Roland CY-8 12″ Dual-Zone Electronic Cymbal (Used)
The Roland CY-8 electronic cymbal is a great way to add a cymbal to a Roland electronic drum set if you are on a budget. This cymbal is in full working order and has come from a good home so we are confident it has a decent life-span ahead of it! Obviously as a used product, it has the usual expected marks on the playing surface and some scuffing on the bottom side where it has rubbed against the Roland tilter. However, this is only cosmetic and does not affect its operation.
The Roland CY-8 is a 12″ diameter cymbal with an authentic swinging motion and superb response. It has separate bow/edge triggering zones and can be ‘choked’ like a real cymbal.
This cymbal is for Roland modules only, though it may trigger with other brands of module. If you do not own a Roland module and are not confident with experimenting with your module’s advanced settings, then we do not advise you purchasing this cymbal.
This cymbal is sold without a lead and you will need a stereo Jack-plug lead to take advantage of its triggering capabilities. You will also need a Roland CYM-10 set to mount the cymbal on your cymbal-arm which we do not sell because we are not a Roland dealer!
We don’t see much used Roland gear in the shop so don’t dither about!
