    Created out of Dream's unrelenting need to explore sound, the Dark Matter line was released in 2010 and quickly sent the industry into a tailspin trying to catch up. Dark Matter is created from a proprietary process where the cymbals are fired repeatedly. The extreme stresses from this action create changes to the cymbals on a molecular level, taking months of ageing to mature and evolve. These cymbals continue to grow as they are broken in and played upon, creating your own unique voice.

    It is a stunning combination of two signature Dream sounds. The Small Bell Flat and the Dark Matter combine to create a sound that is salty, gritty and dry without losing the life of a fine hand hammered ride. The bells are borrowed from the famous Small Bell Flat Rides with the bow of the cymbal is nearly flat. The Dark Matter re-firing process harnesses the wash and adds a unique layer of complexity to a true dark horse.

    The flat profile and small bell creates a large surface for vibrations for propagate, creating a long, dark wash which reacts quickly to the stick. The unfinished surface, micro lathed and refired, creates a warm, dark tone with complex undertones.
