Summary: The package says it's compatible with Rock Band, Rockband II and III but this isn't the case. The original rock band does not have the jacks to plug the cymbal into. It is difficult if not impossible to ascertain before purchase.
Summary: This is a nice, fun addition to the rock band drum set, though it adds no functionality in any way. The cymbals are the same color as the drum pads, so you can hit either of the same color and still score the hit. Recently, I noticed one of the cymbals won't stay up. The mast slides down on the clamp no matter how tight I clamp it. I'll try adding a sleeve, like a piece of paper between the mast and clamp to see if that resolves it.
Summary: You must buy the drums in order to use this kit. Without the correct drum set, this product is worthless, never mind the reviews that tell you how you CAN assemble this difficult thing after all.
Summary: I gave this 5 stars because of the rigidity of the cymbals. I play pretty hard on them and they haven't failed me yet. One thing everyone should be aware of is how to install. For the first few days I couldn't get them to stay clamped, but later realized I didn't have them snapped into place ( should be no gap in between the clamp). I'd recommend this to anyone who wants to add a realistic feel to the game.
Good value. Problems are in-game, not equipment. I recommend.

Summary: Easy setup......works properly....makes playing RB more realistic Note for RB drummers: On a real kit the crash is to the left of the ride. The way RB is charted, the crash and the ride are backwards, so one has to either set up their kit with the crash and ride swapped to sync up with the chart, or have the kit set up properly, and have the green and blue cymbal markers on the chart backwards.
Summary: I gave it a 5, but I never actually got a chance to use them. I still have my Rock Band 1 drum kit and I couldn't even add these to it. I don't know if it says that somewhere on the description, but I didn't see it. You need a Rock Band 2 or 3 drum kit to add these. They look cool on my floor though. Like new-age cyber vinyl.
Summary: I already had cymbals with my Rock Band 3 kit, but they wore out over time, and even cracked in the plastic. You have to be careful and gentle with them if you do not want them to break. I purchased these as a replacement to my old, broken ones, and they worked out great.
Summary: One of the cymbals broke after just two weeks of playing.I will contact Mad Catz and update the review once I get a replacement. UPDATE: It's been 4 days since I entered a ticket with Mad Catz. I got an automated message. Unfortunately, the link to view the ticket does not work. And their support site is not allowing me to login at this time. I am emailing them again.
