      That is a bummer that the finish was compromised. Beautiful drums. My new kit (not Pearl), had been collecting a lot of dust. It IS winter and I am running the heat pretty religiously. But it almost seems like a dust magnet. I may do the same thing and simply take apart and polish them.

      Can't wait to see the new cans!!!!

        The easiest way to keep your drums clean is a feather duster. It gets in to all the tight spots easily and you can clean them off in 20 seconds. Super easy. But removing all the hardware, cleaning and polishing the shells and all the hardware, then reassembling makes sure everything will be spotless and smooth as glass.

          I actually have these microfiber car wash gloves? Been using those and a T. But thanks! Yes, the little spaces behind the lugs etc.

            Swiffer for the win.

              Old Dog,

              I know what you mean. I always keep mine covered when I'm not playing them.

                Yes, definitely. Suckers look like Lebron attacked them with talc I wipe them down daily.

                    Glenn - If you purchased NIB from an authorized Pearl dealer and do not reside in the U.S., please contact your Pearl authorized dealer POP (point of purchase) and they should look into it for you.

                      my head is spinning about this ''problem'''.is it a chemical reaction resulting into the daily ''creation''' of dust on the surface of the drum ,or is it a simple static phenom,like the dust in the air sticking to the finish via static power?

                      the sealer used to protect the paint add a outer layer resembling plastic, which is static conductor.

                        I'm really not sure what the deal was with this film/haze and how it was developing on my Ref. Pure, but Al and Pearl took care of me and fixed the issue. In any case I now have a Music City Custom kit in white marine Pearl and it's beautiful.

                          So I mentioned above, my ddrum kit was having a dust/film problem since purchasing in December. After posting above, I started doing some searching--purchased this stuff https://www.amazon.com/Music-Nomad-M...gateway&sr=8-2

                          My snare drum has been sitting, uncovered, near a heat register, not a lick of dust since buying this cleaner/polish.

                          I don't think we have the same problem. And I've not owned my kit for near as long as you've owned the one in question. But, at $10, I'd give it a try. Won't hurt. Good luck

                              So, that's how this is ending up. The MCC kit will get built when they get my old shells back, which will happen probably next week some time. So I should have the new kit some time in the first couple weeks of March based on their 2 week lead time and shipping times, etc.[/QUOTE]
