How To Clean Rock Band Instruments

Updated on July 17, 2012

This past Christmas, my youngest son's number one wish was for Rock Bank. My husband was able to find one, slightly used, on Craigslist at a steal of a price. We met with the woman and purchased it, and my first mission was to figure out how to clean rock band instruments.

Because of the electronics I was hesitant to use anything too strong, yet I wanted to make sure that the instruments were clean before I let me son play with them. I did quite a bit of research online and want to compile everything in one place to help others who are just as confused as I was.

There are many different products that you can use in order to clean rock band instruments.  As a general rule of thumb, alcohol is going to be the safest substance to use to clean electronics.  Many liquids can cause serious damage to electronic equipment, but alcohol evaporates so quickly that it is safe to use lightly on the instruments.

The alcohol can either be put in a small spray bottle and lightly misted onto the rock back instruments or put directly from the bottle onto a dry, clean cloth.  Regardless of how you apply the alcohol, it is important to make sure that you gently scrub the surfaces with your cloth.  This will remove the dirt and grime that the alcohol has loosened.  Important areas to focus on are around any buttons or knobs.  Dirt collects around these and are generally missed while cleaning.

With alcohol, the only thing that you need to be careful of is to not scrub or use too much alcohol on any stickers.  The alcohol, as it breaks down sticky dirt and crime, will break down the sticky glue that holds the stickers on.  Scrubbing the sticks after applying the alcohol can cause the stickers to come off of your rock back instruments.

If you decide against using alcohol, there are many different cleaning products that you can use to make sure that you get the rock band instruments germ-free.  The easiest product to use would be cleaning wipes, such as Clorox wipes.  These use a superior cleaning agent and allow you to clean the instruments quickly and without leaving excess moisture.

The most important thing to remember is that you don't want to use any type of substance that will ruin your electronics or leave residue on the instruments.  Using spray cleaners like Lysol is generally not recommended as they can leave a residue on the instruments and can even eventually lead to buttons not operating property.
