    Cleaning Black Beauty snare shell?

    I have been searching Google and this forum for days, and I can't seem to locate an answer. I recently purchased a Ludwig Black Beauty snare (large Monroe badge, 5x14, tube lugs, P85) used, and the finish seems kind of inconsistent or spotty. Hard to describe, but I think think I saw someone...
