Here’s are some top tips on how to take care of your cymbals, and make sure they don’t break or crack.
Whether buying new cymbals or taking care of the ones that you’ve had for years, taking good care of your cymbals is of course important. So where to begin?

You get a keyhole effect on the cymbal which alters the note quality and is the beginning of the end of the cymbal which will break.
