It USUALLY almost all washes off. There will still be a little greenish tinge in places, but no corroded crusty patches. It's not for people who are precious about their gear that's for sure. Like if you're the type of person who's willing to grab a handheld drill, slap a cymbal on the ground and drill some rivets in it, you can probably also accepot that a little green in some lathe lines isn't gonna rot your cymbal away

Haha yeah tha't me, at one point I had drilled holes in almost everything I had. Backed off recently for some reason, maybe time to get some sharp bits and get back to work.

This probably should have been its own thread, but anyway, here are two different light modes on the camera taken tonight after a nice wipedown, and then what it looked like on tuesday afternoon.

I’ve been wanting to make a little stacker for awhile, and figured, at this time, was the perfect pairing. 80’s Zildjian splash (bottom), 2020 Wuhan china, top! :wink:

today -

18" Paiste Giant Beat thin crash .
Just picked one of these up today to add to my Giant Beat set. I'm digging it so far. I'll jam with the guys Wednesday for the first time in months and will see how it sounds.

These 2 beauties are now on the way to me.
Funch Cymbals 20" Spizzichino tribute (1862 gr) and 20" Vintage A vintage (1804 gr).
Nearly all my Zildjian rides are now sold, (I think only 2 or 3 remains) and been replaced with Funch. Can't wait to get my hands on these!
Wow, can't blame you for your lack of patience!

Just beautiful to look at and the sound is so buttery sweet! Someday I hope to have a ride like that. Play them well!

Might not seem particularly exciting, but after a lot of deliberation I just acquired a 22" Zildjian K ride. Thought I was more interested in some of the more unique K Custom models, but was looking for a versatile cymbal and found a crazy deal on Amazon Canada for a 22" K ride at more than $100 off the regular price. No fancy script, crazy discolouration or intense hammering, just a K ride.

So glad I took the gamble, as I've fallen head over heels for this cymbal. It fills in the gaps left by my other more "specialty" cymbals nicely, and is just heavy enough to have very clear and woody stick definition with a beautifully complex wash beneath. Hazelnut cinnamon creme may be tempting at times, but don't scorn vanilla folks, it's classic and a favourite for good reason.

I've been anxiously awaiting the arrival of this 20" Hand Hammered Jazz Ride. It should be here tomorrow morning! I had one years ago that was my favorite cymbal, but I stupidly sold it thinking I was done with drums... I've been longing for another one ever since then, and happened upon this one at just the right time. I'm hoping I'll love it just as much, if not even more than I did my old one.

i got a 22" from classic vintage drums. I went on a bit of a G.A.S. rampage.. got the 20" K @1767g, a 22" trans @ 2270g, a 20" A @1965g supposedly owned by Barrett Deems, and the one below. I can pic and choose which ones I will keep and sell one or two most likely... they are all winners though!!

That sounds KILLER! , and i love that snare tuning. That's legit I Love Lucy Ricy Ricardo stuff. Very nice playing/touch as well.

Well I've been working on getting to know it for the past few days, and I'm really liking it so far! It's absolutely nothing like the one I had previously, but it does sound beautiful. Very complex... Sweet and shimmery, but yet dark and smokey. I really like it with a bath chain on it as well.

I couldn't help myself. The 15 inch 2002's are my favorite hats by far. The chick is like a metranome next to me, and really has a unique sound i love.
I may have went a bit overboard with this, but if it's the 15 on steroids I'll be thrilled. Doubtful, but I hadn't bought a cymbal in a while..

No. I have a couple 17 2002's, a DE 17, as well as some other cymbals I'd like to try with it. If i can't get d sound i like, I'll get the top. I've been mixing, and matching different 14 Paistes of late, and really like some of the sounds
