    Default Paiste PSTX Durability Report.

    Hello Everyone,

    Just want to start off by saying that I've been playing the same set of Zildjian A Custom cymbals for nearly 20 years now and none of them are cracked. I've also been using an A custom 18" EFX for the past 5 years and it hasn't cracked (so we can't blame this on cutouts).

    I bought two cymbals from the PSTX range. 14" Swiss Flanger Stack, and 18" Swiss Thin Crash. The stack developed a crack just after the 2 year warranty was up. The crash developed a crack after 18 months. Both are on the inside of one of the outer cutouts going towards the edge. I will be taking the crash in next week to see if they will replace it under warranty.

    Just wanted to give a heads up to potential buyers.
