Dark Matter Cymbals
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.
The Dream Dark Matter Series Hi-hats 14'' are a pair of aggressive sounding hi-hats that go through Dream's unique Dark Matter creation process. This is where the dark, raw image comes from. The sound is meaty and dry with a metallic edge. This is a result of the un-lathed bottom side and double tempered top side. The cymbals are then left for several months to mature into the finished product. The Dark Matter hi-hats are able to cut through sound and produce a wide range of tones with each stroke. This makes them suitable in various settings, whether that be recording, gigging or just practicing.
