Bigger, thinner, brasher
Dream’s Energy series is an effort to respond to the need of the modern drummer to have an expressive cymbal capable of the raw energy required for amplified music and high-tech recording environments.
Thinner than the standard Energy series ride, this Crash/Ride commands the attention of anyone who hears it. Purpose built for enormous, uncompromising wash, the abrasive tone of the Energy Series design comes into its own with this 20” Crash/Ride. A true multi-cymbal cymbal for the modern era, this piece will thunder along in any high energy environment but will also deliver bright and complex stick articulation away from the edges with a subtlety that defies the big crash stereotype.
Here's what Dream Cymbals have to say about the Energy Series
The Energy 20” crash ride is extremely present while maintaining our renowned musicality. Loud, explosive and able to take the most aggressive playing while remaining full bodied.
The ENERGY series offers a modern sound palette in a hand hammered cymbal. This bright, hard-hitting line meets the needs of anyone playing primarily in an amplified setting who is looking for a loud, bright, and penetrating quality that will cut through the sound of the rest of the band and deliver the energy of the drummer right to the audience.
Unique to the ENERGY line, the bell is left un-lathed focusing the weight of the cymbal in and around its center. This results in a cymbal that has a slightly exotic timbre with all the sound qualities that a rock or metal drummer is listening for combined with a raw, unrefined look. ENERGY cymbals are also excellent recording cymbals that will have you sounding great in the studio.
