The 15" Dark Matter Hi-Hats from Dream Cymbals are Hi-Hats that are built for a "lunar landscape". Featuring an un-lathed bottom finish paired with a double tampered top finish product a dry, fat, and angry hi-hat that can cut through any mix. Don't take our word for it though, give it a listen below.
The uniquely formed Dark Matter family of cymbals from Dream consist of three distinct models: Flat Earth, Moon Rides and Dark Matter Energy. Although the design and production methods are very different for each of the three models, one thing they all share in common is that they have been through the unique "Dark Matter" crafting process. This "Dark Matter" process involves returning an already finished cymbal back to the oven for repeated rounds of heating and hand hammering, only then to shock it at the end with a cold water bath. The resulting cymbal is one 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.
