For everyone on here who can't figure out how to assemble these (which is understandable, because the directions are terrible):

Each clamp comes in two pieces, with a slight space between them. Take them and SQUEEZE THEM TOGETHER as hard as you can until you hear two loud pops, one on each end. Don't worry, you didn't break it. You're just putting it together. If you don't do this, the tightening nuts won't work, no matter how much you try to turn them. Now they don't slide down when you hit them! No tape necessary!

Now. Speaking as an actual drummer, these are the best accessory for Rock Band ever. Quieter and more responsive than the RB2 cymbals. As for the hi-hat clamp length issue, here's what I do. To set up like an actual drummer, you need to connect your crash and your hat on the LEFT side of the kit. Put the green crash on the tall tube. Connect it to the set with a short clamp. Now connect the hat to that tube with the long clamp, putting the hi hat on a short tube to the left of your snare. Now put your ride on the right side. There. May take some adjustment, but you're playing like an actual drummer. HAVE FUN!

I purchased this RB3 Cymbal kit to go along with my RB2 drum kit to use in Pro Mode in Rock Band 3. Out of the box these cymbals are WAY too sensitive to be even remotely fun to play. I was extremely frustrated at double-hit notes coming through constantly. I searched around online for an answer and found a partial solution. If you look for the "Penny" mod it will clear up a lot, but not all of the issues (although it will void your factory warranty). I added some extra foam padding above the actual sensor and now the cymbals work perfectly. So, as an out-of-the-box item these cymbals are pretty much useless for the precision needed for RB3. With a couple of simple mods, though, these puppies work great. Granted they should have worked great straight from the factory but they are so much fun now I'm willing to overlook the simple mods I had to do to make them work properly. A worthwhile investment if you don't mind doing a little work to get them to function properly. Hopefully Madcatz will clear this issue up with future releases of the cymbals.

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. Unfortunately, this makes it unusable (I guess it's hit or miss with people; mine was terrible). That said...I found a workaround online which involves unscrewing the ten screws that hold the sensor together on each pad (doing this voids your warranty though), and placing a penny / dime in between the spring and the screw door. Voila. I can play now....EXCEPT the green cymbal just *does not work*. It ALWAYS registers double hits no matter what I do. I have to try to fix this, I don't know what's wrong with it. My setup is using a dual kick pedal with a switch. I've read this may be causing the problem, I don't know...

Finally, the instructions...holy crap. Absolutely terrible. No "instructions", just a giant picture showing you random stuff. Not to mention I wasn't really clear on "which" pad to place where. The front of the box shows the wrong config.'s "yellow, blue, green" from the left.

I will say, for me, this was an absolute nightmare to setup. It took me probably two hours just to get this to 66%. I'm hoping I can find a solution for my green cymbal problem, but it's not *that* big of a deal since the crash isn't unique (or doesn't appear to be).

Final word...awesome. Just a nightmare to setup. Your mileage may vary.

Edit: Oh one last thing. The actual setup itself either...yeah, not very fun.

The Cymbals are great! I was reading the bad reviews before I bought it to make sure I wasn't going to be ripped off. so far the problems people have been having with them are simple mistakes and people who just don't follow the instructions.
I'll attach photos to help but these are ONLY compatible with RB2 drum sets and above. I have the RB2 wireless drum set so I was good to go. for anyone else, please upgrade before you buy. (TRUST me it's worth it!)

I'm suprised at the quality of the cymbals themselves I've had them for months and they've taken a beating, but they look just as good as when I pulled them out of the box.
during gameplay they're ultra responsive and it's good to be able to alternate between the drum or the cymbal for an accurate playing experience. I checked out the official cybal kit from Rock Band and was dismayed that the quality wasn't nearly as good as the Mad Catz version.
Switching to lefty mode is a snap and changing the cymbal head is quick and you're ready to go! VERY pleased with this set and hope you consider my review when purchasing it.
Final Note: This set DOES work with the Wii, Xbox, PS2 and PS3 drum sets.
