The Pro-Cymbals kit comes with crash, ride, and hi-hat cymbals, which feature 10-degree strike angle support and can detect soft and hard hits. Connect them to the new Rock Band 4 drumkit (the only drumkit the new cymbal pack will work with) and you'll get to try the game's Pro Mode.

This adds even more challenge to drumming experience. You'll probably only want to do this if you've already mastered the game on Expert...or if your name is Mike Portnoy.

You can preorder the Pro-Cymbals kit from Mad Catz's website today for $50. The kit ships this holiday. For a closer look, click through the images in the gallery below.
