Hey, would love to hear from some of the vets how they keep their pipes looking pristine during shows with lots of people handling their work!

Hope everyone's prep is going well for Chicago!

Use this or similar to finish your pipes. Wax alone looks dull after a few people handle it.

Then I use a cotton cloth to wipe the fingerprints when there's down time.

Flannel buffing rag. If you finished it properly, it shouldn't really dull all that much. You just have to wipe off fingerprints every so often from greasy hands.
