Warranty Eligibility

Only instruments and products purchased as new from an authorized SABIAN dealer are covered by warranty. SABIAN will replace any instrument proven defective under normal use during the terms of this warranty, subject to appropriate inspection. However, damage resulting from accident, abuse or misuse is not covered by this warranty. Please use the following examples as a guide to cymbals NOT eligible for warranty replacement. Cymbals purchased for rental, backline, rehearsal or recording studio use are not eligible for warranty. If you are unsure whether your instrument qualifies for warranty replacement, please send a photograph to [email protected].

Examples Of Damage Not Eligible For Warranty Replacement

Broken around the center of the cymbal or small cracks around the center hole: caused by the cymbal being tightened down too hard on the cymbal stand.

Missing chunks from around the edge of the cymbal: SABIAN is unable to identify the cause of this type of damage.

Damage or warped outer edge: shows that a cymbal was dropped or fell over while on stand, and has been damaged by means other than playing.
