For the life of me I don't understand someone asking exorbitant prices for a cymbal that is so badly damaged it useless. I'm talking for example of a Paiste Signature 16" crash with a 6" crack along the lathe lines 2" below the bell.....and asking price is 65 dollars plus shipping. Or A Zildjian K 20" with 3 or 4 cracks running from the edge toward the bell ranging in length from 1 to 3 inches. Or a Sabian HH 18" crash with a crack along the lathe lines circling the entire cymbal leaving making it look like one of those weird Zildjian "accordian" cymbals. I understand trying to recoup some of the money you spent on these cymbals but when they're that badly damaged do you really expect to get more than 5 or 10 bucks? Geez. Price of scrap bronze is only $1.55 a pound. Dream cymbals will give you a dollar an inch trade on cracked cymbals. Reason I'm posting is, I was looking to buy damaged, unplayable cymbals to use as wind chimes, but not at $50 bucks or more each.
