I bought these for my church band thinking it would make our Roland set look more like an acoustic set. They do look good from a distance. The problems are: I didn't realize they were single zone; The choke works very little and the triggering is inconsistant. The worst part is the "patented polymer" design. The stick noise is so loud you can hear it over the PA system. I just sounds like your hitting a 5 gallon plastic bucket. We're talking a large PA system with an audience of nearly 1000. Why Hart didn't put the gum rubber pad on these like the metal cymbals is a complete mystery.
this is a great electronic cymbal, at first it seemed it would be cheesy until I set it up on with the pearl hardware, the set blings and looks more like a real acoustic set than a electronic kit, I like that the cymbals come in different sizes so that when you program the sounds logically your mind goes to what you would normally play on an acoustic, choke works as expected, swells are impossible at least with the roland td-20 brain, but other than that this is a great trigger.
This product looks good but did not meet my expectations in any way. The feel is very plastic and the surface makes a distinctive plastic sound when struck. The mounting is difficult and the trigger is placed in such a way as to throw the balance off. The area you are not supposed to strike wants to swing down to the point closest to you. I also found the sensitivity unresponsive and not representative of the real thing. Very dissatisfied with this purchase. It's more like a toy than an instrument.
These cymbals have the most realistic look of any ecymbal on the market. The feel is a little "light" but the trigger responsiveness with a TD-8 is very good if Hart's setting recommendations are followed. I would also suggest using the Hart mounting spring with this cymbal to improve triggering. You do need to remember, this is not a REAL cymbal. No ecymbal responds like a real cymbal....this cymbal is great when used as a crash.
Once configured correctly, this thing not only looks real but plays real. When I first got mine, I was very impressed with its looks and thought it was really made of metal (I think there is a real metal covering to achieve the effect). However, my early enthusiasm was tainted when I plugged it into my Roland TD10, and experieinced extremely poor performance - it simpoly didn't trigger like my old pads. I could wail on it but hardly any sound came out. So I went on-line and found the preferred sensitivity settings for the TD10, made the changes and walla: it worked great! Moral of the story is, make sure you adjust it correctly in your brain. Its making the whole set feel like a real set, I'll probably add the other cymbals now to achieve the look of real cymbals with the benefits of electronic sets. The lifetime warranty sold me on these as well.
