  • Hart Dynamics ECymbals with Roland TD-20

    Hi,
    I am new to the V-drums, and I saw quite amazing cymbals from Hart Dynamics (Gold finish). I am looking for a small 8-9'' Splash cymbal for my TD-20 set.

    Will it work with TD-20 if I purchase one of those ECymbals from Hart?

    anyone has experience with this?

    It will definitely work. Hart design their stuff to work with all Roland modules, as they don't make modules themselves.
    Welcome to the forum.

      Thanks for a prompt reply.
      Does anyone have any suggestion for a model of ECymbal I should purchase? As I said, I am looking for a splash (maybe upto 10'').
      Are they delivered with a stand, or do I have to purchase this separately, to install the cymbal on a TD-20?

        You'll need to buy an arm and rack clamp separately, as for which to get then...

        Take a look at those. They do a nice 10" in the Ecymbal II range, or if you want Black cymbals, the studio version is the same.

                  Abominations......that made me laugh. Strong word for them, but I have to agree!

                    One problem with Hart is that their splash is mono with just one zone .... and the TD20 inputs support dual-zone pads. I have set up here a CY8 as my splash: I have a "regular" splash assigned to the edge .. and a more cup like/smaller splash sound assigned to the bow... works great .

                        The ECII10B is the metal one. You need a clamp and boom arm as well yes. If you like the quiet cymbals you already have you may want to rethink this and look at a Roland CY-8 or CY-5.

                          Whoa, wait a sec.

                          Did you mean that those ECII10B are loud, as normal metal cymbals? I was almost sure that you didn't hear too much acoustic sound from them. Or am I mistaken?

                          Experts?

                          thanks for the replies, by the way!

                            The Hart rubber pads on their metal cymbals are loud(ER) than the Roland cymbals (or their Yamaha equivalents). That isn't to say they're loud as in "whacking frisbee" loud but the noise level is a bit higher and a bit different.

                            And you don't hear any acoustic sound from them, if by that you mean the sound of an accoustic cymbal. If you hit a stick on the metal part of a Hart metal cymbal, all you get is the sound of a stick hitting a piece of metal, ie. no acoustic cymbal sound.

                              No, no, no. The Hart metals give a dull thud when struck. Like grog said, they are definitely quieter than the the plastic cymbals. What Erik was saying, if I may interpret Erik, is that the Roland rubber cymbals are quieter than the Hart metals, although I will add that quieter is in the ear of the beholder. I personally don't think they are significantly quieter than the Harts, but they are quieter. To get an idea of how loud they are, go check Smartrigger's website. There is a video there showing a product demonstration and it will give you a pretty good idea. Keep in mind, that the Harts will be somewhat quieter as they have a rubber pad on them...Smartriggers don't. DISCLAIMER: This is in no way an endorsement of Smartrigger!
