        A set of Zildjian's groundbreaking low-volume Gen16 cymbals with all accessories.

        The Zildjian Gen 16 AE Cymbal System is a paradigm shift in cymbal design. Features include patented, low volume acoustic cymbals, a radically new “pickup” that utilizes a patentpending and dual-headed mini microphone design. The Digital Cymbal Processor (DCP) sound module allows you to shape tones while enabling audio mixing. Each kit also includes a dampening pin for each cymbal. The pin can be placed in any hole to reduce overtone, shorten decay and lower the fundamental pitch of the cymbal.

        Features

        • 13" AE hi-hats w/pickup
        • 14" AE crash w/pickup

          Comments about Zildjian Gen16 Acoustic-Electric Cymbal Box Set:

          I said I set ( Band 5 Freq to 16,000Hz Q to 5.0 Gain to -360dB )
          I now use a ( Q of 1.0 ) for presets 11-10 this works better at higher volumes in rooms with lots of acoustic reflections.
          The original presets in 1-10 are set to a Q of 3.5 for recording and better environments

          The cymbals come with a dampening pin. I like using the first hole it fits in on the bell for the ride and crash

          I also said "I'm very happy with these cymbals" now I'm loving them
          Need more treble to cut threw the band push a button what less and fuller sound to blend in with band push a button.

          The sticks you use make a huge difference in the sound.
          Wood sticks nylon tip or not create more stick resonance and stick noise.
          Synthetics such as Ahead & Aquarian X-10 give you more cymbal sound and less stick noise.
          Ahead has a full smooth sound less ping Aquarian X-10 more ping and treble.

          Comments about Zildjian Gen16 Acoustic-Electric Cymbal Box Set:

          I'm very happy with these cymbals and the ability to change there sound but
          For this work properly you need to down load the { DCP Access tool } free from Zildjian.
          This will let you upgrade the DCP with the New Firmware and Presets.
          All the new presets have the Input Gain set to Max. +90dB this will cause Extreme Feedback. ( Set the Gain to -0.1dB ) for all presets now it is manageable like a normal microphone.

          Note: presets 1-10 are for the twin microphone pickups, presets 11-20 are for the new direct source pickups.

          I copied 1-10 into 11-20 and changed ( Band 5 Freq to 16,000Hz Q to 5.0 Gain to -360dB ) for all presets in 11-20
          This eliminates excess high-end and high-end feedback I think it makes the cymbals sound fuller and more pleasing. You still have the originals in 1-10

          The new direct source pickup is not a Microphone and has no issues of feedback but cost a lot more for me being a drummer for years and working with microphones it's not worth the price difference.
          The Access Tool also lets you create your own sounds I plan to experiment with this later.
