    Default How do I clean/polish Chrome diecast hoops on my drums without harming & scratching??

    I got a 14x6.5 Pearl Sensitone Premium Brass Snare drum which has Mastercast Diecast chrome hoops and they have some minor pit spots and rust marks and I'm wondering what I can use to restore the chrome to a nice polished look.

    someone told me that #0000 grade steel wool is good for restoring drum chrome hardware but what kind of cream polishes can I use that will make them look like new?


    Also how can I remove rust from my SpinTight Tension rod tuning nuts


    Anyone please help??

    I would just try the polish with a clean cloth first... when you get into power tools, you could do more harm than good.
