The Ultimate Cymbal Cleaner & Conditioner
Drummers and percussionists have had few choices when it comes to taking care of their vitally important cymbal collection. Many commonly available cymbal cleaners and care products contain abrasive polishes that will strip away everything on a cymbal’s surface including natural patina. This results in a very shiny polished finish with and an unfortunately harsh, brittle sound quality. The oxidation process starts all over again once the bare metal surfaces remain without protection.
CymbalCare Cymbal Cleaner & Conditioner keeps your cymbals and gongs protected, looking fresh, and at optimal performance. CymbalCare is designed to gently lift and remove dust and grime away without damaging the cymbal’s patina, surface features that are the result of a cymbal’s natural aging process.

Natural and Factory Forged Patinas are Protected
Patinas occur naturally on metal surfaces as the result of age and reaction with environmental gases. Not to be confused with harmful corrosion that actually deteriorates metal surfaces. Artificial patinas and “stenciling” can also be induced by chemical application or by other means.

Patina caused by normal aging or factory forged patina as shown in the above image is vital to cymbals’ sound quality and characteristics. CymbalCare cymbal cleaner and metal conditioner will remove corrosion and excess grime from an attractive natural buffed finish that does not affect the patina. The cymbal’s natural tonal spectrum and rich overtones are restored, enhancing sticking definition and response.
No More Black Oxidation Mess on Cymbals and Drums!
Music repair and rental shops, through interaction with drummers and percussionists, are all too familiar with oxidation – it’s the process that causes messy black build-up on cymbals. Oxidation builds up quickly covering the cymbal surface with black marks that are then transferred to drum heads and drums.
This is often referred to as “stick tip transfer”. These small oxide deposits grow to eventually restrict the full vibration of cymbals and drums, and will eventually lead to destructive corrosion.
PROcussionCare® CymbalCare cymbal cleaner and metal conditioner is a new product engineered to prevent the formation of black oxidation while also conditioning and cleaning the cymbal surface of extraneous marks and fingerprints.

- Restores and conditions cymbal surfaces without harsh chemicals, strippers or harmful polishes
- Conditions cymbals surfaces to resist micro fracturing and cracking
- Preserves natural and factory forged patina for natural sound
- Will not remove stenciling and is safe for all finishes
- Enhances resonance and stick response
- Reduces stick tip oxide transfer
Cymbal Care Made Easy
Formulated especially for the high-impact demands of drums and percussion, PROcussionCare® CymbalCare cymbal cleaner & metal conditioner is the result of research into micro-lubricants for demanding ballistics applications. With an unprecedented ability to penetrate and lift away deeply embedded grime and tiny debris particles.
ProcussionCare ensures that your cymbal’s vibration and response is unrestricted. A micro-thin barrier lubricant coating remains after treatment to resist sticking impact, promote enhanced tone, and protect cymbals from micro-cracks and breakage.
Recommended application is with a soft lint-free cloth. Product quickly dries to the touch for immediate use. Available in three sizes for rehearsal room, sound studio, or touring shows.
Sound Synergies aerosol products come standard with wide-angle spray cap and 5-inch extension straw for hard to reach areas. Our non-aerosol products come with an adjustable trigger sprayer constructed of durable high-impact plastic attached to spun aluminum bottle.
All rubber plugs and gaskets are made from rugged, long lasting Viton® (fluorocarbon rubber) which has excellent resistance to high temperatures, ozone, oxygen, mineral oil, synthetic hydraulic fluids, fuels, aromatics and many organic solvents and chemicals.
