  • Cleaning PD-6 heads

    Hi, I've got a stupidly underused kit (hey, what can I say? I'm a guitarist...) that I'm getting ready to sell - probably to a friend. I did a search and read the thread about cleaning a mesh head (only my snare has a mesh head), but I was wondering about how to make the rubber pads look a bit better.


    I've already cleaned them of dust and basic stick marks with a damp cloth, but was wondering what might make them look as new as they really are (similar to how Armor-All does with tires).


    Thanks for any suggestions!

    Craig.


    Here's the kit I'm talking about:

    Welcome to the forum, NW Dreamer!

    There's is canned stuff that's called 303 Aerospace Protectant. Forum-members have made good experiences with this on rubber surfaces, like cymbals and such, it quite seems to do wonders.

    You may want to give it a try!

      Thanks for the reply! That looks like what I need, but it appears to be online-order only. Since I may need to have the kit ready as soon as tomorrow, is there a similar alternative that I can buy from a local Walmart or Home Depot?

        Nope. Don't get any alternatives. Most others like ArmorAll will evntually dry out the rubber and ruin it. Just by it on line.

          Well, I was hoping for something I could use before I sold the kit so it would look its best, but I guess I can just pass on the information to the new owner...

          Thanks for the replies.

            Well, the new owner might will have to hold it for a week or so ...if you tell him you give the set a good, nice cleaning beforehand, I'm sure he agrees on this. You shouldn't really think about selling that kit this condition ...you miss out on a chance to show off something neat!
