    Oh wow...cool.
    Good thread...glad I could help.
    Tre - don't worry about the water being too hot.
    Remember your hands, even gloved, will have a tough time with temps above 70C/150F and water never gets above 100C/212F before turning to steam. Cymbals can handle more than 100C/212F.

    why would you use the copper cream instead of a brass cleaner. arent the majority of cymbals brass?

    No. Most cymbals are made of bronze.
    Bronze like brass, is an alloy of two or more metals.
    Bronze is primarily copper and tin.
    Brass is primarily copper and zinc, with both alloys often containing small amounts of other elements.

    great thread.

    I'd like to contribute, and warn some of you. NEVER clean Rudes with any cleaner if you don't want to change the way they look. the brown/green/orange coat goes away in no time. I washed my ride very carefully, with Paiste cleaner, and the color went away in a couple of seconds. just use soap and water to preserve the raw look. here's how my ride looks now, it's almost a reflector finish... hopefully I like it.



    and for the record, that's a pic of the cymbal when it was brand new.

    ^ I like the look of that cymbal. It still has that "raw" look to it, but it's definitely not the way RUDEs usually look. It's unique.
