Great for protecting your Paiste Gong!
A lot of gong players recommend this Renaissance Wax for their gongs, which is why Gongs Unlimited is happy to offer it to you. This wax offers a protective layer between the surface of your gong and the environment, keeping dust, dirt, particulates, hair, etc. from getting stuck to your gong and affecting the metal.
From Paiste, on Gong Care:
"Gongs should be cleaned from time to time. Dirt, which builds up during set-up, playing and transporting, acts on the gong like a damper and inhibits its natural vibration."
"Each Paiste Gong has a wax coating to guard against oxidizing and dirt build-up. During cleaning the wax coat is gradually removed and has to be replaced."
"For cleaning, do not use grainy or acidic cleaning agents, as well as ones containing ammonia. Cleaning and waxing of the gong should always be done in the direction of the shaving (if present) on the gong surface and only with slight pressure. Use colorless and soft cloth."
"Apply the cleaning agent to the cloth and clean the gong. Rub off any remaining cleaning fluid with two or three more pieces of cloth. Then apply a wax coat. Best suited is a fluid clear wax, such as is usually sold for cleaning and protecting wooden surfaces."
