Re: My new Istanbul Mehmet Samatya Cymbals (pics)
As we all know, all cymbals (can) crack. And they crack mostly because of pilot error/hitting them too hard/wrong, sometimes due to manufacturing issues. I assume you know how to handle them so I wouldn't worry. Plus, thin cymbals tend to sound great (from my limited experience) so once again, I think you're going the right way.
I suggest if they crack - send them over to me, I'll send you 5 Euros (and either "repair" them or modify them into anything useable), haha. Just kidding, I'll send you 10 Euros ;-)
[Honestly I'll be glad to help you with repairs/modifications if wanted/needed.]
Here's that china as it came - that pic is just to shock you, haha. But it's true, that material is quite thin.
