Light & dark
These 12” hats are light and crisp with an articulate and dynamic stick sound as well as consistently crisp foot chicks without air pockets. The rough-hewn feel of Dream cymbals gives them more bite than other contemporary 12” hats. These hats feel soft and dark under the stick, give splashy open sounds and a truly comfortable foot feel.
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. Their uncompromising approach means every cymbal has its own unique character, and its own story to tell - and you are its next chapter.
