The Contact Crash Ride18 is a versatile and superior performer. If you are going to just bring one to a pop or rock job, this fits the bill. A loud crash, it remains easily controlled, which is not so easy with louder cymbals. As a ride it provides just enough articulation to allow its full versatility to shine through.
The Contact series cymbals from Dream feature a uniquely shaped and slightly deeper cymbal profile with a relatively larger bell generating altogether unique cymbal tones. The stick feel for the player is very lively, while the pitch stands out a bit higher, but still rich and warm. The Contact series cymbals are medium to medium thin cymbals that speak very easily and cleanly. Faster and louder, these plates also have depth and complexity in the undertones and a shimmering wash that drives the sound forward and up. Perfect for home studio or demanding live situations.
