How to order:

If you see a particular model you're interested in, send us an email inquiry by following our Contact Us! link, or send an email to me, You may also give me a call at the shop: 315-525-6388. International orders, dial: +1-315-525-6388. Phone hours are 8-5 M-F, EST. Emails are answered as quickly as possible, (usually within minutes), well outside these hours, and on all weekends/holidays, and is the best way to contact me. Cymbals are first come, first served, and site updates are up to the minute. If it doesn't say sold, it is still available. 

If you're submitting your order through email, tell me what you'd like to purchase along with the shipping destination and postal code, and I'll send you a total including shipping, as well as a checkout link for purchase. I generally am able to respond within minutes unless I am recording a new batch of cymbals. I do my absolute best to keep shipping costs as low as possible.

Update - 06/29/18 - Parts of the site are now shopping cart enabled. Use these buttons if you like, or call/email me!

When I receive your payment, I will send you a confirmation email, as well as a shipping/tracking number. International orders are welcome!

Shipping rates are individually calculated per transaction based on your zip code and package weight. All domestic and international packages Monday through Saturday are shipped the same day via USPS if your order is received before 2:00-ish PM EST. Saturday orders after 2:00 PM EST, and all Sunday orders are shipped the following Monday morning. All shipments to Italy MUST have full insurance. No whining, no crying - they simply must. All other destinations, it is up to you, and is available separately.

Track shipments here. Please be aware that USPS tracking information, although much better than it used to be, can sometimes be more confusing that it's helpful - that's normal - so keep that in mind when viewing their tracking info! For international shipments, there will be a period of time when the package will appear as if it is "stuck" in the US - it is not! Packages are scanned when they depart the US, and then again AFTER they clear customs in your country. NOT when they arrive. The period of time where it appears stuck in the US, is actually the time it is spending in customs in your country awaiting clearance. I repeat, packages are scanned AFTER they clear customs, NOT when they arrive there. This is normal - your package is not lost. :)

Return Policy:

Because you can hear the actual cymbal before purchase, returns are pretty rare; however, if when you receive the cymbal, and it's not to your liking, I will offer to swap it out for something else, (or store credit) for a period NOT EXCEEDING 7 days. This is strictly enforced. The customer is only responsible for extra shipping charges. There are no service charges nor restocking fees. (This excludes used cymbals, closeouts, cymbals sent to international destinations, anything on sale or at sale pricing, custom/special orders, and anything that's been custom riveted, or put on layaway. These pieces are not returnable.)

*New York state residents are required to pay 8 % sales tax. All sales to Indonesia and Africa must use Western Union as the sole payment option, and will only ship via UPS, expedited delivery.

CymbalsOnly is web only, and is not open to the public. No local pickups.
