The next generation of reduced volume cymbals, the Gen16 Buffed Bronze series.
Using the knowledge gained from the original Gen16 nickel-plated cymbal, the craftsmen at Zildjian used their knowledge and rich design history to improve the sound and performance of the Gen16 reduced volume acoustic cymbal. Additionally, the Buffed Bronze finish has a stunning, authentic appearance and produces a warmer tone than the original Gen16 nickel-plated cymbal.
The Gen16 Acoustic / Electric Cymbal System represents a paradigm shift in cymbal design from Zildjian. A patented cymbal pickup and Digital Cymbal Processor "DCP" enable you to shape the sound of each 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 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 buffed bronze 13 in. hi-hats and an 18 in. crash-ride.

Comments about Zildjian Gen16 Buffed Bronze 13/18 Acoustic-Electric Cymbal Pack:
I purchased these cymbals primarily because of my frustration with the sound and response of the stock Roland (TD20) rubber cymbals/triggers. I am very happy. They respond like real cymbals, because they are. The nuance of this partially open/closed, etc.., high hat is superior to that of the Rowland. In addition, you have several options of pitch, timbre, reverb & volume on the main controller. I took a chance, as they are not inexpensive, and some reviews that I had read prior to my purchase were mixed. The 18" is not the ideal ride cymbal, however, and I couldn't locate a different pairing on line of high hats & cymbals, without purchasing the entire package. Its a perfect hybrid.
