Cleaning the Zendrum
« on: May 19, 2009, 04:17:06 PM »

Is it safe to use one of those compressed air cans to clean the dust off the zendrum? what methods do people use to clean their zendrums?

I've used the compressed air cans to get the dust off my trigger shocks--I haven't seen any problems with it.  I just use a soft, non-abrasive cloth to wipe it down.

I went to the guitar center and bought a cleaning cloth that guitar players use to clean their guitars.  There is one that has some sort of chemical treatment, I got the one that does not have that.  It works great for cleaning the finger prints and oils from your fingers off without scratching the finish.

Avast Thar Mateys,

      On the advice of our dear Inspector 109, I have been using Isopropyl Alcohol and a lint free cloth to clean the Jolly Roger Zendrum. Since humans cannot consume Isopropyl Alcohol (what a shame), it comes in handy as a cleaning solution, leaves no residue, drys quickly and doesn't harm the fine finish of the old Jolly Roger.  Best of all, it is inexpensive.

     Hope this helps.

I have been cleaning mine with Ernie Ball guitar polish with a guitar polishing cloth forever.  Looks great!

I will have to pick up some of that polish when I get back from Iraq and give it a try.
