I'm in need of cleaning the chrome parts on my bass.
I use the treated cotton cloth you can get at the guitar store to polish instruments. They are only a dollar or two. I never use instrument polish but a lot of people do. I find that just the cloth is sufficient to clean all parts of my basses. Always keep one in my case to wipe off the strings after I play too.
Me too, I've only used guitar polish once and I found it to be unnecessary. A quick wipe with a good polish cloth will do the job unless there are stubborn stains like sticker adhesive, I'd recommend just using a normal polish cloth. Make sure you wipe it nice and good before and after you play.
This stuff is awesome for metal. It's what I use on the metal parts of fine violin bows when I'm doing repairs/restorations.
Depends on how long its been between cleans, if I'm regular a cloth will do the trick. Tend to get pretty busy during the uni semester so it doesn't get done as often so I get the tarnish stuff building up. Fabric doesn't work as well so I just just use regular white paper, cuts right through, cause its just like a super fine sandpaper.
Me too, but I do use a silver instrument polish for the vintage basses I own. The tunning pegs need it to shiine like new!
Everyone has already covered the stuff I was going to say....I also keep a can of compressed air (the kind you can get to clean computer keyboards) that I use a lot to spray out the hard to reach spots like between bridge saddles and around pickups and such...works really well also as an added cleaning tool.
