OVERVIEW

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.

The Gen16 Buffed Bronze cymbal produces a richer and warmer tone then the original Gen16 nickel-plated cymbal. 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 five 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" Buffed Bronze Hi-Hats, one 16" Buffed Bronze Crash and an 18" Buffed Bronze Crash Ride.

    Comments about Zildjian Gen16 Buffed Bronze 368DS Acoustic-Electric Cymbal Pack:

    I am the bass player, and I've always stood next to the drums. The drummer has both acoustic and Roland electronic drums. We are now using triggers on the acoustic drums. The problem was that the Roland cymbals did not work well with the triggered acoustic drums because they produce no sound unless they are amplified. With the new Zildjian cymbals, we now have the BEST of both worlds. We can even play/record 'live' in the studio, with no bleed from the drum mics, and we are no longer restricted to the whims of the sound man when it comes to micing and mixing the blend of all the drums...and never any feedback.

    Comments about Zildjian Gen16 Buffed Bronze 368DS Acoustic-Electric Cymbal Pack:

    These are nice overall. I love the idea but the mounting hardware is cheap & the tomes are way too similar. For the $$$ they could be nicer and offer a more diverse array of cymbal sounds. The lights & settings are very cool!

      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.
