Signature Dark Energy Crash Mark I
Dark body, full frequency spectrum, brilliant highs.
This crash combines silky, soft qualities with energy and projection for an incredibly versatile application range.
Also extremely well suited as suspended cymbals and for mallet rolls.
"The Dark Energy crashes are all medium-light, which gives them a quick response but not a lot of body, volume, or sustain—especially in the small¬ er sizes. That might sound like a negative assessment, but I've played countless acoustic gigs where I was afraid to hit a crash for fear of obliter¬ ating the sound of the other instruments. The Dark Energy crashes, by contrast sound very "shimmery." The over¬ tones are high-pitched, which could help them cut through in somewhat louder situations. But they sound best when played with a light to medium stroke. The consistency of sound among the various crash sizes was impressive. Each cymbal was a bit lower in pitch and had a slightly bigger sound than the size below." - Rick Mattingly
