There are three ways to play cymbals, one is hammering, that is, a soft mallet is used to strike one of them, and the length of the sound is controlled by the performance, and the other is smearing, that is, two cymbals are rubbed together to make a sound, and also There is a kind of impact, that is, two cymbals hit each other hard to make a loud sound. This method is widely used, not only used by military bands and brass bands, but also used by some waist drum teams.
