The Roland CY-18DR is for drummers who want to stamp personality on their playing. With an acoustic-style 18-inch diameter and authentic swing motion, this digital V-Cymbal is instantly familiar and highly playable. A high-resolution, multi-sensor system detects every nuance of your hard and soft touches, in every position from edge to bell. This information is then communicated via a high-speed digital trigger connection to the TD-50 module.

The CY-18DR gives expressive drummers more dynamics than ever before, supporting techniques from cymbal legato to soft bell strokes and even cymbal chokes. And by simply touching the bell or bow of the cymbal with a finger or palm, you can mute the sound (with natural carryover decay) just as you would with an acoustic ride cymbal. In combination with the TD-50 modules advanced engine, the CY-18DR delivers ultra-realistic performance never before achieved with any cymbal pad.


• High-resolution sound triggering designed for use with the flagship Roland TD-50 sound module
• Captures nuances of hard and soft playing on the bow, bell, and edge areas
• Wide-range touch sensors allow cymbal muting with a finger touch
• Acoustic-style 18-inch diameter for comfort, playability, and familiar presence

Closest StoreLethbridge, Alberta
Purchased this ride for me TD-50 module. Has a nice look and beautiful response but is not very durable for a heavy hitting drummer. Already having sensor issues on the main playing area. Have tried numerous setting changes within the module to prevent the edge from triggering when hitting the ride surface. Will be sending back to Roland for repair. This has happened all within 6 months of buying it new.
