Customer Reviews of Universal Rock Band 3 Pro-Cymbals Expansion Kit
Great addition to RB311/15/2010
I selected the standard shipping (5-7 days) from Buy.com and they were actually here in 2 days, arrived the same day RB3 was released so was great to have them so timely. I had one problem that one of the symbols double registered with every hit, but I contacted Mad Catz support through email and they are going to send me a replacment so great support. They add realism and complexity to the drumming and are challenging and a lot of fun, definitely a must have.
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!
