Splash Cymbal

The splash cymbal is the smallest cymbal in a drum kit, that creates a warm splash sound. This is a useful but simple sound that will also allow you to take in a big breath of air.

Standard Beatbox Notation (SBN)

{ ^psh }

How it's done

  1. First, try sucking in or breathing in air through your teeth to make an inward 'sh' sound.
  2. Now make the same sound but make a kissing motion with your lips - as if you're kissing someone (perhaps this sound ought to be called smooch cymbal?)
