Dark Matter are heavy and totally un-lathed. While not at all gongy, they certainly can ring a bit more than a traditional lighter cymbal. Stick response is fantastic. They currently come in two flavors, the Dark Matter Energy Rides and the Dark Matter Flat Earth Rides. The grand-daddy of the Dark Matter family will be available shortly, the Dark Matter Moon Rides: these are quite heavy, very dry and cutting. Not for the faint of heart. Energy rides: lathed under firing, large bells, medium weight, dry stick response. Flat Earth rides: lathed under firing, micro bell, flat profile. Moon rides: very heavy, large bells, un-lathed, double fired. Hi cutting, dry.
