Summary: Expansion pack to play RB in Pro-Mode. You can also use them in the other RB games-hit same color drum or cymbal. Makes the other RB games more fun too. Setup is easy though the clamps could have been done better as they do slide sometimes. I had no problems with unregistered or double hits etc. They worked fine for me. I don't know what the life time is considered to be and I play with a light touch as I have problems with my hands.
Summary: The cymbals works like a charm until we've played for a set. The bracket holding the green and yellow cymbal in place begins to fall after so much pressure has been applied from playing. The weight of the 2 cymbals appears to be too heavy.
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.
Summary: I loved the cymbals because they complete the set for a real drum set. The inconvenience is that the brackets to secure them in place are very weak. I accidentally placed them the wrong way (upside down) at the beginning and called to ask what was I doing wrong and the customer support was attentive but NOT helpful at all, they told me to take a picture and send it, and they never contacted me by any means.
Summary: This cymbal kit adds a TON of replay value to the Rock Band drum set. You'll find yourself revisiting even the songs you skip over just for the fact that they're too easy. While they do make the game a ton more fun, they have a few problems that keep it from being a five star product. First off, the rubber padding on the cymbals began to separate on me after about a month. This exposed the plastic and subsequently led to some cracks in two of the three cymbals.
Summary: The only reason to purchase this game is to get the additional content. The song list itself probably only has 5 or so songs you want anyway which means you paid over $5 per song to get them. The fact that once RB3 came out there is no new downloadable content offered for RB2 anymore. That's how they get you to buy the new one.
Summary: I also have the cymbals they made for RB2 drums ( ), but I only got the two pack. Once I got RB3 and they introduced PRO drums I wanted to get the third cymbal. I remember when I got my RB2 cymbals, there were some people who got some with a very sensitive trigger that would end up registering double hits. Mine were not of that ilk and worked perfectly. Unfortunately, with my RB3 PRO Cymbals, I do have one that seems to double trigger.
Summary: First off, I'm not a real drummer, I just play one at home. When I heard there was going to be an actual "Pro" mode in Rock Band 3, I bought this in a heartbeat. First the good news. These are awesome. Just awesome. If you play drums on Expert, you need these. It's like playing a whole new game. It's just that... They didn't work out of the box. They are *very*, *very* sensitive for me.
