Beauty in sound & sight
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.
Simultaneously bright & dark, like all Dream Cymbals these Energy Series Hi Hats almost defy classification. Crisp and tight when held closed these hats sigh expansively into an abrasive wash giving the user plenty of control and a variety sounds at the tip of their toes. Under the stick they are bright in the middle near the unlathed bell and dark near the edge with a satisfying chick under foot. Surprisingly versatile, the heavy unlathed bottom hat and the crisp medium top hat ooze expression without compromising volume making these 14” hats useful for a variety of styles.
Here's what Dream Cymbals have to say about the Energy Series
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.
