I washed my cymbals with just a wet towel and soap and it made them come up with these little green dots everywhere!
is there any way i can get rid of them or have I ruined my new cymbals. -.-

Try never dull or any other type of cymbal cleaner. It dont come clean over night, it takes some work and time!

Never dull isn't a cymbal cleaner I worded it wrong, but it does an outstanding job. Sorry for the confusion....

It may be oxidization. Something that just happens to cymbals over time. They don't effect sound quality, so I wouldn't really worry about it.

Don't sweat it. It never effects sound so you should be fine, unless you plan on going to a photoshoot with those cymbalsTongue I own a Zildjian K Dry Ride. THAT is an ugly cymbal. It's completely oxidized.

Another reason cymbals can turn green is if you touch them too much. Cymbals and the oils on your fingers dont like eachother. I know this because the older marching cymbals at my school look like they have a coat of throw up on them.
