Yamaha top class cymbal
The E-Drum Cymbal Pads PCY 135, PCY 155 and PCY 175 are the upper class of electronic cymbals by Yamaha. In sizes of 13", 15" and 17" you can integrate them as a classic crash and ride cymbal in your E-Drum. On modules from Yamaha, 2Box and with the Pearl Mimic you can operate each of the cymbals as a 3-zone cymbal. They deliver faithful signals of your playing on Edge, Bow and Cup to these modules. As 2-zone cymbals with Edge and Bow, they are perfect for use as crash cymbals on most other modules. A 13" hi-hat rounds off the sophisticated cymbal family.
The size of this cymbal with 17quot; corresponds with the diameter of a small acoustic ride cymbal and its compactness makes it an ideal e-cymbal. As an acoustic drummer - and that's how most of us started out - this "real" size suits you to the maximum when it comes to playing technique. You can play your figures and beats just like on a conventional acoustic ride cymbal.
3-zone ride cymbal with high dynamic range on Edge, Bow and Cup
The cymbal works as a 3-zone ride cymbal with Edge, Bow and Cup with all modules of Yamaha, with the modules from 2Box and the Mimic by Pearl. There it provides differentiated signals of your performance in a remarkable dynamic range.
Large 2-zone crash cymbal for all sound modules
With the above mentioned devices and almost all other modules on the market you can also play the cymbal as a 2-zone chrash. With clean trigger signals from your playing on Edge and Bow, it passes on your individual playing style true to life. Of course, you can also assign splash, china or FX signals to the e-cymbal. There are no limits to your creativity.
Natural playing feel
The cymbal of the PCY series can be played on the entire surface, on the edge and on the cup and you can choke it with your hand. The cymbal responds sensitively to your hits and strokes and its attack dynamics are breathtakingly real. The cup and bow respond palpably direct when played with the tip of the stick, while the stroke of the cymbal's edge with the shaft of the stick makes the cymbal dive away like a real cymbal. The rotation stopper keeps the e-cymbal's alignment always at the ideal strike angle for your playing.

Not perfect for 2box modulrd
It looks nice and feels nice but for 2box drumit5mk2 its not perfect, this goes for other yamaha cymbals as well. Its not 360 playable, the bell zone is the worse, it often gives you the edge as well when you hit the bell, very annoying, at youtube the channel 'edrum workshop' gives a good demonstration of this, yes it works as a 3 zone cymbal, but the working playing area is quite small and it requires you hit the bell very accurately to few centimeters of space to the bell so it wont trigger the edge zone. Probably very good for yamaha modules
