Dream Cymbals 17" Vintage Bliss Series Crash/Ride VBCRRI17

Model Description

Vintage Bliss Dream cymbals are the darkest of all the Dream series'.

(a 17 Vintage Crash-Ride will be darker than even a standard 18 Bliss Crash-Ride)

The very first Bliss prototypes were a unique micro-lathed hand-hammered cymbal with a signature

soft edge, low profile bell and gradual taper.

Overnight these became collector’s items. So popular, Dream released them as their own specific

line as the Vintage Bliss.


The unique shape and weight of these cymbals give them an awesome dark pitch and rich deep decay

while maintaining a warm and fairly clear stick sound. Supremely responsive and full bodied they also

have a fairly fast decay.

These make truly functional crash-rides... full and punchy when crashed while maintaining a

defined riding stick sound supported by a balanced wash.
