Hi! It’s Friday, February 25, 2011 and time for a Virtual Field Trip at ClickSchooling!
Sabian Cymbal Factory
Age Range: All (with parental supervision)
This virtual field trip rocks! Ever wonder how cymbals are made? At this website you can view a 7-minute video that explains how cymbals are made at the Sabian cymbal factory in Canada.
When you get to the site, the “Quick Tour” will launch on the video screen that takes approximately 2 minutes. Directly below it, you’ll see options to view the “Full Tour” in English and German. I recommend the Full Tour. Just click on it and you can watch the fascinating manufacturing process.
After watching the factory tour, click on the “Education” tab on the horizontal menu at the top of the page. You can learn about cymbal types, cymbal anatomy, cymbal finishes and more.
If you have a drummer in the family – they’re sure to appreciate this!
