Default Re: is it possible to fix cracked cymbals

As stated above, you can make a repair to stop the crack from getting any worse, but in reality once a cymbal is cracked, there is no way to "repair" it back to the way it was. If you try the drill the crack at each end method, it should stop the crack from spreading. However, the sound may be changed not to your liking permanently now that it has cracked. If it's no longer to your sound liking, you can still get something for it. There seems to be a niche market on ebay for broken and cracked cymbals. People buy them for "effects" cymbals......
