  • Comments from customers who bought this item:

The DS pickup is a two-piece system consisting of the sensor (attaches to the cymbal, cowbell, etc) and LED light module and pre-amp section (attaches to the cymbal stand / Hi-Hat stand / drum hardware). The DS pickup can be used with personal monitors (headphones/ear buds) or live sound monitors (speakers). Like the original Gen16 (mic) pickup, the DS pickup IS NOT a trigger. The DS pickup captures all of the subtleties and nuances produced from a cymbal and striking device, such as sticks, mallets, brushes, rods and even a bow! While the DS pickup is great for solo play and rehearsals, it is designed for use on stage during live performance.

Like the original Gen16 pickup, the DS pickup can be used with the Gen16 DCP to provide individual control of audio, effects, and tone shaping of each cymbal. The DS pickup also provides for a better Gen16 cymbal sound as it allows the Digital Sound Processing within the DCP to be fully engaged. Each DS Pickup comes with a mounting kit for use on most manufactures cymbals and hi-hat stands.
