Gen16 Cymbals & Cymbal Sets
Gen16 is a true hybrid system, blending acoustic with electric. It contains Buffed Bronze cymbals, Direct Source Pickups and the powerful Digital Cymbal Processor. Discover a whole new world of cymbal sounds with the Zildjian Gen16 System.
The Gen16 Buffed Bronze cymbal produces a richer and warmer tone then the original Gen16 nickel plated cymbal. Each Gen 16 cymbal utilizes a patented pattern of holes, in varying sizes to reduce the sound pressure level (SPL) of an acoustic cymbal. The cymbal masters at Zildjian developed special manufacturing techniques to create the world's first reduced volume acoustic cymbal.
