Cool video created by the Fluke Corporation (manufacturers of electronic testing tools and software) to promote its Fluke 810 Handheld Vibration Tester.

They used a Phantom HD Gold video camera to film a single cymbal strike with a drumstick, slowing it down to 1000 frames per second.

So much of movement is invisible to the human eye. Sure, our eyes can see a cymbal move when struck by a drum stick. But it’s what our eyes can’t see that is most captivating. Metal rippling as if it were fabric fluttering in the wind…
