    I have been using this wax polish on my musical instruments for several years. It always leaves a beautiful deep shine and helps to protect from dings scuffing on the wood as it leaves a protective layer.It has helped to polish out what I thought was some pretty serious marks and I am always really pleased with the results.

    I’m so impressed with the results this gives. I originally bought it to clean and care for some rather dirty and dull looking antique spelter figurines. It took me several days of applications but they now look stunning and gleam like new. Seems expensive but a little goes such a long way so it will last ages.
