The Zildjian Gen16 A/E System utilizes the Buffed Bronze cymbals with their volume-reducing hole pattern, a Direct Source Pickup and a Digital Cymbal Processor (DCP) to bring new experiences to the world of hybrid/e-drumming. This innovative system provides the ability to shape acoustic cymbal tones and apply DSP effects such as EQ/Filtering/Pitch Shifting to create new textures not commonly available in traditional acoustic cymbals. This is done without any worry of feedback, crosstalk or phasing that can occur with traditional microphone setups.
Unlike cymbal trigger pads, Zildjian Buffed Bronze cymbals may be played with sticks, rods or mallets. They can be brushed and choked like traditional cymbals because they are real cymbals.
