    I'm somewhat hesitant to getting a new trash crash; had the 18" ZHT Trash Crash a few years back (sound AWESOME by the way!), but it developed a crack in one of the 'slots' and had it replaced under warranty. And yup, the replacement had the exact same crack after a week or 7. Wasn't over-tightning the cymbal or bad technique. Replaced that one as well and sold the replacement after that. But i've been flirting with the idea of getting the 20" and placing it on my left side next to my main crash (where normally the 16" china is).

    I use mine quite a bit with no issues thus far. I’ve had mine for few months now. And for the price, I paid $100 new for mine.

    I never had the Zildjians, but I had the same issue with my Sabian "O-zones" - an AAX splash and an APX crash. As much as I love the trashier sound, I refuse to go back to anything like that. They latest multiple years, but none of my other cymbals have ever had cracking issues.

    That's really neat. What was the reason for cutting it down? Was it cracked? Or were you going for an Aquiles Priester vibe?

    Very nice. Here's my throwback counterpoint to your electronics.


    I picked this rig up as we had a full slate of outdoor shows this summer. It was still in the band van when I posted the rest of my gear shots the other day. So for the sake of completion, I took a few shots today.
