Zildjian is proud to be recognized by Music & Sound Retailer as 26th Annual Music & Sound Award Nominees for a selection of our products released this year. We were nominated for not one, not two, but THREE products! Here are the nominations:
Gen16's AE (Acoustic Electric) Cymbal
Zildjian’s Z3 Ultra Hammered Chinas
Zildjian Dave Grohl Artist Series Drumstick
With the introduction of Gen16, Zildjian ushered in a new generation of groundbreaking music and sound technologies in the percussion industry. The AE Cymbal System is the world's first hybrid acoustic/electric cymbal that combines patented low-volume acoustic cymbals with innovative microphone, signal processing, and tone modeling to create a paradigm shift in cymbal design. Learn more about these incredible new instruments at Gen-16.com.
The all-new Z3 Ultra Hammered Chinas feature a unique “volcano” bell design and extensive hammering that produce a louder, trashier sound. Perfect for cutting through metal and rock, the new Chinas are currently played by artists as diverse as Carter Beauford of the Dave Matthews Band and Matt Nicholls of Bring Me the Horizon.
We’re especially honored that Dave Grohl selected Zildjian to develop his new signature drumstick model. Tapping into his unique perspective on drumming, Zildjian created a stick that both performs well technically and makes a bold artistic statement with Grohl’s distinctive tattoo-inspired design.
