The touch of bronze this cymbal cymbals clearly outperforms the plastic or rubber, any brand and any reference confused.
Although metal, it is silent as lined with a layer of plastic insulation on its underside (except the bell). However, the noise impact on the metal rods produces a more present than on a rubber model.
This cymbal is silent, but not totally.
In terms of connectivity, it connects to the stereo using 2: 1 Body / slice and 1 for the bell / slice (the model without choking the cymbal does not require a jack). It is therefore perfectly compatible with Roland modules. Modules for Yamaha, it will probably be a little trickier.
Strong side, I have no complaints so far (over a month). We will see in some time ...
Level value for money, in my opinion the top. It's cheaper than the CY-15R with a feel and look much more realistic!
