Gen16 AE Cymbals- In stores now!
This changes everything!
The New line of products from Zildjian’s Gen16 Intelligent Percussion division have hit select stores this week. Go in and try them out; this changes everything.
The beauty of these cymbals is the beauty in the cymbals. As a low volume acoustic cymbal that plays at 25-50% of the volume of a standard cymbal, this is a must-have addition to every drummer’s cymbal bag. The high end shimmer and clarity can’t be found anywhere else. The feel and control of the 20” ride cymbal is reminiscent of a flat ride and allows ride patterns to be distinct and articulate. And the look…. Game Over! With the beautiful, shiny nickel plating reflecting the cool blue lighting effect emitted from the Gen16 pickups, the AE cymbals may become a welcome addition to your living room decor.
But these are more than just great sounding cymbals with an awesome appearance, these cymbals give you new creative power. While being designed to improve the cymbal performance experience when added to E-Kits, these cymbals let you put on the head phones and experiment with a whole new palette of sonic possibilities.
At a recent visit to Guitar Center Hollywood while on tour in LA with his Tennessee based band Burden, drummer Oliver Goodman exclaimed “ I will never play rubber cymbals again” after experiencing the GEN16 cymbals on an E-Kit for the very first time.
But this cymbal technology is just as much fun when you add them to a muted acoustic set in your home studio: instant drum booth! The power to change the EQ , filtering and reverb effects of your cymbals with the included DCP ( digital cymbal processor) is empowering. This new tool will inspire your performance. Put on a set of headphones and you can’t help but to get lost in the moment.
