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 24” Bliss ride provides an excellent rounded and woody stick attack sound with the clear ping of a flat ride. It has a delightful vintage style wobble from bell to edge and a small distinctive-sounding bell. This is a flag ship cymbal of Dream and there is only one other like it- the Contact series version. All the control and definition of a flat ride without the annoying thin harmonics and unbalanced sound found in a typical flat ride. the secret lies in the hand hammering and smallest of bells. and a bit of magic dust.
