At Gongs Unlimited, we use the Meinl Cymbal Cleaner to clean all our Chinese Gongs. Good stuff!
For cleaning Chinese gongs or other lathed gongs made of bronze, simply spray the cleaner on the surface and then wipe it off, to restore the original shine.
If you are cleaning Paiste, Meinl, or Tone of Life Gongs that are made of nickel silver, spray the cloth NOT THE GONG. The Meinl cleaner will remove the rainbow circle outside the face of the gong, the dark outer ring, and brighten the center. So unless you want to transform your gong into a brilliant gong, SPRAY THE CLOTH, not the gong.
