Kevins, TommyP, Thanks! Very good points and glad your both ontop of your game. That could be a VERY costly mistake. I wasn't even thinking of the cellulose wraps. I think I'll stick to my mellow yellow wraps.


TMTM, yes the Novus products are VERY good. Stewart MacDonald also makes a very good product. A scratch remover and a preservation polish. I have used the SM products on both my kits.

i think i'm going to try this on my ludwig preserial WMP cannister throne.

i know what you're thinking..."DON'T YOU DARE TOUCH THAT CANNISTER THRONE YOU FOOL!"

but honestly this wrap is in SUCH bad condition that i thought someone had rewrapped it with yellow...gum? or something

i'll try posting some before and after pictures and let you guys know how it goes

hmm...i'm not sure where to get all those ingredients from though :S

That's most likely going to be a cellulose wrap.......

Well I think T-Cut is worth to try, even on celullose.
Celullose was used to build piano keys, here is advice to use it for cleaning:

yeah i saw tommy's post, but i figured i'd give it a go to definitively answer the question.

I remember trying to find his method for unyellowing the white marine pearl - but all i could ever find was that its risky - nothing on the actual method!

i'm willing to experiment on this wrap because honestly - if you saw you you wouldn't even think it was white marine pearl in the first place.

let me take a photo and show you guys...

Wow, that looks really not WMPish at all!
Please keep us posted, Larry and the rest of the Drummerworld forum is eager to see the results.

I've used peroxide for a few years now----without the goop; those are just carriers. It has limited effectiveness on the celluloid wrap, maybe moreso on PVC wraps. It depends on how old and oxidized the wrap is. Generally , I use water+ detergent then water then peroxide then follow up with white vinegar then water then Meguiar's PlastX. I've brought a lot of yellow out of some pretty rough wraps but they never come out like new. Especially difficult are checked wraps, where the air has impregnated various areas and caused darkening.

not yet - i'm in australia and its winter here so there is no UV to be had - but i think i might be able to give it a go today.

the other problem is, the recipe says you need 10 - 15% strength, but i looked everywhere and could only find 6% strength so...its not a GREAT trial of how it works, but i suppose its better than nothing.
