The Zildjian Gen16 Buffed Bronze cymbals are the latest evolution of Zildjian's groundbreaking Gen 16 concept. These new cymbals deliver a richer, warmer and more authentic natural acoustic tone, and look absolutely stunning in the process.
Drumming Realism with Lower Volumes
Make no mistake - Gen16 cymbals are real, acoustic, natural sounding and responding Zildjian cymbals. Gen16 cymbals feature a multitude of holes that reduce sound pressure levels by up to 70 percent (when compared to a standard cymbal). The result is a much lower volume that doesn't lose the rich authentic tone you would expect from a Zildjian cymbal. This makes Gen16 cymbals the perfect practice cymbal for environments where quieter playing is required.
They can be used with hybrid kits to develop new textures, or electronic kits to capture a real cymbal feel, as opposed to using rubber pads.
By fitting Zildjian’s specially designed Direct Source Pickups and Digital Cymbal Processor, the cymbal can even be passed through a dedicated EQ. With 5 channels and 19 dedicated EQ presets on each, you can get the perfect sound from your cymbals.
