Roland CY15R 15" VCymbal Ride

No longer available at zZounds
Upgrade your electronic kit with the ultra-realistic Roland CY15R virtual ride cymbal pad, which features triple sensing for use as a ride or a crash cymbal.

The CY-15R V-Cymbal Ride takes the V-drums revolution several steps further by faithfully recreating the dimensions, movement, inertia, and timbre changes of an acoustic ride cymbal.

- 15 in. ride cymbal with realistic playing feel; designed with the same inertia (movement) as acoustic ride cymbal.

- Selectable dual-trigger system (edge/bow or bow/bell) allows use as ride cymbal or large crash cymbal.

- Simultaneous triple sensing (edge/bow/bell) possible using V-drums TD-10 sound module equipped with the TDW-1 Wave and System Expansion Board (TDW-1 with V-Cymbal Control).

- Compatible with all Roland TD-Series/SPD-Series sound modules

*Note that cymbal timbre changes are dependent on triple-sensing capabilities of V-drums TD-10 sound module expanded with the TDW-1 with V-Cymbal Control.

I figure it will last quite well, my other Roland cymbals in this range are 2 years old and have never had a problem.
The sound of this productis a dull "thunk". Well until you plug it into a drum module (TD-9 ver.2) in my case. The it "sounds" great, or rather it works great. In fact it works far better than the the CYR12 that came with the set.
It comes with two 1/4" TRS(stereo) cables to plug it into the module Roland anti spin washer thingy, felt and wing nut. The build quality see stone the same as the other upper end Roland pads. Some say they are over priced but as reliable as my other cymbals in this range are I think the price is just fine.
Ease of Use
Plug it in, set the module for the CYR-15 and go.
Seems like I'll be able to beat the crap out of it like the others I have.
As I mentioned before, worth the price. Do I wish it was less expensive? Sure, don't we all. At least it's not made in China at this price (made in Japan).
Manufacturer Support
No problems as of yet but always answered my product questions in a very timely manner.
The Wow Factor
It really is a he'll if a lot nicer to play on as a ride than the smaller sizes.
