ColorTone Buffing Compounds

About This Item

Professional high gloss polishing
ColorTone Buffing Compounds remove fine scratches from finish topcoats, metal, and plastic surfaces.

Designed specifically for musical instruments
These new formulas will give your instruments a professional shine for a showroom grade high gloss finish.

Used with the StewMac Guitar Buffer, they're ideal for polishing pickguards, bone nuts, wooden bridges, frets and other metal parts too.

ColorTone Buffing Compounds remove more scratches than automotive compounds (the industry standard), and were specifically designed and tested to achieve the stunning mirror finishes found on high-end guitars, mandolins, and other musical instruments.

Great value, less waste
24-ounce buffing bars are smaller than most, but still plenty of compound for years of use in both factories and small shops.

Important: use separate buffing wheels for each grade of compound.

I'm throwing it away

By

Verified Buyer


I bought all 3 compounds a few months ago and used it for the 1st time yesterday. The medium worked ok, but the fine and extra fine were an absolute nightmare. I literally spent more time trying to remove the compound from the guitar than it took to buff it. When charging my wheel, more ended up on the floor and everywhere except the wheel. I will be throwing these in the trash since they almost ruined my guitar.

DO NOT BUY!!!!!

This is the worst buffing compound I have ever used. It leaves a residue that is nearly impossible to get out. I highly recommend Menzerna compounds over this product.

I use this after sanding and hand rubbing lacquer and conversion varnish finishes. It takes out the scratches and does it quickly. I follow it up with the fine compound and I get show quality finishes.

BRING BACK MENZERNA COMPOUND!

By

Verified Buyer


Stewmac used to sell a certain German name brand compounds which are absolutely the best in the world for lacquer finishes. This so-called "ColorTone" compound is little more than bottom of the barrel Chinese garbage. It's mostly air, for one thing; stick one of these things up to your buffing wheel and watch it disappear like a carrot into a wood chipper. I've used almost half a stick already buffing out 4 or 5 guitars, the M brand compound used to last me months. It's messy, I think I got more of it on the floor of my shop than I did on the wheel. Oh, and it cuts like crap. Do yourself a favor and just light your money on fire because that's what buying this buffing compound is like, otherwise do some searching and get something better.

I think I like this better than the other stuff

By

Verified Buyer


We used op all the old compound and ordered this. It seems like the medium cuts better than the old stuff so... less wet sanding.
The fine polishes our clear coat like glass. Can't really ask for much more than that.
Works well on lacquer finishes but we hardly ever use lacquer anymore.

Terrible.

Stewmac use to sell a compound that is great. Color Tone Compound sucks. The Color Tone compound smears and falls apart, leaves the clay color behind. Its just total mess. I threw it out.
