by Madonna

Zildjian has unveiled its latest innovation with the introduction of the ALCHEM-E series electronic drum kits, marking their inaugural venture into producing complete drum kits.

The ALCHEM-E boasts the revolutionary Zildjian E-FAMILY cymbals, engineered to provide an authentic acoustic cymbal experience in terms of feel, responsiveness, subtlety, and appearance, coupled with unprecedented triggering accuracy and sensitivity thanks to the integrated Zildjian Trigger System.

Addressing a longstanding challenge in electronic drumming, Zildjian CEO John Stephans commented, “The perennial issue of rubber cymbal pads failing to replicate the authenticity of real cymbals has plagued drummers. Drawing from our four-century legacy of cymbal craftsmanship, we saw an opportunity to innovate and enhance the electronic drumming experience. Our goal was to offer drummers the most lifelike and genuine playing encounter across the entire kit, and we are confident in our achievement.”

Craigie Zildjian, the 14th Generation Owner, highlighted the strategic acquisition of BAC Audio two years ago, a move that brought together Zildjian’s centuries-old expertise in cymbal manufacturing with BAC Audio’s decades of pioneering electronic percussion engineering. Zildjian’s partnership with BAC Audio has propelled electronic cymbal technology to unprecedented heights.
