Default How do Harts Electronic Cymbals compare to Rolands TD-20K Cymbals?

They certainly look realistic, but do they have as many sensors in them as the Rolands and has anyone broken them before accidentally?

If you have to ask about breaking fake cymbals... you're playing entirely too hard lol

Besides.. they're just triggers.. just smack'em. You're never going to get the dynamics of real cymbals. For the price of some of the roland cymbals you'd be better off buying some real bronze and putting that with your ekit

I'm not asking for a sarcastic comment on my question. I don't know whether I want a Hart kit or a Roland TD-20K kit and I'm asking about the E-cymbals in the CYMBALS FORUM!!! The thing about real bronze cymbals is you can't turn them down in a apartment setting. I have a right to ask!

So in conclusion...shutup you moron.

He's not a moron. If you break a fake cymbal you hit entirely too hard.

I'm talking about the Hart cymbals that look real. They look like they'll break easily. I'm just asking a simple question.

Hey man chill...
Buy a Roland, it is much more quiet, more durable, and more dynamic. Hart Dynamics kit tend to trigger very bad, so go with the TD-20 set if you can afford it. IMO nothing beats it. Trust me don't go with anything other than Roland or Yamaha.

lol... love internet tough guys... Buy the Roland kit... you'll be as happy as you can be with an Ekit. Though for the price you could get yourself an awesome accoustic kit to play out and a used TD6V for practice.

Or if I wasn't such a moron I'd build myself an Ekit and just buy a roland module. =)

I've seen people break the Harts (by hitting them too hard/mounting them too tight); Hart recommends mounting them with Aquarian cymbal springs so they'll swing and absorb some of the impact.

I've used Hart's plastic and metal cymbals, and all the Roland rubber models.
I found they trigger about the same, sensitivity-wise, but the Harts are louder/clackier.
The metal Harts use a mouse-pad type material to deaden some of the impact, but it also tends to give you less sensitivity.

If you're worried about ambient noise created by E-cymbals, you're definitely going to want rubber triggers, not plastic or metal.
