Picked up these two 8 lug tama snares for 20 euros each. Apparently they are decent drums with heavy seamless steel shells.

In rough enough shape with rust/pitting etc etc and the 6.5 one is missing a badge but everything seems structurally sound with them.

I'm guessing car chrome cleaner is the job for them ? Did I do ok?

I had a couple of those, for the price you paid they're really nice drums, I just couldn't fall in love with them no matter what heads I used and how I tuned them, they were just hard to control. Diecast hoops helped a little bit.

After a good clean they both look much better and sound great.
