions welcomed.

      OOH! My 666th post!

        But do you want to have a bell zone that physically resembles a real ride rather than using an edge to trigger a bell sound?

              Thanks Bruce, I couldn't find that in search, though was sure I'd read something here!

                Yammy baby

                I'm quite happy with my Yamaha CY150 s, it's quite weighty and the large size gives it ride status, i tested it against the CY12 r/c and it was better in my opinion, i paid £89 delivered brand new

                I'm not trying to take you for a ride, honest

                Modificatione needed though if u want 3 way, works bell and bow if not. That third zone (edge) is handy, i can assign a deep crash or ride edge with sizzle mmm yummy yammy

                  I really do love my Hart ride. It is SOLID, heavy, well made, all metal, and has two very distinct triggers for bell and ride. I would get another one in a second.

                    I, too, remain a big fan of the Hart Ecymbal II metal rides. The look and feel work very well for me. Perhaps flurbs could set you up with a good deal?

                        I'm 0.00% familiar with the td6 as far as setting parameters. (triggers etc.) I had to do a bit of tweaking to get 2 distinct sounds from my Hart ride....

                        but after I did that it worked (and is still working) like a champ. can't recommend it enough!

                          Gotta put my vote in for my Hart ECII ride. It is definitely my favorite cymbal!
