Real Zildjian cymbals, remodeled for the electronic world.
Zildjian's groundbreaking new Acoustic/Electric technology in a true crash cymbal. The Gen16 cymbals combine low volume acoustic cymbals, dual-head mini microphone system and a controller with preset tone modeling that allows the user to experience an array of Zildjian tones and add effects to each AE cymbal. The Zildjian Gen16 Cymbals won Best of Show at the 2011 Winter NAMM show!
"The Acoustic Electric Cymbal is capable of creating a wide range of sounds, from that of a classic Zildjian cymbal to some very non-traditional sounds," explains Zildjian's VP of New Business & Product Development, John Roderick. "For drummers, it will have an inspirational impact akin to what the acoustic electric guitar has done for guitarists."

Comments about Zildjian Gen16 Acoustic-Electric Cymbal Crash & Pickup System:
For the sketics of electronic drums these are what has been needed to add to electronic drums. With what Roland and other companys are doing what they can to try and replicate acoustic drums these are a must have. I've been playing drums for 30 years and I have to say they are what my Roland TD-20X needed to finish off my electronic kit. As all drummeers know they will never replace an acoustic kit.
