charley


Explanation:
This is a percussion sound apparently peculiar to techno and similar crap. High frequency, often mentioned with cymbals. I had trouble trying to document this because search engines want to turn it into "Charley's". It turned up more on French pages than on English, so it may still be making its way into the latter.
