You know what, I have 2 cymbals but I like them reeeaally dirty. I dip them in syrup sometimes. And then freeze dry them. So when I rub the syrup off, it makes a clang sound. But if I want them clean, I get my home made groove juice and rub it all over them. Man! It feels good when they're clean but it is just so much work making home made groove juice.

Anyways if you want my secret home made recipe, then too bad its a secret! Tongue

It's good to swing around my cymbals after cleaning, out in the open air; after all, fresh air does you good, why not your cymbals?

My girlfriend absolutely loves my cymbals and enjoys playing with them. She's a guitarist but it doesn't stop her from being a keen cymbal enthusiast. But obviously being a guitarist she doesn't have any herself so she has to borrow mine which funnily enough she enjoys scrubbing them more than me.

But what I really enjoy is to scrub the drumstick. I know most of you might not like to use a drumstick with your cymbals but its so much fun to play with and my girlfriend loves to use mine with her guitar as well. Sometimes she uses my drumstick as chopsticks. I love it when she does that. It feels good to watch her lick the noodles off my drumstick.

Please be kind to your cymbals. Play with them sometimes, dip them in syrup and swing them around in the open air. (Your girlfriend will love it)

I don't know if it's possible to clean cymbals without removing logos. I use a product called "Nevr-Dull." It does remove logos, but it also removes dirt and tarnish with a lot less effort than Brasso.
