The new Roland CY-18DR V-Cymbal Digital Ride is designed to accompany the new Roland TD-50 sound module, and is key to the Japanese giant's revolutionary digital drum technology. The nuances in playing feel and responsiveness has never been captured so perfectly in a trigger pad quite like this.

Every drummer is different. They have a different approach to their kit, with personal inflections placed into every stroke and hit, and their personality shines through in their playing style. Roland has worked tirelessly for years to create digital drum hardware that responds to the subtleties of drummer's technique, and the new CY-18DR captures this perfectly. The acoustic-style 18-inch diameter pad is equipped with authentic swing motion, affording an instantly familiar feel for those used to performing on an acoustic kit.

Roland's latest proprietary technology gives the CY-18DR a high-resolution, multi-sensor system within the pad, which allows it to capture with unparalleled accuracy, the most minute of touches from hard to soft, in every position from edge to bell.

Whether you're a big hitter, or a drummer who likes to explore a wide dynamic range, the CY-18DR digital ride supports advanced techniques such as legato, bell strokes, and mutes with the touch of a finger with integrated natural decay, just as you would with an acoustic ride cymbal. To enjoy the optimum performance from this ground-breaking cymbal, it must be paired with the processing power and digital trigger inputs of Roland’s new flagship TD-50 sound module.
