The Stranglers’ Jim Macaulay demonstrates the new hi-hats.
Canadian-based Dream Cymbals has introduced its successful ‘TriHat’ Hi-hats to the UK.
There will be a celebratory store launch day on 12th May at authorised UK Dream retailers, which will include store appearances and TriHat demonstrations by U. rostered Dream artists such as Adam Gammage – who currently plays for BBC Music ‘Sound Of 2017’ nominee Tom Grennan.
The Dream TriHat has been designed to redefine how drummers think about Hi-hats. Of all the cymbals a drummer uses, the most time is spent playing the Hi-hat, yet, typically, they are expensive to own and slow to swap out during a gig if a different sound is required for the next tune. The Dream TriHat is designed to be the perfect solution.
Dream has done away with the top/bottom hat designations and carefully selected three hi-hat cymbals that create the most dynamic mix of hat sounds available.
Any of the three can be a top or bottom, allowing up to six sound combinations. By adding an extra clutch to the package, quick changes during a set are easy. You can move from velvety and warm, to rockin’ and fat, to tight and crisp with just one TriHat pack.
Each TriHat set includes a 14” Bliss, Contact and Energy hi-hat cymbal, an extra Hi-hat clutch and a streamlined bag to carry it all in. Available pack models are ‘Diversity’ and ‘Elements’, each retailing at £320.
