Specialty ride cymbal handmade with an intense firing process

The Dream Dark Matter Energy ride cymbal sizzles with a powerful combination of dry, gritty undertone and total clarity of definition. When struck with the stick shoulder, it expands with trashy notes and decays as quickly as it came. Low, earthy and striking to look at, this cymbal can’t be found from anyone but Dream.

Dream created the Dark Matter series from their unrelenting need to explore new sounds. Dark Matter is crafted from a proprietary process where the cymbals are fired repeatedly. The extreme stresses from this action create changes to the cymbals on a molecular level, taking months of aging to mature and evolve. These cymbals continue to grow as they are broken in and played upon, becoming part of the player’s unique musical voice. This series is unique to Dream, born of free experimentation and then carefully honed over years of development. The unique charred finish matches the fiery sound of these special cymbals. Part explosion, part afterburner—all Dark Matter.
