Roland CY-5 Hi-Hat/Splash Trigger Pad

V-Drummers will like the trigger response and wide zones of this cymbal pad. A nice price, and the reliable Roland name make it a great choice.
The cymbal pad (CY-5) features a 12-inch playing zone and swing movement for more drummer-friendly triggering. The pad also provides separate bow and edge triggering. The CY-5 can be also used as an additional cymbal pad, such as a splash, on V-Drum kits.

Best bang for the buck for a veteran drummer.
The trigger response is excellent for use a hi-hat. Much better than the standard PD-8! Closer feel to a real hi-hat than the PD-8.
Everything works as it should; including both trigger zones. The trigger zones are wide too! But you HAVE to buy a seperate mount to add to existing drums. The recommended mount for hi-hat (mdh-10u) needs to be a little longer. That's my ONLY complaint... The mount works fine but I like my hi-hats to sit a little higher than what's possible with the mdh-10u.
Ease of Use
No problems triggering at all. Simply works with no tweaking other than setting the trigger type in your drum module. (when you first hook it up)
It's Roland. That about says it all. Can't ask for any better.
For the money; can't go wrong. Affordable and high quality.
