Should I get another Crash? What about a smaller ride. I can’t decide!
Don’t worry, Dream is here to help. Taking the aggressive high volume tones of a crash, and marrying them with the smooth crisp tone of a ride, the crash/ride combination in the Bliss series is really a dream. Available in 4 unique sizes, 18″, 19″, 20″, and 22″, the combinations are endless.
The Bliss 18″ Crash/Ride – Dream forges, hammers, and lathes its cymbals all by hand. The human element comes through in their appearance. The surface areas of the Bliss lines sport ultra-thin stripes created by micro-lathing coupled with unique hammer marks. This technique creates complex and musical sounding cymbals that respond to your every desire… what a Dream.
The Bliss 19″ Crash/Ride – This 19″ crash ride exudes a dark, rich warmth with excellent stick sound. It’s small bell is articulate and clear. Something about the odd sizes is quite appealing. More body than an 18, the 19 is a more tempered beast than the brawn of a 20 or 22.
The Bliss 20″ Crash/Ride – Bursting with personality as a crash, this 20″ crash ride has excellent stick definition yet a full bodied crash when needed. Often referred to by our fans as the only crash ride that lives up to it’s name.
The Bliss 22″ Crash/Ride – This shimmering ride cymbal has a long sustain, and a remarkably rich and full-bodied overtone overtone series that heavily emphasizes darker, lower tones. OK this is the second cymbal that lives up to it’s name – Crash Ride. It does both with finesse and expressive potential you can only dream of.

Bliss series cymbals from Dream are cymbals made from an ancient tradition. Every single cymbal is a unique work of art, painstakingly hand forged and hand hammered by the Dream cymbal team. Each Bliss series cymbal features a warmth that beautifully seduces at low volume and thunders with a froth of dark undertones when pushed to the limit. These cymbals come alive, shimmering and wobbling as if the mere touch of human hands excites the cymbal and it can’t wait to get it’s voice out there and sing.
