Default Mid 70ís B/O Supra

Hard to believe this is the same drum before and after.

Gentle cleaning with some Bar Keepers Friend, then a light coat of turtle wax.

It finally looks as good as it sounds!

Thanks! I thought for sure this drum would be covered in the typical acne, but I canít believe how clean it turned out.

I really canít find any flaws in the finish.
