It depends on what you want, man, you gotta be more specific. The most common FX cymbal is a china, and Zildjian makes several outstanding models (as does Saluda, gotta get that plug in there!) for you to check out. If you're looking for a purely trashy cymbal, check out their Oriental China Trash series, also the Crash Of Doom, designed by Dennis Chambers.Tomthedrummer":s9uft50l said:I have been thinking about buying a Zildjian Effects Cym....and i wanted to ask if any of you guys have effects cyms or at least know something about them, can give me some advice?

yes, peart did have these for a while. and i know "big chimes" isnt really the technical name. in the drum corps world we called them the "church bells" because there was a part in the one show that these things were going nuts and it sounded like a church thingFlatliner":1fhxm5u3 said:the "Big Chimes" are also known as "Tubular Bells", reminds me of Peart's old set up when he had them for the hemispheres days.

or wind chimes
there ya go.
broken, cracked cymbals stacked also sound pretty need. as does putting a small splash on your snare drum. you can hit beside the cymbals giving a technoish drum sound or hit the cymbal for a white noise like snare hit.
These are cymbals I wish too... I've just got the 7" Radia cup chime (very pleasing) and 7" & 9" MAX splashes (love 'em too).anavrinIV":mpvudzin said:
