I'm not very knowledgeable on drum sticks, so I usually just use the ones with the plastic heads. After using them, my previously brand new cymbals had white marks all over them, obviously from hitting. Duh.
Are there any techniques or products that will remove these marks?
Also, the cymbals are starting to show spots where the color is fading. No, these cymbals are not Pearl, they are Zildjian. Still, the spots are darker than the actual cymbal color. Is this usual? I have a window in front of my drums; could those spots be from the sun?
