I have to agree with you on this one. Cymbals are like fine wine the older the better. However if you are going for the look alone Nano polish works great.

I like my cymbals to be nice and dirty. I know the shiney stuff looks pretty, but it's not worth the hassle to me.

I have used Flitz in the past and it cleaned them really well, but the labels came off.

Be careful though, I've heard horror stories of a couple people seriously damaging their cymbals using some of those weird cleaners.

Buckaroo cymbal cleaner is awesome, but smells awful. It always gets the job done.

Start with Wenol. It is the least abrasive and the easiest to use. Finish up with a coat of Kleen Guard (.99 at Wal-mart) on everything, Drums, Cymbals and Hardware.
