    It actually goes very quickly once I'm all set up. To clean all of my cymbals I have up on the kit (currently 19), it usually takes 1.5-2 hours, maybe a little less. Smaller cymbals only take a couple minutes, while bigger ones take about 5-7 minutes each.

    Thanks Mike! I swear I replied to your question previously, but I don't see it... so here it goes. I have a wash-tub in the laundry room... so I use it for cleaning and rinsing. I use diluted cymbal cleaner, either the old Sabian spray or Kick'N Brass, but they are both discontinued now. When I run out of them, I'm going to Groove Juice... recommended by Chris at Drums on Sale. I use 1 bottle of cleaner to 2 bottles of water. I also use a foaming sprayer, but I'm still working on finding the perfect one. I spray both sides of the cymbal and work the cleaner all around with a soft towel. After I think both sides have been cleaned by the acid, I rinse the cymbal thoroughly and dry the cymbal with several towels. Each towel drier than the next. After cleaning 20 cymbals, the third drying towel is still pretty dry, which means I'm drying the cymbals pretty thoroughly. That's it. I used Groove Juice during my visit to Drums on Sale, and I can say it is far less caustic than the old Sabian spray or Kick'N Brass... those two products gave off fumes that were very difficult to tolerate.

    Thanks TM... that's only (literally) half of it. I would post my full collection here, but it's 14 pics... and I don't want to have to make 4 posts for that (only 4 pics per post).

    Could you describe the bath process? Clearly your method works.

    Anyone ever seen this before: spotted a pair of Dyno Beat's while scrolling through eBay, but I've never seen any with additional vent holes before. Nothing in the description about them being custom (or about them at all) and looking at the pics, although hard to tell as they're not the highest res, they don't look home-made

    Sound good - trashy and cutting, pretty much what you'd expect when you think about it!

    Nice, if you decide to do a quick demo video of it next time you're at the kit, I'd love to hear it

    Exactly- Old Z Splash 12" on a Oriental China Trash 14" as stack
