    Stay away from anything cracked.

    Well Maine, i am going to experience the Schmitar cymbal for the first time soon..( coming on Tuesday ) i bought some 14" hats cause it was a deal, not my first choice..but they were cheap so what the heck i needed something to hit now not later..blogs i have read are not to pleased with this line..time will tell..and as far as any cracked cymbals..my thought....just say no! sorry but in my early days of drumming no matter what i did to try to slow down crack..it failed..

    Yeah, I read the Schmitar cymbals were discontinued, and that they were a sheet-produced cymbal. Which means it was probably B8 alloy, right?

    I actually don't know. I just walked into GC like a year ago and said hey I need a new hi hat clutch. It was like fifteen bucks and certainly does not come apart every day like my last one did.

    I have not tried the hats, but the crashes are KILLER!
    All the cut and clarity of their A custom siblings, but with that shimmery ever so slight trashiness! I love this line of Zildjians!

    If the BOSS says okay, I say GET 'EM!

    Better than ZBTs...that's pretty much it. They aren't terrible cymbals but there are better Zildjians out there for sure.
