I bought some of these cymbal pads to expand an electronic drum kit. For the money, these represent a great solution because they include a cymbal arm for mounting, as well as a cable. Having only had them for a few weeks I can't speak about durability. I use them with an Alesis DM10 module and they trigger without issue. Most issues people have with electronic pads seem to be down to module settings, anyway.
Comparing this with, for example, the Yamaha PCY65, the Millenium MPS-300 does feel a little less sturdy/durable. I am a metal drummer so I expect these to take a bit of punishment, but I guess if you are sensible with these things and don't just thrash them for the sake of it, they should last a decent length of time.
Reviewed against the price rather than the entire range of cymbal pads available.
I ordered this because I wanted a splash cymbal pad to go with my Roland CY-8s and didn't want to spend a fortune on pad and then hardware.
As usual Thomann came to the rescue.
This is a rubber slice of what appears to be a 12" or so pizza. Not terrible pretty or realistic, but it does snuggle into a compact kit easily without hitting stands and false triggering - and as a splash pad that's precisely what I wanted. A full 12" cymbal pad would have felt weird mimicking a 6" splash right?
There's no realistic rocking when hit - if you tighten it up anywhere near 'tight' it is like hitting a table mat on your kitchen table. So I have it loose, but not loose enough for it to come out of the crude but effective pin-in-a-hole anti-spin 'mechanism'.
It sends my TD3 brain a velocity sensitive signal, so I can play quiet or loud. It's not a very broad range (see my comments on the 11" MPS600 pad likewise) which may be a slight compatibility issue. It's certainly no CY-8, but then again they're several multiples more £££.
I've had no issues with the cymbal arm either but I found that the Millenium hardware requires some fiddling with spare bushes and washers if you are to put another cymbal brand on it.
All in all this is a great little product. If you want a crash there's a mono 12" circular cymbal which will doubtless be a better 'player' but as an accessory cymbal this ticks all the boxes. And it comes with a cable!!!
