I'm putting the heads and wires aWAY. There is just so much corrosion on them. I'm only cleaning NOT restoring!trixonian said:I agree you should give careful consideration to how much cleaning you do. Personally I might do nothing, or I might just wipe everything down. Also, unless you're playing it why change the heads?
Cool... learn something new every day.ludwignut said:That is an uncatalogued Green Cortex .I saw one at jacks Drum Shop in Boston in the mid 90s . I have been looking for one ever since but they are elusive .
Looks a lot better IMHO. I don't know if this was ever mentioned... but is this a 5 or 6.5 inch snare?DolFan54 said:Here the drum is in it's new resting place on top of my snare drum cabinet. I had to clean this one as much as I wish I could've just placed it from the box to the shelf. I left all the battle scars and the dirt that is deep into the shell. I basically just gave her a bath! There was so much corrosion on the collar hoops that I needed to replace the heads. The wires also needed replacing as they were bent far beyond their means.
