Gen16, the new technology division of the Avedis Zildjian Company, has been awarded the "Best in Show" award at this year's winter NAMM Convention.

Seven music retail experts toured the Convention Center for three days to select the best and brightest of this year's offerings, and selected Gen16's Acoustic Electric (AE) Cymbals as one of the breakout hits of NAMM 2011.

Unlike MIDI trigger pads, Gen16's AE Cymbals are "real acoustic cymbals that sound and respond just like a traditional cymbal, but play at less than a quarter of the volume," according to the company. A dual microphone system and digital signal processing is designed to enable the AE Cymbal to create a range of natural cymbal sounds without the use of sampling or MIDI, according to Gen16.

 

The AE Cymbal was one of several products introduced by Gen16 at NAMM. Other Gen16 products on display included the AE Rack, a new hardware system for acoustic and electric drums and percussion, the Digital Vault library of samples of Zildjian's cymbals, the Groove Player app for iPad and iPhone, and the new Gen16Grooves.com online store.
