    Product Description

    Quick Response, Affordable Cost

    With a thicker body and a deeper, wider lathing style than other Dream cymbals, the Contact series bridges a difficult gap between vintage design and modern sound. Similar to other nude finish cymbals with deep lathing, the Contact crashes speak incredibly quickly making them louder than their Bliss counterparts. They are perfect for a loud or quiet setting providing the volume and expression needed for modern music whilst compromising on none of the complex dark undertones one would expect from Dream cymbals.

    Here's what Dream Cymbals have to say about the Contact Series Crash

    The Contact 18” Crash Ride is a versatile and superior performer. If you are going to just bring one to a pop or rock job, this fits the bill. A loud crash, it remains easily controlled, which is not so easy with louder cymbals. As a ride it provides just enough articulation to allow its full versatility to shine through.
    The Contact series features a shaped and slightly deeper profile with a relatively larger bell. The stick feel is very lively, The pitch is higher but still rich and warm. These are medium to medium thin cymbals that speak very easily. Faster and louder, these plates also have depth and complexity in the undertones and a shimmering wash that drives the sound forward and up. At home in studio or live situations.

    Mr William Diment26th Dec 2020

    I have been using Dream Contact cymbals for a while now and thoroughly recommend them. Wonderful bright attack and beautiful sustain with some nice overtones. I pair my 18" up with a 16" Dream Contact to get those huge rock impacts when launching into a heavy chorus etc. I also use a 20" Dream Energy Crash/Ride, they work nicely as a set.
