Quick Response, Affordable Cost
Contact Splashes like their larger cousins have a warm and bright tone. They are quick to speak with a medium-high pitch and a relatively long decay for cymbals of this size and type.
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. Similar to other nude finish cymbals with deep lathing, the Contact splashes speak incredibly quickly making them louder than their Bliss counterparts. 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.
