Cymbals are small cast bowls. There are always two connected with a cord, which are struck together and a bright sound is heard.
Lighter brass cymbals have a rather subtle sound, while heavier bronze cymbals sound powerful and penetrating.
Cymbals are already mentioned in the Bible. In Asia they are still often used ritually for religious ceremonies.
In belly dancing, smaller cymbals are used as finger cymbals with a loop for belly dancing. Attached to the middle finger and thumb, the finger cymbals can be struck in one hand to accompany the dance.
Chime bars, or even called zenergy chimes, are similar in sound. A solid metal rod is hung freely on a wooden board. If you hit the stick with a hard mallet, you will hear a bright sound. Chime bars are available in different moods and several together as two or three chords.
