    Steal them. I hear that's pretty cost effective.

    Short of stealing them, I have had good luck with Used Guitars, Used Drums, Used Amps, Used Cymbals | Music Go Round. Over 1/2 of my cymbals came from them, used, but in great condition.

    Get a job as an editor for a paper, you might have a talent for it.

    And then buy the symbols with money from said job.

    I wish there were some sort of way to get gear for cheap, but outside of endorsements, we are all in the same money-hogging boat.
