- Swish cymbal
The swish cymbal and the pang cymbal are exotic
ride cymbals originally developed as part of the collaboration between Gene Krupaand the Avedis Zildjian Company.
They have the upturned and
flanged edge of a china cymbalwith very small bell. The swish has a higher tone than the pang and is washier with a less pronounced ping, and this difference was accentuated as the swish was originally sold with rivets like a sizzle cymbal, while the pang was sold without rivets. However some drummers removed the rivets from the swish or added them to a pang. Typical sizes are 16 to 22 inches diameter for the swish, and 18 to 20 inches for the pang.
