The next generation of reduced volume cymbals.
The Gen16 Acoustic / Electric Cymbal System represents a paradigm shift in cymbal design from Zildjian. Utilizing patented reduced volume acoustic cymbals, patented cymbal pickup and Digital Cymbal Processor “DCP” to tone shape the sound of each cymbal the user can apply an array of tone shapes to each real Zildjian Gen16 cymbal. Unlike cymbal triggers, Gen16 cymbals may be played with sticks, rods or mallets. They can be brushed and choked like traditional cymbals because they are real cymbals.
With knowledge gained from the original Gen16 cymbal, Zildjian craftsmen produced a Gen16 with a striking buffed bronze finish for a warmer tone than the original nickel-plated series. The Direct Source pickup captures the pure acoustic sound of the Gen16 Buffed Bronze cymbal while it eliminates feedback, crosstalk, and phasing associated with microphones, making them perfect for live performance and practice. The DCP provides tone shape presets, volume and R/L pan control for up to 5 cymbals while allowing the user to blend external edrum controller audio and or an auxiliary audio input. It also has a powerful headphone output for on stage monitoring or silent drumming when using headphones.
In addition to the electronic components, this set includes a pair of 13" hi-hats, one 16" crash and an 18" crash-ride.

Comments about Zildjian Gen16 Buffed Bronze 368DS Acoustic-Electric Cymbal Pack:
These are great. Sounds more real then the nickel version to my ears. Still need lots of time to tune them in just right with the tone changing software. Hi hats still have the best tone and very little tone change needs to happen. I suggest getting to know the software well and check out some forums for some preset files to start with. I used these the other week in a very small (under 100) church and they worked great without being too loud in the room. Still looking forward the getting the 20" ride and china cymbals.
