Striking The Balance
When you set out to buy a crash / ride, it’s often difficult to find the cymbal that truly strikes that balance – the Bliss 20” is hand-forged in China with this exact goal in mind. When you strike the bell, you instantly feel its distinct resonance and clarity, yet you’re able to effortlessly summon a shimmering, breathy crash sound – everything you’d want from a versatile crash / ride, but with every ounce of character you’d expect from the Bliss range.
Forged and Crafted by Hand
Dream cymbals are handmade in China using traditional methods dating back to 2000 BC, and the Bliss series combines this trademark craftsmanship with affordability. The techniques used in manufacture leave a very ‘human’ impression; every cymbal has its own unique character, and its own story to tell - and you are its next chapter.
