Dream 22" Vintage Bliss Series Crash/Ride Cymbal - Product Information

The Dream Vintage Bliss 22" Crash Ride is popular among Jazz drummers for its complex overtones and great stick definition. Dream Cymbals released the Vintage Bliss as its own series after the first proto-type bliss cymbals became collector's items. Vintage Bliss Cymbals are characterized by their soft edge, low profile bell and gradual taper. You could spend hundreds of dollars more to get this type of sound from a vintage Turkish Cymbal from the 50s or 60s. This 22" Vintage Bliss Crash Ride is hand hammered before and after the micro lathing process resulting in amazing tones and a fabulous wash. The taper becomes very thin at the edges giving you a wobble you can see, but still retaining its definition. The Vintage Bliss 22" Crash Ride is a Jazz drummers Dream.

Gorgeous Cymbal

Comments:

This cymbal is a very particular one, quite different, for example, from the 22" Dream Energy Crash Ride. The Vintage Bliss is light and thin, with almost no ping, but perfectly calibrated wash, clear stick definition, and plenty of volume. It is more of a ride than a crash, with a darker sound character, lower pitch, and a crisp bright bell. The sound character adapts to different applications, so it is one of the cymbals that works very well in many diverse recording contexts. I've been surprised by every Dream cymbal I've acquired, and this one is no exception. It is a gorgeous instrument, and one would expect to pay at least three times the price for the inherent quality on offer. Over the years I've acquired and later sold Zildjian, Paiste, Bosphorus, Istanbul & Sabian rides, but this one is a keeper. And the price point is most pleasantly confounding. It is a unique cymbal, unlike a specialized heavy bright ping rock ride, so if broad application suits your purposes, this is certainly the cymbal for you.

This is now my favorite cymbal I own. These Dream cymbals are excellent and at a fraction of the cost they could sell for. The guys that I talk to on the phone are very cool and knowledgable about their products. They were helpful on my decision which cymbals to purchase. Thank you.
