We want your used, broken, ugly cymbals!


Like many drummers, you're probably sitting on a stack of used or cracked cymbals - hey, it happens. Good news: we'll pay you for them. We'll take those cymbals off your hands and pay you in-store credit towards the purchase of new cymbals.

We send your old cymbals up to Canada, where Dream Cymbals recycles them into raw material to become new again - the first program of its kind!

Any cymbal made of B20 bronze alloy (sometimes called 'bell bronze') is worth $2 per inch; all other cymbals (except brass) are worth $1 per inch. If you're not sure what your cymbals are made of, just Contact Us and we'll tell you.

As if that wasn't enough, we'll pay the shipping cost to get your old cymbals to us. (valid only in contiguous United States)
