I actually used it for the first time today while restringing one of my basses, a four string, so this tool got a light test the first time around. I like the way the winder did not slip off the tuners but stayed on, making the job easier and faster. I think it will REALLY come in handy when I have to restring my Rhapsody-12 or my Schecter-8! It seems to be quite solid, especially for plastic, and the cutter works almost without effort. We'll see it does when I have to redo the strings with my 3 basses that have low F# (.165), even one with a low C# (.194) - if the string will even fit into the cutting slot. I'm happy with it and should have bought one a long time ago.

Decent idea, just cheaply made. I bought this for my 5 string bass and found that the handle unscrews itself when taking strings off. Plastic is cheap and not made for the long haul. String cutter does work though again its not made for longevity. On the plus side it does do away with having to carry an extra tool around. Save your money and look for a custom made winder made from quality materials.

indespensable tool

Comments about D'Addario Planet Waves Bass Pro String Winder/Cutter:

overall it's very convenient. especially when you break a string on stage and need to change it fast. the handles are solid, the cutter works, and the winder fits the pegs on my jazz bass perfectly.
Bass Pro String Winder/Cutter. String winder is larger to fit the large tuning pegs of a bass guitar. The built in string cutter is great for trimming the excess string lead.
well built. i was worried about the plastic handle for the string cutter, but i got it and it's actually pretty solid
two must-have tools in one. isn't that the definition of value?

Must have tool

By Rhythm Man

Comments about D'Addario Planet Waves Bass Pro String Winder/Cutter:

This simple little tool takes the tedium out of installing new strings on your bass. I recently purchased one of these (I've had the guitar string winder for years), just in time to re-string 3 of our basses on the the same day. What can I say? It does what it was designed to do, and speeds up the process of winding your new strings (and taking off the old ones). I was able re-string and setup all three instruments quickly. And, because I used this handy little tool, I was able to spend more time on setting action and intonation, and less time doing the mechanical act of winding on a string. The only reason I gave it a 4.5 on quality is that if you are really rough on your tools, you might be able to break this one. Having said that, my guitar winder has lasted nearly 6 years with no problems, and I expect the same from this bass winder.

    Comments about D'Addario Planet Waves Bass Pro String Winder/Cutter:

    The winder does what it supposed to do, but the cutter is not large enough for all bass strings. Make the cutter opening larger. But I will still use it for changing strings, it will save a lot of time!

            The tool works as it should. Have only used twice,so will have to see if construction and plastic materials hold out.

            Comments about D'Addario Planet Waves Bass Pro String Winder/Cutter:

            Overall this is a really good product for un-stringing and restringing a bass. The cutter snips the wire quick and clean with little effort, and the winder speeds up the process. the only draw back is depending on the size of your tuning keys it is a bit wobbly so you have to pay attention and move slower then you may initially want to to keep from banging it against other tuning keys or the head stock itself, thus would be nice if it had something to give a bit more grip on the key that reduced the wobble.

              Finally a string winder I can use on my basses. Cuts my restringing time in half. Also the cutter tool is great as well.
