Dark Matter Energy Featuring the unique charred finish of the Dark Matter Series, the Dark Matter Energy Crashes explode beautifully and then disappear into the mist. The rides sizzle with a powerful combination of dry gritty undertone and total clarity of definition. Created out of our unrelenting need to explore sound, the Dark Matter line was released in 2010 and quickly sent the industry into a tailspin trying to catch up - Beware of imitations! Dark Matter is created from our proprietary process where the cymbals are fired repeatedly. The extreme stresses from this action create changes to the cymbals on a molecular level, taking months of aging to mature and evolve. These cymbals continue to grow as they are broken in and played upon, becoming part of your own unique musical voice.
