I have one only been through one set currently and that was because it was on my drummers set from when I was 5
My inability to retire cymbals is probably due to stick choice - 5A (now), 7A and 85A (past). I'm thinking about moving up to bigger sizes due to the contemporary stuff I want to play. And I'm finding heavier playing feels more therapeutic than light stuff. Maybe it's a temporary thing.No cymbal is crack-proof with enough force and playing style!
Cymbals are like girlfriends that keep piling up in the corner of the room.
