I've used Briwax paste wax before it's good but kind of lethal due
to its use of toluene. Any carnuba wax will do, depends what you want
as a finished result. Some people prefer to use tung oil or danish oil as
it last longer.

Are you able to post a pic of the drum? would love to see it!

I will post a picture as soon as I sort out the technology. Its a 5 1/2" 3 ply 1958 blue duco student model. It needs the aftermarket strainer replaced and I now have a rapid strainer to do this, Cheeeers,,,,,,

Thanks for the reply Mark. Sam at Music Mania put me onto Dunlop 65 bodygloss guitar polish. It is a carnauba wax emulsion and has made a beautiful job of the laquer finish on the outside.
