2013 has been a busy time for Zildjian's Gen16 team and for the Yamaha DTX crew. Zildjian has extended their core Gen16 technology with the release of the Direct Source pickup. And, together this summer the companies are rolling out special packages that bundle DTX drums with Gen16 cymbals.
DRUM! has gotten together with the two firms to present series of videos over the next month that will show you some of their top players performing with special Yamaha/Zildjian kits and give you tips for your own setup. And, many of these clips will be exclusive to DRUMagazine.com, so stay tuned. First up, studio savant, and American idol drum star Russ Miller puts the Direct Source pickup through its paces.
