D14 is Triggera's china cymbal from the Drumadeus series, made of steel and rubber.
Unlike all-metal cymbals, it is extremely quiet, thanks to a special mixture of natural and synthetic rubber. And unlike plastic cymbals, it provides a natural feel with superb triggering and sensitivity.
All in all, it gives the best of both worlds - low stick noise with great sensitivity and high dynamic range, along with "acoustic cymbal" natural feel, heaviness and swinging.

I just received 2x 14" China Cymbals from Triggera. I ordered a couple of Kriggs early in the year and was very happy with them on my brand new DW9000 pedal. I've been anxiously awaiting the cymbals since I read about them on the web-site. I'm slowly building a really nice kit. I've got some custom shells in the queue for Dave to build for me over at Diamond (I cannot wait). Once they arrive I'll buy a TD-30 brain. For now, I"m using an Octopad for sounds. Anyway, back to the D14s....
My first impression is very positive. I'm in Canada and they still arrived from Europe in under 2 weeks. They look and swing really nicely. Just like the demo video, it triggers evenly across the bow. My sensitivity was set low at first but once that was configured, both cymbals perform great. I honestly haven't played many acoustic kits but they feel great. They are a little quieter than my Roland CY-15R-MG because of the rubber cover. They are single zone but for $100 (75 Euro) each, I really can't complain. I think I'd rather use these to fill out my new kit than BT-1s. Keep up the good work, Triggera. I'll be buying the 9" splash and the cowbell when they are released.
