OVERVIEW

A new fusion of real cymbals and modeling technology from the most respected name in cymbals!

This 12" splash cymbal is from Zildjian's new Gen16 cymbal series, created from a custom sheet metal alloy that combines with a complex network of holes in the cymbal for true cymbal feel and sound, with about an 80% reduction in volume. The cymbal sound is then captured with the included mic pickup and then processed and modeled with sounds and effects from the Gen16 Cymbal Controller (Sold separately H72378).

"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 Splash & Pickup System:

YOU WILL BE DECEIVED BY THE TONE OF THIS SPLASH CYMBAL. IT DOES NOT GIVE YOU THE TRUE SOUND OF A SPLASH THAT YOU ARE PROBABLY ACCUSTOM TO HEARING, FROM THE PRESET TONES FROM THE DCP. HOPEFULLY WHEN USING THE ACCESS TOOLS YOU'LL BE ABLE TO SHAPE SOME BETTER TONES. OVERALL SOME TONES YOU CAN WORK WITH, THEY LOOK AND THE FEEL IS GREAT. WILL BE ORDERING A CHINA OR CRASH CYMBAL IN THE NEAR FUTURE.

Excellent addition to Gen16 AE Line

        Comments about Zildjian Gen16 Acoustic-Electric Cymbal Splash & Pickup System:

        The Gen16 AEs are a definite game-changer for electronic drummers. Be sure to learn how to make your own presets in the DCP software; it's a powerful shaping tool. I didn't find any factory presets that sounded "splashy" to me, but it was easy to dial in a bright, quick fusion splash sound and a dark, breathy "K" splash sound as well. A GREAT product line, and it'll be even better with the upcoming release of contact pickups.

        Must have

        Comments about Zildjian Gen16 Acoustic-Electric Cymbal Splash & Pickup System:

        Good addition to any electronic kit. At last a real fealing cymbal. Since the pickup is a mic you will get some feedback in small rooms at high volumes.
        Another good product from Zildjian
        Runs about the same price as Zildjian A's
