Polishing an old steel snare


Platinum Member
Clean the rust away with some vinegar,but don't let the drum soak for more than a half hour.Check it often,because if left too long,the vinegar will remove the chrome.

Rince completely and dry,and use Turtle wax chrome polish.This stuff also leaves a protective film.

I have an old turd that sounds like gold and I'd like to change its appearance a little bit to make it shine rather than looking like the old dog it is. It has some orange oxidation on the inside of the shell in one spot and the outside just looks well-used.

Pardon me for being obtuse but what can I use for this old steel banger?
