Description

The Gen16 Series Buffed Bronze Cymbals were a game changer in the electronic percussion world.

The Zildjian Buffed Bronze cymbals utilize a patented pattern of holes in varying sizes to reduce the sound pressure level (SPL) of an acoustic cymbal. These cymbals are then amplified via the optional Direct Source Pickup and Digital Cymbal Processor to create the acoustic/electric sound. They can be used with hybrid kits to develop new textures or electronic kits to capture a real cymbal feel versus playing on rubber pads.

Features:
  • Patented pattern of holes in varying sizes
  • Reduces the sound pressure level (SPL) of an acoustic cymbal
  • Direct Source Pickup and Digital Cymbal Processor to create the acoustic/electric sound
  • Can be used with hybrid kits or electronic kits
  • Great alternative to rubber pads

Disappointed

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.
