Melamine: Just cleaned the kit.


Senior Member
Just cleaned my kit so I thought I would comment out loud.

Melamine sponges, commonly sold as Mr. Clean Magic Erasers, will make dirty coated Ambassador drum heads look like new again, in seconds, with just a little water. They also take the black bronze cymbal residue off the drumstick tips so the heads stay cleaner for longer.

No name versions of melamine sponges are very inexpensive on Amazon.

A mist of Pledge on microfiber towels seems to be fine for everything else, chrome, shells cymbals etc.
