Electronic cymbals have come a long way since the 1970s. Thanks to the many breakthroughs in digital technology, electronic cymbals now have the ability to replicate the feel and sound of a regular acoustic cymbal. Of course, there are other upsides to owning electronic drum cymbals as well, and every day, more professional drummers are beginning to realize it. So what are some benefits of playing electronic cymbals? For one, they give you the ability to set a preferred volume of what you're hitting, which is a huge plus to drummers who live in residential areas, and also for players who like to warm up backstage before a set. Two other advantages is that your drumsticks will last longer when you practice with electronic cymbals since you don't have to hit them as hard to get a desired sound, and they also require less maintenance than regular acoustic cymbals.
By taking a look through this catalog, you'll notice that there are many top-rated items and best sellers. For example, check out the Roland CY-15R V-Cymbal ride. Featuring a wide tonal range and an acoustic cymbal-like response, this 15" electronic ride contains a selectable dual-trigger system that allows it to function as both a ride and a crash. Now, if a hi-hat is what you're after, then go with the Alesis Pro X. This dual-cymbal hi-hat controller brings a natural feel to Alesis DM10 and DM8 drummers. In fact, the Pro X hi-hat was precisely calibrated for those two e-drum sets, and will certainly expand the expressive capabilities of what each kit can do for your performance. Whether you're an experienced player who's looking for an alternative to an acoustic set, or an amateur who needs to keep their practices quiet, you'll be amazed at what today's electronic cymbals can do for your performance.
