Whether planning to play real drums or pro drums in Rock Band 3, these are the necessity to your Rock Band drum kit! Compared to the previous build, they're as quiet as a Rock Band 2 drum pad: No loud plastic impacts and vibrations. With the way the sensors are built in these cymbals, they react more accordingly to your fills, making rolls and swells in-game passable without losing a note streak. Sometimes, though, they may be too sensitive, registering multiple hits after a hard shot or heavy vibrations. I got one of my cymbals in this condition, and had to modify it in order to soften it up. It takes time to develop a sticking posture when either upgrading or playing cymbals for the first time, especially because of their 10° downward angle. I'm very happy with my product, and am very grateful of Mad Catz to see how well they're improving licensed products, especially for Rock Band!
