Adrian Young has intergraded The Gen16 AE Cymbal System into his touring rig for the upcoming No Doubt tour. The tour will feature Adrian playing on both acoustic and electronic drumsets. The AE Cymbal System will be used on his electronic kit during part of the show. According to Adrian; “I really liked the product and I’m excited about incorporating it into the show”.
The Gen16 Acoustic Electric Cymbal System represents a paradigm shift in electronic percussion. Zildjian’s revolutionary new cymbal system includes low-volume, acoustic metal cymbals; a pickup that utilizes a patent-pending, dual-head mini microphone design; and a Digital Cymbal Processor designed to produce customizable cymbal sounds.
Adrian has been able to masterfully blend his various rock, ska, and punk influences to develop a playing style which compliments his band and serves each song very well. After playing with the Vandals on a two week European tour, Adrian spent the better part of 2000 on the road with No Doubt in support of "Return of Saturn."
No Doubt continues to enjoy success in the US and Internationally, playing to sold-out audiences around the world. During his time off from No Doubt, Adrian enjoys touring with one of his favorite bands, "Bow Wow Wow" (of "I Like Candy" fame) as well as doing other side projects.
