could you borrow a neighbor's scale or something? If you could even roughly estimate the weight we could check the shipping costs online, but without knowing the gram weights of those cymbals there's just too much room for error to get you a reliable figure.
Sounds like it could be kinda heavy.

The last shipment of cymbals I received was about $20 for 4 cymbals

It's gonna be pricey if you send them all at once. Unless you stagger them, it's gonna cost you.
stagger them? what does that mean? If i were to package them in say 4 different boxes would it be cheaper then putting al that in 2 boxes? i really have NO CLUE how much it costs to ship things. and they said they offer " a discount on shipping" i dont even know what they means. the trade offer already includes return shippin gin the us. I'm sorry if i kinda sound like an idiot right now. i really dont know what the hell i'm doing

Send them in at least a couple boxes.

I'll put the hardware in 1 box and the cymbals in either 2 or 3 other boxes. my brother works at a pizza place so maybe i'll get him to hook it up with some boxes

Definitely keep an eye on the weight. If you go over a certain weight, the package becomes "oversized" according to the shippers regulations, and price skyrocket. With that much to ship, it's not going to be super cheap to ship them. 20 cymbals will weigh approx. 50 to 75 lbs, plus another 20 to 25 lbs worth of hardware. I would say budget $50 to $100 for shipping. Could be a little more or less depending on the carrier and method used.
