ok so i was cleaning my cymbals and i wasnt thinking cause i was talking to a friend while doing it, when i realized that i had cleaned off the tarnish on my zxt trashformer. i got it for free so i wanted to experiment. does any one have any good ideas to re-tarnish the cymbal to get the trashiness back?
