Dream: Vintage Bliss Series

Dream Cymbals

DRVBLISSCRR18

The very first Bliss prototypes were a unique micro-lathed hand hammered cymbal with a signature soft edge, low profile bell and gradual taper. Overnight these became collector’s items. So popular we released them as their own line: Vintage Bliss.

Their unique shape and weight give them and even wilder froth of ocean in the sound, while maintaining a rich warm stick sound.  Supremely responsive and full bodied they also have a fairly fast decay. These make truly functional crash-rides, the crashes are full and punchy while maintaining a defined stick sound supported by just the right amount of wash.
