sabian, I’ve got a bone to pick with you.

Yeah it gets really frustrating sometimes. I work really hard, and so does everyone on my line, and 90% of the time it goes unnoticed. But I just remember that I’m doing this for me not for the recognition. I’m just trying to have fun before I’m too old.
If it’s just a touch up job I would use windex but make sure you stay away from the logos because they will come off and redrawing them is damn near impossible.
To clean cymbals you need brass polish or cymbal polish. Brass polish is easy enough to find. You take a VERY VERY SMALL amount on your fingers and rub it into the brass until it turns a grey/green color. Then grab a t shirt or an old rag that you don’t mind getting ruined and rub in small circles with hard pressure until shiny sparkly.
if your cymbals are really old you can try running water over them to get any excess dirt or rust off, but honestly they may not shine up well. If you use too much polish you’ll only make them look worse so be careful.
