    What do you use to clean and polish wraps and hardware? My VP snare needs some love and I wanna clean it up the best I can.

    To initially clean I use Auto Glym Waterless Detailer then a process of Carnauba Wax & finishing off with a ceramic coating.

    Awesome, man! Mine is currently set up in our basement, awaiting the second bass drum still haha. It's probably my favorite snare in my collection right now and ironically I paid the least for it: a measly $200 shipped. I'm going to be upgrading the strainer and possibly the hoops, but the badge and lugs need a good cleaning. I have some drum polish but I'm not sure if it'll discolor the wrap since it's intended to be used for lacquers. I have some automotive carnuba wax for the hardware, but not sure what the best method to actually clean it would be.

    I would wager if it's safe for lacquer, it'll be fine for a wrap.
