    Anyone tried these yet???

    Yes.

    I have them on my floor stock Studio Elite kit...
    I also have 3 more demos.
    They are extremely quiet, and so far with a TD6 that has not been dialed in, they are responsive and fun to play...much much much better than their TC cymbals... I need to tweak the setting for the bell. They are dual zone and chokable by the way.
    Pintech has improved their quality pretty extensively since the last kit I had in stock. Their pads are re-vamped and actually play pretty good. I am still having some challenges tweaking in the AX14 snare however...

    Back on the subject - they are a great cymbal for just under $100.

    Interested in trying one, I'll send it to you.

      Zenbals

      I just picked up 3 dual zone zenbal directly from Pintech in Greenville, SC and they are great! I'm using them with the TD-8 and have set them up with the CY1 setting. I just had to change the sensitivity a little. Very clean and one zone does not set off the other. Pintech also let me trade in the old cymbal pads I had for the new ones for $33.00 each.

        Zones?

        I've looked at pictures of these things, and am curious where the zones are. Is one on the Bell itself, or is it just the rim and the bow?

        The reason I ask is that when I look at the pictures it looks like the bell is hard plastic, not rubber.

        Thanks

          It's a 14" cymbal and one zone is 3/4 of the pie, and 1/4 of pie is the other zone. The bell is hard plastic and is not strikable. The zones are just the bow and edge.

            Thanks for the info

            I suppose I'll just have to find one and fiddle with it before I decide then. But it does dissapoint me. The Bell on these things looked large enough, especially compared to the Roland V-cymbals I've fiddle with at Guitar Center.

            So I'm assuming if you want a bell sound (ie when using it as a ride) you have to hit the edge? It seems these would make better crash pads than Rides...

            Maybe by the time I have the money to actually buy an E-kit there will be a bell enabled one (a guy can hope, can't he?)

              Right now, Roland is the only one that has the ride cymbal with three zones. You also must have the TD-10 to operate with three zones. The TD-8 and TD-6 only support two zones per cymbal. The Zenbals definitely work better as crash cymbals.

              In regards to the ride cymbal, with my style of play, I only use the bow and bell anyways. I don't think I ever purposefully play the edge, but yes, the bell sound is programmed for the rim.

                      I wonder if you could glue a piezo under that hard plastic shell in the center of a Zenbal and run a cable to it. You could plug it in to a splitter in aux11/12 or the extra input split off the kick and assign a ride bell to it...........Hmmmmmm.............Need to run this by Tony Carlson!

                          Single zone Zenbals are not chokable. The dual zone ones are.

                            I just got word from Pintech that they are getting ready to put out a new Zenbal e-cymbal in Chinaboy form.

                              Sorry, no pic available yet. Just picture a ZB2 assembled backwards (which is how it happened by accident -- aren't all great products born this way?).
