On a sunny afternoon in 1968, Robert Gallien walked into his local music store, carrying an amplifier he had made in his garage. 47 years and thousands of amplifiers later, Bob Gallien is still designing some of the most innovative and highly sought after products on the market. His creations enjoy a heritage of recording and stage performances with the world’s most discriminating artists.
We remain the oldest incorporated, continuously family-owned & operated music string manufacturer in the world and produce the finest instrument strings.
Every Dream cymbal is hand-made and hand-hammered, painstakingly created from fire, base metal and human spirit to create an individual masterpiece. The hand-craftsmanship of our master smiths is apparent in every Dream cymbal.
Each Dream cymbal or gong starts out as copper, tin, and other elements, mixed with years of mastery to cast the bronze disks. When sufficiently aged, each disk is repeatedly heated and forged by hammer into the primal shape of a cymbal. After careful tempering the instruments are again aged until it is time to bring out their voice.
Skillful hammering by a dedicated team of smiths results in a raw, dark-colored cymbal that is battered and scarred from countless precise blows. These will become exceptional musical offerings.
