Brasso will not break down the alloy. Where the hell did you get that B.S. from?

Brasso is not only for brass. You could use it on 100% copper if you want. Your cymbal is 92% copper. I use it on my B-20 which is 80% copper; not that different. And with good results.

Not if you follow exactly what I told you here it won't. But if you skip even one step, then what results from that is on you.

Arrested?

On what charge?

An un-lacquered B-8 cymbal impersonating a B-20? Is that on the books as a felony or something?

Cymbals are known for getting a bit hi hat, going on a ride and crashing.

IF i want to clean them i ONLY use paiste cymbal cleaner.
Yours may not be coated if they're from the pre-lacquered era. I'm not an authority on Giant Beats, but I know that the early 602's were not coated, but that the later ones were. So his unlike yours might be coated.

my understanding is Paiste started coating the cymbals in 1972. If your GB is a preserial then it won't have the coating.
