This is weird, but I polished an unlacquered bell of my Olds Recording which had gone to a patina - this is how it was when I got it. Anyway, I swear it plays differently. A bit brighter, more responsive. I can feel it vibrating more in my left hand.....

Yes. You've removed material. It IS lighter.

Yup that's it!! When you polish metal you remove some of the metal making it lighter.
