a good and pleasing addition to my kit but was hoping for a little more
I bought the PCY-90AT cymbal to add an extra crash cymbal to my Yamaha DTX450K drum kit. The item arrived safely and fitted easily on to the frame of my DTX kit, plugging in to the other port through the bass drum. The cymbal does produce a slightly different sound/timbre with each pre-programmed setting, however, it does sound a little quieter in comparison to the other pads on the kit but this isn't really an issue. Also, the PCY-90AT cymbal does sound louder if hit harder, although only offers one sound, no change in tone like the DTX450 ride cymbal offers dispite where it is hit. Unfortunately, the PCY-90AT does not have a 'choke' function. Having said this, it does work well with the other DTX450 crash cymbal to offer an additional sound to the kit and does come in very useful. Overall, I am pleased with the addition of the PCY-90AT to my kit, it does offer further sound and percussive possibilities to my playing.
I ordered this as an addition to my electric kit and my experience has been a bit hit and miss.
The quality of the product is fine, I have two of these and they've taken quite a beating so far without breaking.
That being said, I would not purchase one of these to use as a main cymbal in your kit.
The fact that this is an entry level offering becomes obvious when playing it. You can't treat it as naturally as you can with some of the more expensive offerings. Light hits or hits in rapid succession are pretty inconsistent, so I wouldn't recommend using this as a hi-hat or ride cymbal.
However, it's a fair choice if you're just looking to use it as a splash or other effect cymbal, since you don't typically need as much freedom with cymbals like those.
Overall, unless you're planning on using this as just an effect cymbal, I'd recommend splashing out a little more on a PCY135, it's a bigger cymbal that will, if the module allows, grant you much more freedom in the form of a more sensitive pad and 3 distinct pad zones instead of the single zone found on this pad.
