A cymbal hit, filmed at 1,000 frames per second, does a lot more vibrating than one would typically imagine. These slow motion videos went viral mid-last year, but my kid missed it. Maybe yours did, too. See all of Fluke Corporation’s vibration videos here.

Update: And just in case you need to know what a cymbal sounds like, there’s this How It’s Made video, and we do have Max Roach on the hi-hat, which is a little different than a cymbal, but oh so worth watching.
