The Roland CY-18DR is an 18" digital electronic ride cymbal. The CY-18DR is generally considered the best electronic ride cymbal made right now. Imagine a large electronic ride cymbal that picks up literally everything you do as a drummer. Imagine it being quiet enough to practice with and able to sound like anything while hooked up to the Roland TD-50 or TD-27 module. Imagine the ability to record drums really easily via USB and making a ton of money for playing drums. Its all possible with this ride cymbal. One of the coolest new features lets you mute the sound with a finger-touch by simply touching the bell or bow of the cymbal with a finger or palm, you can mute the cymbal sound (with natural carryover decay ) just as you would with an acoustic ride cymbal. To use CY-18DR, it must be paired with the processing power and digital trigger inputs of Roland’s TD-50 or TD-27 drum modules.
