Default Small Cymbal Pads

I'm after a couple of small cymbal pads to use as effects cymbals ... splash / small china etc, if anybody has any relatively budget recommendations that will last would be appreciated.

Depends what you define as "small", really. And your budget. And, what module are your using? :)

Size I'd say anything between 6" and 10", the module's a TD30 .... budget wise having just bought this I'm broke :-) so really as cheap as possible BUT I'm also aware of buy cheap buy twice.

They'll only ever be crashed so don't need a ton of sensitivity ... really something that just acts as a trigger and won't break in 5 mins .... I've an old DT Xpress II and the cymbals on that were for ever failing so trying to avoid the same.

What "were" you doing the DTX cymbals? Been using those for a couple of decades and haven't busted one! (which models are you breaking?)

If you're happy with single TS triggers, pick up and cannibalise an old Ion kit like this one on eBay - mine cost just UKú30 from a local seller. The smaller-than-average pads are hard on the hands but OK for the occasional effect. You can mount at least two, maybe three pads on a single rod if you wish.

Roland modules only work with Roland pads. If you're looking for a small cymbal you can get the Roland CY5

Just for your info that's totally incorrect ... I have one Yamaha pad I've plugged into it recently ... granted there may be some that are compatible with one model but not another but overall I believe they're just triggers.

That said I had been looking at the CY5 but also at other more budget options as well.

Zaxx .... not a bad idea, have been going through fleabay :-)

Does anybody happen to know if they have to be dual zone to have a choke and if you can choke the CY5 or if you have to step up to the CY8.

Choke is achieved using a switch. So any pad that's piezo/switch should choke. CY5 should choke see the manual: https://static.roland.com/assets/media/pdf/CY-5_OM.pdf
