I'll second that. I play a Yamaha 822 F, and I found it quite a bit more responsive after removing the (quite thick) epoxy that Yamaha uses. I also like the patina it has developed. I guess that makes me professional and COOL!
After 8 years of using a variety of "space-age dent bags", the only serious damage that it has suffered has been at the hands of Delta Airlines. And, my second-most serious damage was caused (believe it or not) at the hands of a repairman.
