HOW-TO INSTALL 

Upgrading your snare hardware with the Snare Tune Up Kit is a critical step toward perfecting your snare tone. Follow the steps below to ensure a smooth, successful installation.

CLEAN 

With the drum disassembled, use this opportunity to clean the shell with the included Polish Cloth. Use the included Metal Polish to revive hoops and metal hardware. You may also wish to apply the included Lug Lubricant to ensure a smooth installation and tuning process.
