    Default Dang it, I Cracked my 18" HHX legacy last night : (

    My own fault I think I got carried away during a blink 182 song and the crowd was really into it and I started crashing 1/4 notes straight on instead of swiping. No need to tell me you been playing death metal for 50 years and have never cracked a cymbal, I get it. I took it to DCP today and they are contacting Sabian to see if they can get it warrantied for me. Sabian has a 2-year warranty and I bought this set about 13 months ago but they said it depends on the placement and type of crack so fingers crossed.

    Hope the warrantee covers it. If not, maybe you could send it my way for a welding attempt. Looks like a good few inches into that thing.
    You just cover all shipping and I’ll get it welded. You can give a review of what you think of it.

    Never broke a cymbal in 65 years of playing. Exactly how hard do people hit them? I mean that you are supposed to hit them but not Bruce Lee your way through them.

    I'm shocked it made it with the delivery address all blacked out. Impressive.

    You tease us with this. Open the #%^* thing already! Also, did you have to turn in the cracked one? If not, pm me, send it my way if you want to try it for a welding. I asked about this earlier but did not understand a clear yes or no. Anyway, why not try it?
    All the best.

    They are not labeled as thin or medium etc, but they are thin and light. Great sound, I get a lot of compliments on the sound of all my cymbals. Oh and I had to give that cracked cymbal back to Sabian
