How do you make them?

It's like in every song i know of Camo & Krooked. In the background you hear what i think are cymbals (their sweetshop remix is a good example). But i dont know if they really are cymbals?
How do you actually make them because a normal cymbal sample has the *tick sssssss* but all you hear in dnb is the *sssssss*.. Do they just grab a cymbal and slice out the tick or am i searching in the wrong direction?

Thanks in advance!

This is what i mean (from 0.43)

I didnt listen but have you tried reversing the sounds?

i dont know exactly how its done but i really wana know as well...cuz its useful for all sorts of music, not just dnb.

im guess its just some eq, subtle reverb and echo but i could be wrong

You can compress a ride or an open hihat really heavily with a really short attack so it levels it out and get this sort of sound
