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!
Sometimes they don't seem to register hits, but that's probably because I've played mine so much that I've beaten the feeling out of them. I'm actually on my second set-- I beat on the first set for 2 years, averaging at least 8 hours per week. So the only con is that they don't last forever.
These are about as real as it comes to drumming with out getting a drum set. After I mastered using these I finally decided to buy a real digital drum set, using the Midi Pro adapter you can plug in nearly any drum set and rock out on real equipment. Buy these cymbals if you want to get the real feel of drumming, be warned though, after you get good you are going to want to spend a lot more money on a digital drum set. Roland has some great options if you want to hook up real drums to your rock band experience.
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.
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. They lasted about 4 months before the wear signs started cracking. Eventually I pulled the rubber tops off and cut galvanized steel (heating ducts) into rings to hold them together. I glued the top rubber back on and they lasted several more months until the rubber was just peeling off from wear.
Eventually they stopped registering hits. They lasted a little over half a year and were fun while they lasted. Even though I played with a light touch, maybe I expected to much from a toy. The drums still work-to quiet them down, I had put 1/4" thick mouse pads on them when they were new.
I have not played for a long time now as my hands got to bad to play anymore. I'd still recommend them if anyone is still playing Rock Band anymore.
