As some of you know my paiste cymbals took one hell of a beating at a recent gig (check the post) and I have learned I can't seel 'em for much and I was wondering if there is a way to repair them! My 18 Paiste Signature full crash is in perfect condition other than the small dent one side, and my 19" Paiste RUDE Thin Crash has a inward bent middle hole as well as a somewhat deep scratch mark next to that, and deep gash one side.These cymbals are still completely new and I took care of it, after only a few months of having them.

just use them as they are. that sig should hold up fine and sound fine, I have one that's been cracked for at least 3 years that is still going strong. you spent a lot of money on those cymbals, no need to sell them right away because there's a tiny thing wrong. if they sound fine, use them as they are because modifying them will change the sound and it probably won't be for the better.

They are just battle scars. Helps to keep some memories. I hang all my old stuff up on my wall and tell stories attached to them. Eventually I plan to cover my studio wall.
As far as the cymbals go, as long as they sound good use them till the breack,(I still use one that I broke, it's like a splash.)

There's a difference between damaged and broken. To me, if a cymbal is cracked or dented, but still sounds good, it's not broken.
