  • Enhances resonance and stick response
  • Complies with California “VOC” air quality and all safety regulatory requirements.
  • This is a nontoxic product that is less harmful than methanol alcohol.

Drummers and percussionists have had few choices when it comes to taking care of their vitally important cymbal collection.  Many commonly available cymbal care products contain polishes that will strip away everything on a cymbal’s surface, resulting in a very shiny polished finish and an unfortunately harsh, brittle sound quality. 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.

Patinas naturally occur 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 will remove excess grime for 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.

PROcussionCare’s micro-barrier conditioning technology removes embedded dirt and grime, leaving a micro-thin barrier to reduce surface tension for increased stick rebound and more sensitive cymbal response. Subtle overtones are improved, and the cymbal is able to cut through loud mixes with more projection and clarity. The cymbal wash becomes more present in recording, and bell sounds are clean and distinct. Ensure that your cymbals sound and look their best, include PROcussionCare® CymbalCare in your road case. Three sizes are ideal for use in the shop, on the road, or in the studio.

Cymbal Care Made Easy
Formulated especially for the high-impact demands of drums and percussion, PROcussionCare® CymbalCare 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 cracking and breakage. Recommended application is with a soft lint-free cloth. Includes an application tube to apply to difficult to reach areas. Product quickly dries to the touch for immediate use. Available in three sizes for rehearsal room, sound studio, or touring shows.

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, quickly covering the cymbal surface with black marks that are then transferred to drumheads and drums. These small oxidation deposits grow to eventually restrict the full vibration of cymbals and drums, and will eventually lead to destructive corrosion. PROcussionCare® CymbalCare 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.

PROCUSSIONCare® CymbalCare–Uniquely Effective, Environmentally responsible
PROCussionCare’s non-toxic formula is made expressly for use on all cymbals, and is silicone– and Teflon®–free. The proprietary formulation is the culmination of years of research and development in flex-film technologies, and has been a cornerstone of private label products since 1986.

Available in Aerosol and Liquid Trigger Spray
Sound Synergies aerosol products come standard with wide-angle spray cap and 5-inch extension straw for hard to reach areas. Our adjustable trigger sprayers are constructed of durable high-impact plastic and spun aluminum bottles. 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.  Click here for liquid trigger sprayer assembly instructions.
