Breakthrough Cymbal Technology!Play electronic drums? You need these cutting-edge cymbals! Crafted in partnership between Zildjian and Gen16, Gen 16 Acoustic Electric Cymbals are actually cymbals. That is, they're legitimate Zildjian cymbals that play at reduced volume - about 75% less volume, thanks to a unique perforated pattern. That means you can play them exactly how you play any other cymbal, using any stick, mallet, or technique. The full decay is there, and they respond to your every playing nuance.
A patented, discrete dual-pickup system in the cymbal mount picks up the sound of the cymbals. And, in tandem with a DSP engine, they amplify and tone shape the cymbal's output to get them at levels the whole audience can hear. Finally, you can make playing your electronic kit as fun as playing your acoustic kit. Many players will want to use them with their acoustic kits for reduced volume in pit work or worship bands. For discriminating drummers, there's no choice but the Gen 16 Acoustic Electric Cymbal Box Set.

The Zildjian Gen16 cymbals are perfect in so many scenarios. You'll want a set for your home, church, and any live sound situation that needs minimal volume. Whether you play electronic or acoustic drums, quiet cymbals that feel and sound natural are priceless! I've finally stopped complaining about the "feel" of electronic cymbals and the ear-piercing volume of acoustic cymbals!
Be Ready for Replacements
by Aaron Bump from Wapakoneta, OHThese cymbals are great. They are way better feeling and playing than most electronic cymbals. Are drummers at our church love them. The only problem is, we've been through three sets of them in 1 yea... read more [+]r. They keep cracking and breaking and need a major design upgrade. I would expect better long-term quality from Zildjian. Sweetwater has been wonderful and has replaced our broken ones quickly and with understanding. These are played about 5 1/2-6 hours a week at our church. They should hold up better than they do.

As soon as a crack gets started look out. We've even had chunks fly off in the middle of songs. I hope Zildjian keeps the concept, but finds a way to make them stronger. close [-]
