The center, most concave section of a cymbal is called the “bell,” “dome,” or “cup.” When struck, this part of the cymbal has a higher, distinctive “ping” sound that can cut through a mix or group performance. A drummer may use the bell of the cymbal as part of a rhythmic articulation or as an accent.
