When the Gen16s were first introduced a few years ago, they were an instant game changer. Not only did they allow one of the most prestigious cymbal companies into the world of electronic percussion, but they gave you the feel and response of an actual cymbal. Zildjian has had yet another break though with these revolutionary cymbals. These Gen16s are now plated in a buffed bronze which produces a richer, warmer tone then the original nickel plated Gen16s. Unlike traditional cymbal pads, Gen16s can be played with sticks, rods or mallets. They play, respond, and feel like real cymbals because that's exactly what they are. These hi-hats are remarkably articulate with a defined chick sound, rich wash and sharp hiss.

Comments about Zildjian Gen16 14" Buffed Bronze Hi-Hat:

I purchased this to replace/upgrade my 13" Gen16 hi-hats. I installed them and all was ok except there is a very high pitched ringing sound as the cymbal strike decays. At first I thought maybe it would be OK and not be too noticeable but when I started playing with them it was clear that was not the case. The noise is very noticeable and very annoying. It happened when the hi-hat was struck with a stick and when the hi-hat is closed with the pedal. It didn't seem to be a problem when the hi-hat is open and struck with a stick. I went online to some forums and found that this is a well known issue with these hi-hats. The suggestions online were to mute the cymbal with the supplied dampers and some tape. I tried this, but by the time I sufficiently eliminated the noise the hi-hats sounded terrible. I tried every arrangement of tape and dampers and nothing improved the situation so I eventually ended up returning them and going back to the 13" hi-hats. I can't recommend these hi-hats and would suggest you go with the 13" version instead.
