Sweetwater Advice

  • Wayne Davis

    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!

    Beyond words!

    The gen 16 cymbals are unbelievable. They are the final component that makes up the most ultimate electronic drum kit to ever exist.along with the the throne thumper, pearl drum monitors and the eliminator hi hat- double pedal combo I just can't find the words to explain how incredible this is.thanks sweet water! Your company is over the top!

    Great first gig using the Gen 16 cymbals!!

    I used these cymbals for the first time at a gig this past weekend. I had just started using the Pearl TruTrac heads on my acoustic set and added these cymbals to finish off the set. They were great! Our mixer guy was really able to control the sound and volume of my entire drumset. Would recommend them to all.

    Be Ready for Replacements

    These 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 year. 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.
