NAMM News: Zildjian/Gen16 Acoustic/Electric Cymbal System

Imagine being able to drop the volume of cymbals to whisper quiet levels, but to still have all the tone, response, feel, and playability as a regular cymbal. That’s exactly what the new Gen16 Acoustic/Electric Cymbals deliver. Utilizing innovative perforated cymbals, with a perf pattern that maintains the integrity of the cymbal and a specific alloy formula, the new cymbals features all the feel, sound, and durability required, in a wide range of sizes and shapes, but with substantially less volume than regular cymbals.

The new cymbals are matched with an integrated dual-microphone pickup system and powerful DSP/tone modeling to create the sound of real cymbals, but at a volume level that’s manageable for churches, schools, small venues, rehearsal, and home/project studio recording.
