OK, cymbals are an addiction(as well as any other drums-connected gear :wink: ). Each one sounds different. I have bought 3 in the past 6 months. What do you tell your wife/husband/mother/father when you come home with another? I have to hide money in my Bass drum case to fund additional ones. Oh what we have to do!

I would rather be addicted to buying cymbals, which I am when I have the money, then to be addicted to other things.. :wink: :wink:

Fortunately I don't have to explain myself to anyone. I just have to be able to look myself in the mirror the next morning. :P It's true. Maybe we should start a support group. lol

I say that it's my money and I do whatever I want with it :)

It is more than a metaphor:
It is a physical experience as real as any other.

Seems pretty fail-safe to me... Unless of course they're a drummer. But in that case, they would understand the addiction :lol:

i just say its suporrting a good habit.
my parents could care less. and my girlfriend loved it in the end.

so dont be afraid to buy cymbals around your wife/mom/dad/girlfriend. just explain, its nessesary to " better" your drumming capabilities.

My dad asks me why I buy so many cymbals and my response is the same every time. " Why is it that you have bought so many guns?" and he tends to not ask again for a while. lol. Everybody has their passion.

my dad doesnt usually ask...he used to buy and sell guitars like crazy so he understands. my mom always asks and my response is "my other ones were crap" and she usually leaves it alone. the last time i bought cymbals i spent $500 and came home with 4 new cymbals so its not really something i could hide.
