Some want to be surfaced smooth and some want a courser surface, but copper wants to play dirty and alum wants to play clean. What I mean is if you surface alum it wants to play better until it starts to glaze back up, copper is just the opposite, if you surface it, to doesn't want to play as good as it did before you resurfaced it. It some playing again to get that call playing good again. That's what I mean by they can be finicky, but they sound great.
When you condition it start off with some very fine grit emory paper, or fine steel wool to start with. You condition it just like a glass call.
