Here's the 1961 Super Classic shells I've been posting about, all cleaned up and ready for re-assembly. I used Windex to clean the shells, #0000 stell wool soaked in PB Blaster (a rust remover) for the hardware. When everything was cleaned up and put back together, I polished everything with Meguiar's Cleaning Wax. The wraps were faded and gross - now they are gorgeous. The hardware was covered with rust and marine-air deposits (stored near the ocean for a long time). I think the difference is amazing. Scroll down a little in this thread to see the before and after of the snare drum. I used the wax on the Supraphonic shell as well - made it shine like the top of the Chrysler Building!

Here's the 22X14 bass drum.
