Re: Metal polishing products?

I use Evaporust for parts that are annoying to deal with (strainers and such).


But for shells and lugs I use Quick-Glo (The fine version) it's amazing.

Re: Another High Priced Vintage Kit For Sale

Re: What's up with head prices going through the roof?

UV1s are my go-to head now. I love the sound, especially on toms and snare, I think they've got real great versatility across tuning ranges, and like you said, they're super durable.

Re: Tension rods, cleaning, rust, soaking

+1 on Evaporust. It's reusable for a while which is great. Soak the rods for a day, rinse them off and then you can pour the Evaporust back into its bottle (I strain it through a coffee filter)....
