Re: Solution for chrome parts

I use Dawn dishwashing liquid mixed with water. Usually let it soak over night. The results are amazing.

I checked my '77ish 5x14 Black Beauty tonight like we discussed. No stamp on mine at the muffler either. Same shell as yours just added black nickel. Love yours!

Re: Zildjian A "Hollow Block Stamp" (50s) 22"

Hollow Block 22's are my favorites. This one sounds just right. I've got some thin ones but my fave is around 2800 grams. It's a gem as is this 2198g version.
