Bo Instrument

The bo (simplified Chinese: ?; traditional Chinese: ?; pinyin: bo; Wade-Giles: po) is a percussion instrument originating in China, a type of cymbals. It consists of two plates that are clashed together. It is a concussion idiophone.

The Metropolitan Museum of Art has one from nineteenth century China. Both parts have a diameter of 56.5 centimeters.[1]

The cymbal in the rock drumset China cymbals may be based on the bo, but is hit with a drumstick instead.
