Bell and Drum Kit care and maintenance


Cleaning Instructions updated March 2020

We recommend washing your hands before and after playing or cleaning your instrument. 

We recommend using a lint free cloth on the outside of your instrument. You can also choose to use a clean, lint free cloth that has been lightly sprayed with disinfecting spray or a disinfectant wipe. To prevent damage, NEVER spray directly on the instrument. CAUTION: Avoid use of any caustic or abrasive products, or undiluted alcohol or undiluted bleach. 

After cleaning your instrument, wash your cleaning cloth with warm soapy water, rinse and let air dry.
