ok, so in the song This Could Be Anywhere In The World by Alexisonfire, in the intro theres kinda like a bellish-sort of sound as played by the drummer.
So me and me drummer have a bet. He says this effect is done by the drummer having a cow bell mounted to a stand and just hitting it the required number of times to get the same effect. I totally disagree, but I have no clue how he'd do it coz I'm not a drummer.
Like always; theres a pizza and beer riding on this bet.

it does not sound like a cowbell. it is a percussion instrument, like some sort of cymbal, but i'm not sure.

I'm sure it's the crash or ride cymbal, except hitting the middle where it curves in, but not too sure.

Maybe it's the same thing used here by Fugazi:

I doubt it is the bell, more a cymbal, I just wanted to show everyone that guy in the crowd.

It's the bell on the ride cymbal... your friend's an idiot.

(or the bell on another cymbal. I use the ride for it.)

According to my brother, who is actually a decent drummer, it is 99% likely its the bell of the ride, probably at least a 20" or bigger...
