What I've done with anodized alum, is you have to make sure it's clean. Wash it down with Dawn dish soap to get any grease off it, then you can wipe some Vineger over the playing area and let it dry, Then wipe the surface off completely with alcohol and let that dry.
You can also scrub it with a brite pad or fine grit sandpaper, the same as you would a glass call.
Anodize alum is sometime very difficult to get to play, it depends on how thick the anodizing is on it, some play great and some need sanding?
Make sure you striker tip is clean, alum builds up on the tips very easy and needs to be kept clean.
The Vineger actually etches the anodizing and will make it play better without having to sand the black away to make it play, sometimes? Alcohol dries the surface and sometimes that's all you need to do?
That's a couple of things you can try
