Zildjian's giant leap into electronic cymbal technology.
A full set of Zildjian's groundbreaking new Acoustic/Electric cymbals, including 13" hi-hats, 16" crash cymbal, and 18" crash/ride cymbal, 3 dual condenser mics, the controller/module, and all cables and necessary cymbal mounting hardware. Zildjian Gen16 Cymbals won Best of Show at the 2011 Winter NAMM show!
Zildjian Gen16 AE cymbals combines low volume acoustic cymbals, an innovative new dual-head mini microphone system, and a controller/mixer with preset tone modeling that allows the user to experience an array of Zildjian tones and/or add effects to each real AE cymbal. The cymbals come in a full range of models including rides, hi-hats, and Chinas.
"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."
