The Flat Earth series ride cymbals from Dream feature a wondrous mysterious combination of two of Dream's finest creations - the Small Bell Flat Ride and the Dark Matter Series. This extra dry but responsive ride is nearly flat, double tempered and has a small bell. If sound existed in outer space - it might sound like this cymbal.
About The Dark Matter Series From Dream
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.
