The Gen16 “acoustic / electric” System with Direct Source Pickup & Firmware 2.0 utilizes a patented, professional audio controller / cymbal processor; a new sensor/preamp; and patented, reduced volume Zildjian cymbals. It is a perfect match for electronic, acoustic or hybrid A/E drum and percussion setups. It can be used with the Gen16 reduced volume or traditional Zildjian acoustic cymbals allowing the audio of each cymbal to be managed independently. When using Gen16 cymbals, there is up to a 70% reduction in cymbal SPL with real acoustic sound and feel. Gen16 cymbals are first and foremost acoustic cymbals.
The AE RACK System is inspired by aerospace designs the AE Rack is perfect for both acoustic and electric percussion setups. Lightweight yet strong, extruded aluminum bars and glass filled ABS multi-clamps provide vibration isolation and the flexibility to securely hold most manufacturers’ drum accessory arms. Its cast aluminum hinge allows the rack to fold for transport while its cable channel holds up to 12 or more mic or edrum cables. The sleek design, minimal foot print, and clean edges will not over power the stage while the built-in cable management channel cleans up the drum set up and makes it perfect for small stages.
