Gen16 13" Hi-hat Pair in Buffed Bronze!

Play electronic drums? Sweetwater's got your cymbals! Crafted in partnership with Avedis Zildjian, Gen16 acoustic-electric cymbals are real cymbals that play at reduced volume - up to 70% 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. Gen16 Buffed Bronze cymbals give you a warmer, richer sound than Gen16's original nickel plated cymbals. Get real cymbal feel and sound at reduced volume, with Gen16 Buffed Bronze.

Cutting-edge technology and traditional Zildjian craftsmanship

In an acoustic-electric setup, the optional discrete pickup system in the cymbal mount picks up the sound of the cymbals and sends it to the DSP engine, where your cymbal output is amplified and tone-shaped to perfection. 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 who use electronic drums, Gen16 is the obvious choice.

Awesome for Low Volume Situations

I play in the praise band in my congregation and went to an acoustic/electronic setup for the sake of volume and my hearing issues. I've never been crazy about e-cymbals with the exception of Roland's top of the line ones, which are prohibitively expensive. I had the cheaper Roland series and had a lot of problems with the hi-hat. I went through two pedals that would leave the hi-hat sticking wide open. There were also latency issues that made it hard to be as expressive on the 'hats as I would have liked to have been. After the second pedal died, I decided that I had had enough.When Zildjian came out with their low volume series I considered them but found them to be too quiet.The Gen16 Buffed Bronze series wound up being the answer. They provide sufficient volume to blend with the rest of band and vocals while still being quiet enough not to overpower anything else. The tonality and sound quality is very good for what they are. The hi-hats are especially nice, the ride and crash coming in a close second. Both the crash and crash/ride have a slightly trashy but musical crash sound with a relatively short decay, and the ride has good definition on both bell and bow with an unobtrusive wash that gives it body. The compromises made to keep the volume low results in a cymbal that may not sound like a K or a Paiste Signature, but has a very useable voice of its own. I'm extremely happy with them and wouldn't hesitate to recommend them to someone looking for low volume along with a surprisingly good sound. Sound, of course, is a very subjective thing but in my case the Gen16's are fully qualified to do what I need them to do. These definitely are more versatile than the original Gen16 series, btw.Sweetwater's service was stellar as always and prices were very competitive.
