I’ve removed all the labels from my cymbals; most are just plain ugly. I mix and match cymbals; I have Sabian, vintage A’s, Agop and Spizzichinos in my setup. Gradually, they are attracting the patina I like.
Most of the cymbals made today are mass produced, machine made and machine lathed/hammered and built for the masses. These are not likely candidates for a healthy financial ROI. On the other hand, custom, hand lathed and hammered cymbals can be great candidates for investments. Just look at the prices of Spizzichino cymbals in the last year to confirm that first rate hand crafted cymbals by a true artisan can be a good investment. Craig Lauritsen is another cymbal maker who has my respect and is making first class cymbals.
