took bo's advise and am checking out ebay, looking for a zildjian A custom 16" crash. my question is; what is the difference between that cymbal and the A custom projection? is the projection louder? thanks
yeah i know, paying for a cracked cymbal (how silly of me) may of been a mistake but i was really wanting an 18" ride and thot if it realy sounds bad i could cut it down and then i'd have a 18er, the crack is on the outer edge and is about an inch and half so will have room to play with if i do cut it down. and i also remember my uncle alan used a cracked crash for a long time and i believe he stil has it. besides will have a cymbal i can experiment with. surely it can't be a complete disaster, can it ??? :0Hopefully it'll work out for you and not turn out to be a mistake.
I've bought cracked cymbals before, but only after hearing and seeing them in person and deciding I might be able to do something with them.
I wouldn't do it with an ebay purchase though.
