Dream Cymbals Contact Series 14" Hi Hat Pair
Deeply Lathed, Hand Made Cymbals from Wuhan, China
Clean, Classic and not too Dark
The Dream Contact hats are instantly recognisable. Closed up tight they have a clean and bright sound which opens up to a buttery darkness that cuts easily through any mix when you lift the foot.
With a thicker body and a deeper, wider lathing style than other Dream cymbals, the Contact series bridges a difficult gap between vintage design and modern sound. They are perfect for a loud or quiet setting providing the volume and expression needed for modern music whilst compromising on none of the complex dark undertones one would expect from Dream cymbals.
Here's what Dream Cymbals have to say about the Contact Series Crash
The Contact series feature a shaped and slightly deeper profile with a relatively larger bell. The stick feel is very lively, The pitch is higher but still rich and warm. These are medium to medium thin cymbals that speak very easily. Faster and louder, these plates also have depth and complexity in the undertones and a shimmering wash that drives the sound forward and up. At home in studio or live situations.
