Sometimes you get amazed!

About three years ago I made some research and found a way to convert a 3 Zone Roland cymbal to Yamaha 3 zone style. Nothing advanced – but it works extremely well. The feature which the cable adds is that you are able to use one input instead of two inputs for handling 3 zones. This is extremely useful when dealing with modules like Mimic Pro, eDrumin or if you just want to use a Roland cymbal with a Yamaha module.

The conversion cable for Roland & ATV’s 3 zone e-cymbals with dual outputs for bow/edge + bow/bell (like CY-12CR, CY-13R, CY-15R and most ATV Cymbals like aD-C18) to drum modules that can receive 3 zone signal on a single TRS input.

As said, the cable works with drum modules like Yamaha, Pearl Mimic Pro, MegaDrum and eDrumin which supports Yamaha 3 zone input connections thru one stereo cable – TRS.

A link to the product:

Anyhow, some weeks ago, one of my customers, Luke at The edrum Workshop made a video review about this cable. (Hey…a video about a cable!!!) – and we need of course highlight this at Zourman Drums and send our best thanks to Luke!

Finally, I just want to take the opportunity to wish you all a Merry Christmas!

Roland 3 Zone Ride Conversion Module for 2box



Posted on 3 Comments


To extend the Zourman Drums offerings, we are now adding a new conversion module which will enable 2box owners to use existing non-2box 3 zone rides – particularly the popular Roland range.
Our conversion modules combines the best of both worlds: the Roland CY-13R and CY-15R rides together with the 2box DrumIt Five module. The Zourman 3 zone ride conversion module replaces a standard 2box ride cymbal with your favourite Roland 3 zone ride. The solution is 100% plug and play (only 2box settings needed to be changed) and handles both outputs (bow/edge & bow/bell) on the Roland CY-13R and CY-15R through the two input connectors found on the conversion module. The Zourman Drums electronics and intelligence combine the three+choke trigger signals and deliver the output into a standard 2box 3 zone input (single stereo jack).
