That is amazing, isn't it? I'm not a percussionist, and I don't know much about the subject, but it would be real interesting to know the specs on that cymbal, and maybe see some other types photographed that way, too. I do know there's lotsa kinds of cymbals - crash and ride and hihat and fast crash and dark crash, drumset cymbals, marching cymbals, symphonic cymbals, cast bronze, sheet bronze, and all sorts of stuff I'm sure I never heard of. You could even look here at the Zildjian website and see for yourself - here's an informative little picture:

Oh that is too cool. Sent it straight to my son's drum teacher.
