Signature Dark Energy Ride Mark II
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 II: Tends to be a bit livelier and brighter.
This manifests itself in the overall sound character and in particular in the bell and ping sound.
Mark II also has a bit more volume potential due to its more open character.
"The timbres of the 21” Mark I and Mark II rides were very similar to their respective 20" siblings, but the extra inch gave them a bigger, fuller sound. If a 20" ride is typically your preference, you might want to consider the 21" versions of the Dark Energy rides. I rate both of these as considerably more versatile than the 20“ versions." - Rick Mattingly
