I think it would be fine as well if the whole cymbal was like that. But the way it is now looks weird.I never liked the look of brilliant cymbals but that's just me.
I kinda like the look of the stains, like if the entire cymbal were like that.
Factory defect pretty sure, you'll get them replaced.
No problems.Good to hear your experience. My 15" is an x-plosion crash and doesn't have the issue. I too should have gotten it all in the natural finish. Too late!
JDA suggested the Sabian cleaner in an earlier post but I've read 50/50 opinions about it. I guess I might try it hearing that you had some success.
It's all good. I really thought you were joking. At least someone likes the look. Maybe they should sell them that way as an option.No harm meant. Never owned that brand cymbal- but never liked recorded sound. Just having a little fun - all good-but I really do like how they look!
All the big makers coat their cymbals, at least the brilliant finished ones. Otherwise they would start oxidizing from fingerprints already when they are handled at the shops, and they would be much harder to sell.But anyway /whether there is a Spray Coat...I'm not sure that's what's going on here with the discoloration.
that 's what I was referring to.I've had issues with their brilliant finish in the past.
They'll send you a UPS shipper tag and reapply the finish
I'm just gonna wait for Sabian to write back as see what they recommend before I do anything else.I thought there would be something on the FAQ sabian page (then saw it was written by Bermuda)
but..I read nothing about a 'coating' (as mentioned by a member in a post above) and I didn't really/actually advocate or push Polish I just imagined that would be Sabian 1st response (I have no idea)
But anyway /whether there is a Spray Coat...I'm not sure that's what's going on here with the discoloration.
Weird. The reason I ask is the staining looks like it could almost be an area that was rubbed or wasn't rubbed with something. I own a lot of sabians and have never seen anything like that.Yes, a california duster which is microfiber. Problem is I haven't had them long enough to even do the first dusting. They were crystal clean when this started happening.
Yep, weird! The cymbals are a couple months old and haven't been cleaned with anything.Weird. The reason I ask is the staining looks like it could almost be an area that was rubbed or wasn't rubbed with something. I own a lot of sabians and have never seen anything like that.
