    Looking For Cymbal Help

    I've spent a few minutes trying to find a shot of what I'm looking for and may have found one. Right at the beginning of this clip there it is but I don't know what it's called and how to find one online.



    Or here, at the 3:10 mark.



    If you look right at the beginning of the first, or the mark in the second, there's a stacked cymbal thingy there, almost right in the middle of the screen. What the hell is that called? Is it one instrument or multiple, stacked on top of each other? Is it just some crazy invention with multiple different cymbals?

    I want one but have no idea of how to find a price for something that I don't even know what it's called, if anything. There's a certain pssh sound to it that I dig and I'm not sure if it's him hitting both cymbals to get that sound or if it's just one cymbal he hits and because it's small it gives that sound I'm looking for.

    Trying to find an example of him playing the thing on video is scant. Wish I could find an example of that sound but the only thing I can direct you too is Mike Mangini's version of it on IIRC Live at Luna Park. He omits it in 6:00 so that might be a starting point.

    All the china boys I've ever had were in the 22" range. Big mo-fo's. Not the splish splash that I'm hearing.

    Ok, you can almost see him hitting the cymbal tree at the 5:10 mark of The Dance of Eternity. What the hell is that called?

    I have to know and all my search results have failed.

    Looks like a Zildjian "Zil-Bel" cymbal (or similar). Here's a video...

    AH HAH! Thank you so much. Now I see what I'm dealing with and it's something I'll just have to create. No wonder I couldn't find anything as it's not just one item.
