Versatile Cymbal that Delivers Full and Punchy Crashes
Maintains a Soft but Clear and Defined Stick Sound
Mysterious and Exotic Undertones
Unique Hand Hammered and Micro-Lathed
Truly Functional Crash Ride
The Dream Cymbal Vintage Bliss 17" Crash Ride is a versatile, thin cymbal that produces explosive, full and punchy crashes while maintaining a soft but clearly defined stick sound that is perfect for riding. These cymbals have proven to be popular among jazz drummers due to their mysterious and exotic undertones, and among hard hitting drummers due to their explosive musicality.
Vintage Bliss Cymbals first started as unique micro-lathed, hand hammered cymbals with a signature soft edge, low profile bell and gradual taper. These prototypes became so popular that Dream introduced their own line - the Vintage Bliss. Their unique shape and weight make these cymbals incredibly responsive and full bodied with a fairly fast decay.
