I don't own them, but I have tried the Zlidjian low volume cymbals out. They are really impressively quiet, and they feel like you're hitting a real cymbal, not a rubber pad. I can't say if they'd work for you, but I absolutely think they are worth a trip to a shop to try them for yourself.Hi Folks
Anyone using the low volume cymbals like Gen 16 or Zildjian low volume ones just wondering how effective they are for practice purposes thanks
Yes, I did this once when I was going to sub in a friend's band for a couple gigs. We did a low volume rehearsal at my place to go over arrangements, endings, etc. with the guitar turned down low and the singer just singing with no mic. I had mesh heads and the L80s. Worked like a charm.I've been wondering about low volume cymbals myself. Those who've used them, what about practice with other musicians? Do these things have enough sound that they could be used with other instruments turned down for a very low volume practice session? Or is that a stupid idea? Our band practices at our house which is in town with close neighbors so I've been shutting down rehearsals around 9:30. The neighbors are very VERY cool, but it would be nice to extend rehearsals sometimes without worry. BTW, I absolutely loathe using the rubber pads on cymbals.
