    How would you go about cleaning the interior of a Ludwig with clear interiors? I've got a bass drum with glue and foam residue, as well as several toms with gunk and grime on the interiors. I don't want to damage the wood or the finish on the inner ply. What would you guys recommend?

    Me personally I would scrap the bulk stuff off, try some xylene to remove the glue

    In this order

    Goof Off
    Ooops
    Lacquer thinner
    0000 steel wool

    You can always buff up the finish afterwords if it should get dull. Automotive polishing compound and wax will do the trick

    So that means the lacquer thinner just strips what's left of the gunk with some minor cosmetic damage to the finish? Or is it the steel wool that will cause the dulling?
