In this paper we prove that the non-cyclic generic abelian crossed product p-algebras constructed by Amitsur and Saltman in [S.A. Amitsur, D. Saltman, Generic Abelian crossed products and p-algebras, J. Algebra 51 (1) (1978) 76-87] remain non-cyclic after tensoring by any prime to p extension of their centers. We also prove that an example due to Saltman of an indecomposable generic abelian crossed product with exponent p and degree p2 remains indecomposable after any prime to p extension.
