The two cymbals are joined together by a woven rope. The cymbals are struck together producing a clear and high pitched tone. These are 2.5 inches in diameter. Tingsha are very thick and produce a unique long ringing tone. Tingsha Cymbals are made from special bronze alloys that produce harmonic overtones.
In high quality tingsha, both cymbals will match—the tones are identical or nearly identical.
