Announcing the New Gen 16 Buffed Bronze

The Next Generation of Reduced Volume Cymbals

The Zildjian Sound Lab has created the next generation of reduced volume cymbals, the Gen16 Buffed Bronze Series. Using knowledge gained from the original Gen16 nickel plated cymbal line, Zildjian craftsman drew upon the Company’s rich design history to make subtle but important changes to the bell profiles of the original cymbals. Additional lathing has also been applied on the larger size models to increase the lower fundamental overtone structure. Also significant is the rich buffed bronze finish of the new line that greatly enhances its appearance and produces a warmer tone than the original Gen16 nickel plated models.

With the original Gen 16 nickel plated models and the new Gen16 Buffed Bronze Series, drummers now have more cymbal setup options. Sizes, configurations, and MSRP pricing for both lines are as follows:
