super slow mo cymbal hit

Very cool, it shows really well why a thinner cymbal is less prone to cracking than a thicker one. And also why swipping at the cymbal is better than going straight in.

Iv seen that before somewhere. I dont get it though, you tend to hit a cymbal really hard, but still it wobbles and bends so much so quickly (i know its vibrations) its just wierd.

If it's a science experiment they probably just bought the cheapest one they could find :p They we're looking to film the movement as opposed to the sound I'd imagine.

Really cool video!

I have a great pic of me crashing a 16" a custom where the cymbal is really flexing. I'll post it when I'm home and get a chance.
