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.
Luckily at this point my cymbals are fine, but if i do smash 'm into sudden death i will look you up! We are neighbors at least, so be careful what you promise!

Dear goodness, i covered my mouth when i saw that. Was that the result of Donkey Kong playing the drums?
