AE Cymbals are real acoustic cymbals that respond and sound like any other standard cymbal, the difference is these perform at a quarter of the volume. The dual microphone and digital signal processing allows the AE cymbal to create a range of natural cymbal effects without having to use sampling or MIDI.
