LectertheChef: For some reason this reminded me of my garage band days, and the drummer who hit cymbals so hard he tore them apart at least once a month.
Skarekrough: LectertheChef: For some reason this reminded me of my garage band days, and the drummer who hit cymbals so hard he tore them apart at least once a month.Had the same experience with a drummer as well.We lived in Massachusetts and he got the bright idea to drive to the factory to return his broken cymbals.I was shocked when the next day at rehearsals he had brand new ones. I think they even upgraded him as well and told him not to hit so damned hard. They held together though.Major props for being good guys and helping out a bunch of local music rats.

poot_rootbeer: good_2_go: Rick Mercer visits SabianOne of the most incredible things about Sabian is that they'll make a custom cymbal for anyone, as long as the request is possible with their standard tooling and materials.A. Zildjian & Co. won't answer your calls until you've been on the cover of Modern Drummer at least twice.
