I just bought this product one day ago and i have used it once on all of my cymbals. I learned pretty quickly that this product doesnt work very well with natural finishes. My Sabian B8 hi hat cymbals (havent gotten around to updating yet), which have pretty bad oxidation and staining on them, werent helped at all by using this. All it did was strip off the color in some parts, and make it worse. I also used this on my Sabian APX crash and it took off the cool kind of rainbow-y finish they had at some parts, and it didnt do too much to take off the dirt. I also used this on my Paiste ride, and it helped it shine more, but it didnt remove the dirt that has accumulated in the grooves of the cymbal (this could be because they use a special gloss finish that cant be cleaned unless you buy the paiste brand cleaner). However, i used this product on my AAX crash and china, and it was amazing. It took the smudges and discoloration and fingerprints off immediately. It even worked great on some brilliant finish zildjians that i have that were in pretty bad shape as well. So, i would strongly recommend this for cymbals with brilliant finishes, but not at all for those without.

Okay I play Sabian cymbals, and obviously why not buy the Sabian Cymbal Cleaner right? Well, yea I did, and after the second time using it, I encountered a tragic problem. The cymbals turn orange!! I mean it almost looks like grease on your cymbals. It not only "oranged" up my brilliant finish, but my XS20 ride and crash. I know Mike Portnoy's uses this, so I mean you wouldn't think it has any problem as big as this right? Think again, don't buy this. As honest conclusion I can give.

not that great.

By Mitch Ruibal

from Ponchatoula, LA

Comments about Sabian Cymbal Cleaner:

If you have brilliant finish sabian cymbals I recommend you not get this unless you feel like cleaning your cybmals every month because the cleaner turns them orange. It cleans cymbals very well but its like they put something in it to turn your cymbals orange. Better get about 5 bottles.

Sabian Cymbal Cleaner

By Drummerboy15

from Des Moines, IA

Comments about Sabian Cymbal Cleaner:

The Sabian Cymbal Cleaner is perfect for anyone who has a cymbal. This cleaner cleans away fingerprints, hard-to-clean dirt, and dust. It can clean things that water can't get out. This is great to have because this Sabian Cymbal cleaner polishes and cleans cymbals at the same time. This is why the Sabian Cymbal Cleaner is perfect for any musician that owns any cymbals!

Amazing product for the road!

By Ian

from Chicago, IL

Comments about Sabian Cymbal Cleaner:

I am a drum tech for a nationally touring band, and I use this cymbal cleaner on my drummer's cymbals every day. Not only is it very easy to clean off, but it does an amazing job at making the cymbals shine and look brand new every day. Even using it as much as I do, I can still make a bottle last 2-3 weeks. I highly recommend this for any drummer.

Great for removing fingerprinting and light dirt.

By CK

from Irvine, CA

Comments about Sabian Cymbal Cleaner:

I just ran through a bottle of this while cleaning all of my cymbals. It is great for "light" cleaning, when your cymbals are showing fingerprinting and minor dirt. It has some power and you'll know there is something working if you make the mistake of using it in an enclosed room. The fumes are really strong. My recommendations: 1) Make sure you spray the cymbal surface until it is COMPLETELY WET. You can take a glove or squeegie to push the cleaner into little areas that you missed but make sure you cover the entire surface until it is totally wet. If you leave dry areas, they will show as a darker color after you wipe off the cleaner. No bueno. It will remove a light layer of your logos, but not the entire label. Just be gentle when going over your logos and you should be fine. 2) Leave it on for 20 or 30 seconds or so but DO NOT LET IT DRY on the cymbal. 3) Have 2 cloths ready for wiping - a big terry cloth towel for getting most of the wetness off, then a second soft towel for light buffing once the cymbal is mostly dry. I also use 2 for laying the cymbal on while cleaning, then another for the buffing phase. 4) Once the cymbal is dry, give it a second very light buff and you should see any residual product come off, giving a slightly better shine. This product didn't remove real corrosion or heavy aging - try Groove Juice for that.

Terrible

Best one so far!

By Darin

from Bend, OR

Comments about Sabian Cymbal Cleaner:

After 35 years of playing, cleaning cymbals has always been a pet peeve. Have tried everything you can imagine, from 409 to Easy Off oven cleaner. For older, extremely dirty cymbals, you probably need a good brass/copper cleaner. After that, this stuff does wonders. It does require ventilation and 30 seconds of waiting after spraying before wiping but that's it. Great stuff!

it doesn't turn orange....

By Pedro

from Los Angeles, CA

Comments about Sabian Cymbal Cleaner:

it doesn't turn my cymbals orange, but, watch out for the logos, it removes them! for them not to turn orange, you have to dry them very well, don't leave a single drop of the cleaner in the cymbal

Read instructions!

By Dusty Cox

from Salem Oregon

Comments about Sabian Cymbal Cleaner:

I have had no problem with discoloring or etching of my cymbals. Does not work too well on the Sabian Paragon series. But, if you put the old brasso to them, then use this product they come out factory new looking! Just make sure you follow the bottle instructions and wipe it TOTALLY off. Creates a brilliant finish!
