Bliss series are new cymbals made in the ancient tradition. Every one is an individual work of art, painstakingly hand forged, and hand hammered.
They have a warmth that seduces at low volume and thunders with a froth of dark undertones at more extreme volumes. These cymbals come alive, shimmering and wobbling as if the mere touch of human hands excites the cymbal and it can’t wait to get it’s voice out there and sing.
They are exceptionally resilient and slightly soft on the stick. The undertones are warm, rich, dark with an edge of dragon’s breath. Each one is a unique, complex voice that will excite your imagination.
This shimmering ride cymbal has a rich full-bodied overtone series. The bell is un-choked, clear, tuned and distinct from the rest of the cymbal. For those that want more definition than that found in the Crash Ride, yet long for the complex warmth and rich dark hue of the Bliss series.
