The Yamaha PCY135 13" electronic cymbal pad consists of three separate zones: an edge zone; a bow zone; and a cup zone. This enables the pad to recreate the unique sounds that are produced when you hit different parts of a cymbal.

The pad responds accurately to subtle differences in dynamics during performance and can faithfully reproduce delicate cymbal playing, powerful hits, and choking

Cymbal swinging and stick bouncing are also reproduced realistically, so that the pad feels natural even for drummers who normally perform on acoustic drums. Using this pad for cymbal performance training will also bring excellent results.

  • Not a Roland, but still solid.

    As reviewed by MIKE HEALY on 12/6/2011

    I've been using Roland cymbal pads for a while now, and while I love the way they play, I needed an auxiliary hi-hat pad for (gasp!) gaming, and I didn't want to spend enough for a [used] CY-12 or -14. I had read about Yamaha's, but never tried one. After a week of solid wailing away at this one, I'm pleased to say that it works well: it triggers flawlessly and seems to be holding up well to the punishment that I dish out. A note: I do not use the 3-way triggering abilities of this pad, so I can't comment on how well they work. I do know that all three zones do trigger. I don't really like Yamaha's rotation stopper (compared to the Roland solution, anyway), but it works. If you enjoy the way Roland pads swing a bit when struck, know that the Yamaha doesn't. Appearance is a little on the delicate side, and the three zones are marked with differing patterns in the rubber coating. Stick noise is a bit sharper than what I get from the Rolands, but it only seems to annoy my wife (the Rolands do that, too). I have my PCY-135 plugged into the Aux input of a TD-9 module, and found that calling it a CY-5 seems to work best. Had to crank up the sensitivity a bit in order to get the edge/cup to trigger accurately. Overall, I'm very happy with this pad.

  • It's O.K.

    As reviewed by ED DETRICH on 1/19/2012

    The Yamaha E-Cymbal is very durable. The problem I have is you can't get a true sizzle sound, when you roll on these cymbals. What I did is real Sabian cymbals in place of the Yamaha cymbals, and miked them. With the Dtx kit & real cymbals, it just sounds and feels better. Maybe in another 5-10 yrs. E-Cymbals will sound better.
