well whats outstanding about the china cymbal is that it makes such a unique sound compared to his crashes.I agree that this is an interesting thread. Although I don't kmow much about the technical side of musicianship - I'm not even sure what a China cymbal is - I would appreciate seeing more of this.
That's why I said "sound like", it also might be a small diameter crash, I don't recall Nicko as using splash that much. And I'm not a drummer
Is that splash in the middle. On FOTB he does a cymbal run so it might be that last hit.
