Default Tannoy Wood Wax Experience?

I obtained a pair of Turnberry GL a few months ago and am really enjoying the sound.

The speakers came with a tin of wood wax. I am considering using it soon. Has anyone used the Tannoy supplied wood wax and how did it come out? Any tips on the best way to apply this?

Did my Canterbury SE a few times, and now GR once - it's due again! It works great; gives it a nice subtle sheen and helps darken them. I have no experience with being handy at anything, lol.

I probably used half the GR wax tin on the first application. Need to get more. I find that a good soft white cotton t-shirt works well (toss it afterwards). Tannoy used to include white muslin cloths but the t-shirt works so much better. Just use to to swipe a dab from the tin and get to buffing. Enjoy! I love the smell too, which will linger a few days.

My Canterbury GR came new out of the box pretty dry and blonde (much darker now, 1.5 years later), so I think it's a good idea to get the first wax in ASAP. The great thing about these Tannoys is that the Walnut's beauty increases with age.

Congratulations on your new Tannoy's! I have Tannoy Canterbury GR and have waxed mine a couple of times since I bought them. They look fantastic after waxing. Absolutely beautiful wood and finish that looks richer each time you wax them.

I just apply it like any wax and wipe it off with a clean microfiber cloth. I started on one of the sides the first time to get a feel for it but quickly discovered it's just wood wax so proceeded to do each speaker a section at a time.

The wax has a pleasing smell so your room smells fresh after you finish and the music sounds better.
