Although the designed and production methods are very different for these three models, one thing they all have in common is that they have been through DREAM's special "Dark Matter Process".This process involves returning an already finished cymbal to the ovens for repeated rounds of heating and hand hammering only then to shock it with a cold water bath. The result is a cymbal that is pure bronze on the inside, but with ash and soot from the oven fused with the top layer of metal.DARK MATTERS are essentially cymbals that have been created twice.Sometimes referred to as our musical manhole cover, this cymbal requires muscles. The extra work is worth it when looking for the ultimate ride to cut through the most dense soundscapes and stacks of amps. Walk softly and carry a big stick (and this cymbal).
