Gen16 Acoustic Cymbals
Make no mistake - Gen16 cymbals are real, acoustic, natural sounding and responding Zildjian cymbals. Gen16 cymbals feature a unique range of holes that reduce sound pressure levels by up to 70 percent when compared to a standard cymbal. The result is a much lower volume without losing the rich authentic tone you would expect from a Zildjian cymbal. This makes Gen16 cymbals the perfect practice cymbal in environments when quieter playing is required.
Despite the huge reduction in sound pressure levels, Gen16 will still feel like a pleasure to play. These cymbals respond beautifully to every nuance and dynamic aspect of your sticking.
