Will any of these methods work well on a smooth ebony head? I’ve been concerned that Goo Gone or similar might remove the gloss too.
I evenly apply it with a clean cloth, I leave it for a minute then remove it with another clean cloth. Then I use a third clean cloth to finely buff it. Easy & quick! This stuff is more like a cream and not like the paste stuff that gets hard if you leave it on to long.Cool, I'll try it. Do you put it on, wait a bit, and then buff, or do you buff it off almost immediately?
Do head logo's cheese you guys out? They never bothered me.
Now kittens on the other hand...
Interesting how everyone likes different things. I've never heard anyone not like the drum brand on the front. When I got my Ludwig's and said I'd change the factory heads, everyone said to not remove the reso head because the Ludwig logo looked good. I would never remove it because I agree that it looks classic. The bigger it is, the more I like it!Yes. Especially on front BD heads with the drum brand logo on it. If Evans or Remo started making heads with no logo, I'd switch immediately and even pay more for the heads.
I wouldn't mind if it was a tiny text along the edge of the head (like, 15pt "Remo USA Coated Ambassador"), but the logos are too big and ugly.
Yeah. I think i scrubbed too hard on the first try. Basically sanded off the coating.Acetone can be used to remove the logo from coated head also. BUT you have to be fast and careful. I did it many times with no damage to coating or head.
I soak slightly cotton pad with acetone (from pharmacy, not hardware store) and then touch logo and try to wipe it but every time I do it - I immediately WIPE the acetone out from the head and repeat the process with next clean pad. Basically you leave the acetone for seconds. Then it’s good to wipe the removed logo area with damp cloth or paper towel and then dry with another cloth.
You need approx 4-5 rounds to wipe the logo completely.
The method does not work on fiberskyn type heads.
