    Default Cutting out crack in cymbal




    Broke another cymbal. This time a crack in the center of the cymbal. So here is how I fix that.

    I’ve done that also and like you’ve mentioned, it could be hit or miss on sound afterward. You did a fine job.
    The last cymbal I had that was cracked was welded which you can see in my cracked cymbal thread. It worked great and is holding strong. The best part was the cymbal did not need to be heated up with a torch before welding.

    Always appreciate the tutorials. Zach, what are the cymbal toppers you're using?

    those are the Cymbolt. They stay on the cymbal and allow for quick on and off.
