How do I get my yellowed WMP drums back to looking like
they originally were?
It is ok that your drums have yellowed!
This is just a fact of life when dealing with vintage drums. This
gives the drums character!
Have you asked yourself why many
new wrap companies make a vintage WMP that has an aged look to
it? Because it is still cool!
With that said the yellow is part
of the finish. It is all the way through in many cases. You can
with some polishing take off dirt, residue, grime and nicotine
to make them look better and even shiny, but they will still look
So if you can't stand it still,
then sell them to someone that can! Don't take off the finish
and re-do them in new WMP, they will not have the same vibe/character
and will look out of place.
You might also read online about
more drastic techniques to remove some of the yellow and it is
not recommended by many people and can cause damage if not done
So in the end, clean them up and
enjoy them just the way they are!
