Signature Dark Energy Ride Mark I
A fusion of darkness, energy, projection and brilliance.
Very wide range, complex, musical mix.
Responsive feel, extremely controllable.
Woody, silvery, spanky ping over crunchy, thriving wash.
Extremely versatile, flexible ride for wide ranging application in modern blended music styles.
Mark I: Tends to be a bit quieter, darker and drier.
This manifests itself in the overall sound character and in particular in the bell and ping sound.
"The 22" models obviously had a bigger sound, by virtue of their size. The 22" Mark I with its narrower spread of overtones, retained its definition at high volume levels. So with the 22" Dark Energy rides, I would count the Mark I as the more versatile." - Rick Mattingly
