Brushed Cymbal

The brushed cymbal sound is a quieter version of the hard hi-hat sound. This is a quite versatile sound that will also help you develop your tone and volume as a vocal percussionist.

How it's done

  1. Start with your teeth slightly apart.
  2. Now what you're aiming for is a sound between a 't' and a 's'. It should sound like neither!
  3. Now add a 't' sound to the beginning and you should now have a brushed cymbal sound.
