Best Upgrade from Gen16

I replaced all my Gen16 AE microphone pickup with this new Direct Source Pickup upgrade & I was very satisfied with the result, no feedback, very sensitive, looks great with the lights & most of all sounds great with the new download upgrade to your module from Gen16 website.

great pickup

Worth the extra money for these pickups. No, none, zero bleeding of other instruments, like you get with the none direct pickups. Total sound, volume and tone control. Have replaced all my cymbals with the gen 16s with direct pickups. Then there is the lights that sync up with each other. FANTASTIC PRODUCT THANKS ZILJIAN

We like them!

The Direct Source Pick-ups are working great for our Gen 16 cymbals. They are solid and they sound good. You do however need to completely reset your eq in order to make them sound good. After sometime dedicated to tuning them in, we have made them sound great! I would recommend them for the Gen 16 cymbals.
