Unique Creation Process
Creates Individual Sounds Like No Other
Medium To Long Sustain With Quick Decay
The Dream Dark Matter Series Energy 16" Crash erupts with full-bodied, shattering crash sounds. The raw image of this cymbal is captivating with it's dark, multi-tonal colour. The sounds are individual and like no other. Initially bright, however it then spirals into something darker, dirtier and trashy. This is in a range of higher and lower pitches and the sustain is medium to long with a fast decay.
Dream's Dark Matter Cymbals consists of three different models: Flat Earth, Moon Rides and Dark Matter Energy. Although the design and production methods vary for each of the three models, they have all been through Dream's unique Dark Matter Process. The process involves taking a cymbal that's already finished and sending back into the oven. The next step is to apply repeated rounds and hammering before submerging the cymbal into a cold water bath. The end product is pure bronze on the inside however the outside is a blend of the ash and soot from the oven fused together with the top layer of metal. Essentially, Dark Matter Cymbals have been created twice, producing cymbals that not only sound great but have their own individual appearance.
