Browse our crash cymbals here!
Splash cymbals are often used as a kind of effects cymbal. It produces a small and quick "pfft" sound, which could be best described as a sort of "mini-crash".
Splash cymbals are great for short breaks - fx together with a beat on the snare drum, but they do also sound great on their own if you play them properly.
Listen, for instance, to Manu Katché or Vinnie Colaiuta playing with Sting. They are fine excamples of cool splash playing.
