Yeah but he got a cymbal with tape residue on it. How would one tell if it was actually Duck residue or duct residue?

Does it quack or what?

Just Lick the Cymbal would be my bet... You should know by the taste if it's duck or not...

Ancient resurrect warning. That tape residue will have had 6 more years of solidifying.

Just wrap the entire cymbal in duct tape.....problem solved. You'll never see that nasty residue.

What's the difference between Duck tape and duct tape?

Acetone is probably the most effective, but if the flamability bothers you, I've had very good luck with just plain old mineral spirits.
