Hard & fast
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.
The tiny 8” Energy Series splash is simple yet effective. This cymbal takes all the characteristics of an Energy Cymbal and applies them to a smaller scale. An extremely fast response tempered and focussed by the raw, unlathed bell creates a rude yet balanced splash cymbal. Ideal for use in any large scale multi cymbal setup or as an expansion to a burgeoning set, the Energy 8” Splash would be perfect in dub or reggae setting or for a hard-hitting prog or metal drummer looking for a quick, snappy splash.
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.
