[Quote= Ricardo] Artisans..................I should have guessed and stand corrected. Way to much money do Sabians..........and you break them?"
Too much money? Yeah they're pricey, but they are ridiculously good, and no I haven't broken a cymbal in five or six years. It was an 18" HH thin crash so not quite as expensive as an Artisan (I still cried), but it was my favorite cymbal for 15 years and I never found another that sounded just like it. I "settled" for an 18" HHX Manhattan, which is close, but not the same. I just started playing the Artisans this year, and hopefully many more years to come. Cymbals are unique and difficult to get two that sound identical. It's hard to replace a favorite.
