idiot?? I challenge you to a drum battle duel on this site! haha are you up for it??
Well, I bought the cymbal "new" on ebay and it didn't come with any warranty information but I'll check it out anyhow.
I didn't put epoxy on it yet but I'm considering because the crack is pretty small..
Anyway, I checked out the zildjian
site... here are the cymbal care instructions:
Follow these 4 easy guidelines to ensure a long life for your Zildjian
1. Play It Right
Avoid striking cymbals directly on their edge. Crash cymbals, especially, should be hit with a glancing blow, a little off center. Striking with a slight twist of the wrist also helps avoid breakage and allows crash cymbals to “open up.”
2. Choose the Right Cymbal
The sound quality of a Zildjian
cymbal is determined by its alloy content, size, shape, hammering and lathing pattern. Trying to force a cymbal to produce volume beyond its range can cause breakage. There are Zildjian
cymbals for every style of music. Match your cymbal to your specific needs.
3. Protect Your Investment
Always carry your cymbals in a padded cymbal bag or a protective cymbal case.
Store your cymbals immediately whenever you break down your drumset.
When cymbals are not in use for prolonged periods of time, wrap cymbals separately with a piece of cloth to protect their edges and surfaces; be especially careful of the bottom edge.
Keep your cymbals away from extreme cold or heat.
4. Set-Up Basics
Avoid Metal-to-Metal Contact
Place a sturdy nylon or rubber sleeve around the cymbal tilter rod when mounting your cymbals to prevent center hole deformation and cracking. Always use top and bottom felts.
Keep It Loose
Do not over-tighten the wing nut. This can cause cracks around the center hole. Also, a clamped cymbal will not vibrate freely and often sounds choked. For HiHats, keep the clutch medium-tight so that the top cymbal moves freely.
