Having spent so much money on high-end cymbals - I have tried to maintain their finish as best as possible without using any abrasive cymbal cleaners. Over time, finger prints and dirt can dull the sound of cymbals and affect their visual appearance. Cymbal Sox have helped me retain the brilliance, response, and beauty that I expect and require from my cymbals.
