As for the colors, a lot depends on how much humidity the instrument encounters. When I took the first prototype to tropical Thailand in late 2016, the colors faded in a few weeks. When I passed one around at a drum jam and lots of sweaty hands were all over it, the colors faded in one night. But typically the colors begin to fade after several months. Once the colors fade, the underlying pinkish-gold color of the bronze can be brought out, without impacting the tuning, by gently sanding the instrument with a sanding sponge. Small faded remnants of the colors will remain, with the base color of the metal as primary.
